Mushroom Yee Mee Soup

Weather seemingly is ruling and ruining us. Hot burning weather does make we sweat profusely, doesn't it? So, what do we actually do in return? We blast our air-cond, we become air-cond dependent, and we let our electric bill overrule our monthly cost of living. Then again, when rain starts lashing, we are stuck for hours in traffic jam. Sometimes even before we start our day at work, other times when we are returning home. Either way, rainy weather calls for bowl comfort food (Coriander Tomato Potato Soup, Prawn Curry Mee & Japanese Radish Mushroom Soup) and comfort food may not necessarily be soupy meaty meals. Such a Mushroom Yee Mee Soup is also comforting too, whether you are born vegetarian, or you choose to be a vegetarian for whatever reason is may be or you want to abstain from meat every now and then. Put together within 1/2 an hour, provided you have all the ingredients on stand-by, this Mushroom Yee Mee Soup is equally sensation as other the rest of the vegetarian bowl dishes (Mee Rebus Vegetarian, Indian Onion Soup, Dhal Vegetable Soup, Chinese Burdock Soup & Potato Bok Choy Soup). Seriously, you should make it.  Who ever said vegetarian noodles dishes are boring? Not for me though. 

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.
