Mu Shu Vegetables
1 package mu shu pancakes (check these for fat content first)
a few wood ear or cloud ear mushrooms, soaked in hot water for 30 minutes and then cut
into thin strips
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large onion, cut into very thin wedges
1 small head green cabbage, finely shredded
1 small carrot, shredded
4 oz can mushrooms, drained (or equivalent fresh, sauteed in water)
3-4 green onions, cut into 2 inch pieces
Soy sauce or tamari to taste
In a large wok or skillet, saute the garlic and onions for three minutes in a little water or
vegetable broth. Add the cabbage, carrot and mushrooms and saute until cabbage just wilts.
Add the green onions, soy sauce (about 1-2 tbsp is good) and about 1 tbsp of hosin sauce.
Place one pancake in the microwave for 10 seconds (helps to make them more pliable).
Remove and spread with a tbsp of hosin sauce, and then about 1/2 cup of the mu shu
mixture. Fold the bottom of the pancake up about 1/4 of the way, then fold the two sides in. I
sort of roll them, actually, so it is easier to eat.
You could also add some julienne strips of tofu or any other vegetables you like (i.e., bean
sprouts, celery, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, etc.).
This was even better the second day (don’t put them in the pancakes until right before you
want to eat them, however).
