I recently purchased a bag of dried things and the package is marked Golden Lion, Soup Stock. It contains what looks like dried mushrooms, some thin rice noodles, some black seaweed very thin, dried dates, and some other stuff. It looked so good and interesting that I bought this bag. NOW, what do I do with this? :-) Yes, I am a beginner with these Asian products. Please help? Thank you
Dried mushrooms and other vegetables can be used to make stock, but since there are rice noodles included as well, I would guess this is a meal kit of sorts. Use the dried ingredients to make stock and add rice noodles to make noodle soup. Of course you can also eat the vegetables if you want. :)
If the vegetables are thin enough they will rehydrate nicely when you add them in to some boiling water. With mushrooms it is usually better to soak them in water for a couple of hours prior to cooking. The soaking liquid is very tasty, and you can add it to the stock – just strain it first because there may be some grit. Add salt and other seasonings to the broth according to your taste. The rice noodles should be cooked separately. Serve them in a bowl and pour the broth on them.
I purchased this soup stock package a month or so ago and today used it for a turkey based soup. Starting with meat onion and oil, then adding a chicken stock, and ingredients. Added Lime Ginger and Soy too. Not sure about the dried dates, not my favorite flavor. But the overall result was a nice easy soup. I would suggest soaking the long strips of bean curd beforehand too! Does the dried moss have a flavor? Loving this site for Asian inspired recipes!
