Chinese noodles with wooden ears

The other day I found bamboo shoots in a jar in a shop and I immediately thought of a Chinese dish. I also bought wooden ears and a bag of rice noodles and I was already imagining how I would prepare them.

I know it may sound heavy and expensive, but it's not. Rice noodles can be found in almost all stores, as well as soy sauce. We don't miss the house, I rarely make a rice dish that I don't sprinkle with soy sauce. Walnut kernels can be replaced with peanuts, or peanuts. On the other hand, we can't find wooden ears and bamboo shoots everywhere, but you will definitely find them in bigger stores. Wooden ears are sold either on the shelf of mushrooms or on the shelf of international products. Also at the latter you will find bamboo shoots.

Wooden ears are rich in vitamins and minerals and are a good source of protein and fiber. They help lower blood cholesterol, strengthen the immune system and improve blood circulation. In addition to the benefits they have for the body, they are also very tasty. In combination with rice noodles, vegetables, nuts and flavored with soy sauce are simply delicious.


  • 300 g of rice noodles
  • 150 g wooden ears
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1/2 red pepper
  • 150 g bamboo shoots
  • 1 cm ginger root
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 70 g walnut / hazelnut kernels
  • soy sauce
  • salt


1. The wooden ears must be left to soak for at least 30 minutes in hot water, then strain them with water and wash them very well.

2. We clean the garlic cloves, press them and temper them with a tablespoon of oil and ginger, cleaned and given through a small grater. I used walnut oil, but you can use any oil you have in the house. Add the sliced ​​peppers and carrots, cover with a lid and let the vegetables simmer for 7-8 minutes.

3. Add the wooden ears, bamboo shoots, chopped walnut kernels, salt to taste and quench with soy sauce. The soy sauce is put in the same way, according to everyone's taste. You can put a few tablespoons of vegetables, and along the way add as much as you think is needed.

4. Separately put a pot of water to boil for the noodles. They do not have to boil much because they will stick and crush. When the water starts to boil, put the noodles and leave them for 2, maximum 3 minutes, then strain them with water and mix them with the vegetables. Leave the wok on the fire for a few more minutes, until the flavors mix.

For some time now, this assortment has been frequently found in Auchan's fishery - squid tentacles. Large, very large, at a very convenient price, so that they have become indispensable among my priorities of culinary experiments. The inspiration is from Italian cuisine, as well as the few useful but evasive data on cooking time. (For those who are not yet very familiar with the problem: the meat of these mollusks is very versatile and you can not go wrong with any combination of ingredients or spices, but you can go wrong in terms of cooking time that varies, depending on the size of the monster marine, between 3 minutes and 2 hours. If it is too boiled, it becomes rubbery, if it is not boiled enough, it is raw, and hard.) Personally I missed a couple of attempts with this size of tentacles until I find the optimal point . But the result of success is worth even a few less tender (but edible) attempts: it's tasty! A white meat scented with the aromas of tomato sauce with wine, a light food, very healthy, low in unbearable fats but generous in unsaturated fatty acids and very rich in clean proteins, of wild origin. It is a hot salad that can be served with couscous or rice, which can be turned directly into pasta sauce, or which can be served as such, with toast and a salad of vegetables. In any case, a glass of dry red wine or prosecco is an indispensable companion.

Ingredients (for two people):

  • Large squid tentacles, around 500 grams (we had 4 pieces of 560 gr. Together)
  • A small can of whole tomatoes peeled in juice (3-4 fresh, medium, peeled tomatoes)
  • 3 - 4 cloves of garlic
  • 100 - 150 ml. dry white wine
  • 30 ml. Apple vinegar
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • Olive oil, 2-3 tablespoons
  • Dried pepperoncino (chilli) to taste
  • 5 - 6 bay leaves
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1-2 teaspoons of sugar
  • Salt

Boil 1.5 - 2 l of water with one or two teaspoons of sugar and bay leaves and vinegar. Wash the tentacles thoroughly under a continuous stream of cold water, insisting on the side with suction cups to eliminate possible traces of sand. If they are still welded, they separate from each other. With the smooth side of a hammer for schnitzels (or with a 1 l bottle) beat each tentacle separately, without crushing, for tenderizing. When the water starts to boil, place the tentacles one by one and somewhat neatly on the bottom of the pot, so that they all remain immersed in the water after they stiffen (almost instantly). Cover the pot with a lid and simmer for about 40 minutes (for the size indicated on the ingredients). They are cooked when the fork enters the meat relatively easily, but this “relatively” and this “easy” can be misleading: if it seems to enter relatively easily after the first 10 minutes of cooking, at the indicative dimensions I gave you, no are still cooked, I assure you. Well, after boiling, remove from the water and set aside to cool. In a large frying pan, prepare the sauce: the peeled and crushed garlic, together with the hot pepper, fry for 10 & 30 seconds in the olive oil, quench with the tomatoes cut into large pieces together with their juice, season with salt, of pepper, add the wine, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the tentacles into slices, thinner (2-3 mm) in areas with a larger circumference and progressively thicker as they thin out (the last 5-10 cm from the tip of the tentacle are left whole for decoration). Put the squid in the tomato sauce, mix and let it boil for 10, max. 15 minutes, until the sauce becomes thick. Finely chop the parsley, put it on top of the sauce, turn off the heat and stir.

We served it with a natural couscous, a lettuce and a dry Cabernet-Sauvignon, from Cricova (Underground City). Very good!

Bamboo Rice Salad - Recipes

The recipe for classic California caravans causes a lot of controversy about the ingredients used. Many sushi chefs use cucumbers instead of avocado for the filling, as this is a fairly hard fruit that chews for a long time. Another element in dispute is crab meat. Some Japanese restaurants prefer to replace crab meat with crab sticks, as this not only significantly reduces the cost of the roll, but also makes it softer and softer.

  • - 100 g of Japanese boiled rice
  • - 2-3 leaves pressed by clouds of algae
  • - 100 g of crab sticks or crab meat
  • - 1 avocado or cucumber
  • - sesame or tobiko caviar
  • - Wasabi
  • - food film
  • - bamboo makisa.

Spread the film hanging on a bamboo makisa and put half a sheet of cloud algae on it. We moisten our hands with water so that the rice does not stick to them. Form an even layer of rice on the surface of the leaf, leaving about 1 cm of algae that is not covered with rice from one edge.

Pour the seaweed sheet so that the rice surface is on the food film. Apply wasabi to seaweed with a thin layer. At the edge of the roll, place the crab sticks (or crab meat) in one or two layers, depending on the desired thickness of the roll. Then put a few cucumber cloths (or a strip of avocado) on the crab sticks.

Make sure that the filling has the same thickness and length, we start to gently twist the roll, pressing lightly on the makissa. We unwrap the bamboo makis and take out the film.

Sprinkle the roll with tobiko caviar or sesame seeds, then carefully cut into several equal parts.

The "California" corners must be served with soy sauce, wasabi and pickled ginger.

1. Chop the onion and marinate it in the lemon juice.

2. Mix the onion with the tuna.

3. Arrange the salad in layers as follows: boiled rice, grated cheese, tuna with onion, grated cucumber, grated boiled egg.

For starters, boil the rice in 3 cups of water and a little salt.

When it is cooked (about 10 minutes) let it cool a bit and then put it in a bowl.

Add flour, salt, pepper, pepper paste, grated cheese and a little smoked paprika. Stir until smooth.

To be as efficient as possible, first we shape the meatballs, then we fry them.

With a wet hand we shape the meatballs inside which we put a piece of cheese. We pass each one through a beaten egg and then through the breadcrumbs and fry them in oil, turning them on all sides until they are nicely browned.

We take them out on a paper napkin and serve them as I wrote with a salad and a yogurt sauce. You can also serve them with natural potatoes.

Forget how the cheese is spread :)

You can serve them both hot and cold.
