SESAME LIME CHOW MEIN WITH CRISPY OYSTER MUSHROOMS [VEGAN]
FOR THE NOODLES:
1 package chow mein noodles (small or large, depending on how many you are serving)
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon each garlic and onion powder
Juice of 1 lime
FOR THE VEGETABLES:
2 ears of corn
Red and yellow bell peppers
2 tablespoons minced ginger
5 cloves of garlic
4 cups fresh chard or other greens
Sesame oil, for cooking
FOR THE OYSTER MUSHROOMS:
Taiwanese hot bean paste or Thai chili sauce
Sliced cherry tomatoes
Cook the noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
In a small saucepan, combine broth, flour, garlic and onion powder, lime juice, and scallions. Add noodles and bring to a low simmer, to thicken the sauce.
Grill the vegetables for about 15 minutes each, brushing with olive oil and adding salt and garlic powder as desired. Remove from heat, slice vegetables (and remove corn from the ear), and add to a cast iron skillet with sesame oil, garlic, ginger, and chard. When the chard is wilted, cover the pan and set aside.
Combine enough panko, garlic powder, paprika, and salt in a bowl to coat the mushrooms. Add non-dairy milk to another bowl. Dip the mushroom in the milk, then in the batter. When all mushrooms have been coated, pan-fry in oil until crispy, then add hot bean paste.
