I am not someone who is known for measuring anything. It's always a little bit of this, a bunch of that, and a pinch of this... so here it goes..
A bunch or handful of dandelion leaves
Organic/unpasturized/GMO free Red Miso Paste ( 3+ tablespoons or as desired to your taste)
1 cup shitake or mushrooms of your choice
2 stalks of scallion chopped
Rice noodles (as desired)
Sesame seed oil
Dried seaweed (2-3 sheets or desired seaweed)
-Sautee mushrooms in sesame seed oil on high heat. Keep the mushrooms half raw so not a whole lot of sauteeing time.
-Add dandelion and stirfry lightly with mushrooms.
-Cook the noodles until al-dente, and drain. Leave to the side.
- Add 2 1/2 cups of fresh filtered water back up to boil. When boiled, turn off the flame.
-Wisk in the miso paste into the boiled filtered water. No flame on in order not to destroy the naturally occuring probiotics in the miso.
-Once wisked through, pour over your noodles in a bowl, add sauteed mushrooms, dandelion, chopped scallion and dried seawead.
