Rice Noodles with Wonton & Mushroom Sauce - A Chinese Delight











Dive into a bowl of heartwarming Rice Noodles served with savory Wontons, all bathed in a rich Mushroom Sauce. This dairy-free comfort dish will entice your taste buds with its flavorful blend, offering a delightful texture and aromatic appeal. Perfect for a cozy dinner!


Step 1: Preparing the Ingredients

Begin by soaking the rice noodles in warm water for about 20 minutes until they soften. Meanwhile, rehydrate your mushrooms in a separate bowl of warm water, squeeze out the excess, and slice them up, discarding the tough stems. To quickly cook your finely chopped carrots, microwave them with a little water for 1-2 minutes, then set aside for garnishing later. This simple prep work will lay the foundation for your mouth-watering dish.
Pro Tip: Use the mushroom-soaking water in your sauce for an extra flavor boost!

Step 2: Making Wontons

Lay out your wonton wrappers and place a teaspoon of your filling just off-center. Fold into a triangle, sealing the edges well. This technique will ensure your wontons are packed with flavor and ready to add a delightful texture to your meal. Repeat this process until all your filling is used up.
Pro Tip: Press edges with a fork for a decorative touch and to seal the wontons tightly.

Step 3: Cooking Mushroom Sauce & Wontons

Warm some oil in a pan, cook chopped garlic until almost brown, then add your sliced mushrooms, stirring for 2-3 minutes. Season to taste and add water, letting it simmer to create your mushroom sauce. Parallelly, boil your wontons until they float to the surface, indicating they're cooked. Reheat your noodles briefly under hot water or in a microwave before assembling your dish.
Pro Tip: Boil wontons in small batches to avoid sticking.

Step 4: Assembling the Dish

Thicken your mushroom sauce with a cornflour mixture, then layer your dish starting with noodles. Spoon over a generous amount of mushroom sauce, add your cooked wontons on top, and garnish with carrots and spring onions. The vibrant colors of the vegetables against the creamy sauce and golden wontons will make your meal an aesthetic delight as well as a culinary one.
Pro Tip: Drizzle sesame oil over the dish before serving for an aromatic finish.
