recipe is: Spaghetti and Mushrooms

this is a dish i concocted one day when i just wanted a light, meatless spaghetti dish.


725 gms spaghetti boiled to just undercooked

12 shiitake mushrooms, sliced (if using dried ones, soak for 2 hours first)

2 cans straw mushrooms, cut into halves

1 can abalone mushrooms, diagonally sliced thinly

1 can button mushrooms, thinly sliced

4 tablespoons oyster sauce/vegetarian oyster sauce

6 tablespoons chinese cooking wine (can be substituted with 3 tablespoons of cider vinegar)

1 tablespoon concentrated chicken stock/vegetable stock

1 tablespoon roughly grounded blackpepper

4 teaspoon salt

6 bay leaves

6 drops/half a teaspoon sesame oil

16 cloves of garlic, skin peeled

300 ml hot water

6 tablespoon of olive oil


boil the spaghetti in 1 table spoon of salt water until just undercooked (best to do this just before stir frying in the mushroom mix)

in a pan (use a bigger pan as the spaghetti will be added to this later), heat the olive oil, add the garlic and 1 teaspoon of salt and fry til golden

add all the mushrooms, bay leaves, black pepper and fry for another 5 minutes

in a bowl, mix the 300 ml of hot water with the oyster sauce, cooking wine, chicken stock, sesame oil and 2 teaspoon of salt, stir to mix well and add to pan of mushroom

cook for another 2 minutes and add the cooked spaghetti , mix well and stir fry for another 3 minutes

serves 6
