Glass Noodle Casserole with Shiitakes

“This is a quick and easy side dish with a Chinese flair. I love glass noodles, also known as cellophane noodles, transparent noodles, or bean-thread noodles. They are made with mung bean starch, and are purchased as a stiff twiggy bundle. The bundles vary in size; this recipe calls for the smallest bundles available. When cooked they turn clear and slippery and soak up flavours most beautifully.”

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Soak the noodles in boiling water.

  4. Meanwhile, prepare the vegetables.
  5. Layer them in a small deep casserole dish with the noodles.
  6. Drizzle with the oyster sauce, and pour over the chicken stock, enough to just cover. (You may not need all 4 cups.)
  7. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes.
  8. Serve garnished with the cilantro, if you like.
