Mushroom Yee Mee Soup

Devastating is the aftermath of Hurricane "Haiyan. A mess in Philippines, so far at least 100 people are dead and many are without water, food and shelter. I am equally devastated over the tragic incident as the world's strongest tropical cyclone has affected the people in one of the most natural disaster prone countries in the world. Can you imagine what's running through the mind of the women who have left their mother land and are working as helpers to support their families financially?  I am sure they are concern and worried.  Maybe we can't do much but sure our thoughts and prayers to the people.   

Over at my place, its been raining almost every day. While so far the situation is under control, I am reaching home later because of the traffic jam. Driving is really frustrating, what more with the hell drivers who don't care less about others. We have been warned and we have also been told to drive carefully during rainy season, yet people still speed. Consequently when these hell drivers cause accidents, we are stuck in the massive traffic jam. 

As soon as I reached home on this particular day, I searched the fridge to see if there's leftovers for dinner. But sad that I couldn't find anything. The next of course was looking for ingredients for a heart warming meal. Since my pantry and fridge are always well stocked up, there were stuffs. Within 1/2 hour, this noodle dish was prepared - the best comforting meal to warm up during cold weather.  

Ingredients - Serves two people
1 can straw mushrooms (or any other)
6 garlic - crushed
1 1/2 tbsp kei chi (wolfberries) -soaked in water to soften
Salad leaves - as needed
3/4 litre vegetable stock - (either instant/powdered/home-made)
2 rolls Yee Mee (or your choice of noodles)
1 tbsp oil
Crushed black pepper and salt for taste
Spring onion for garnishing
Sauté garlic in oil.
Pour stock and simmer.
Add kei chi and mushrooms, continue to simmer till heated through.
Season with salt and pepper
Place noodle on a serving plate/bowl.
Dip salad leaves in the soup and add on top of noodle.  
Pour soup over and garnish with spring onion.
Optional: serve with sliced chillies drenched in soya sauce and lime.
