Homemade Dandan noodles. A noodle dish originating from Chinese Sichuan cuisine consisting of a spicy sauce containing preserved vegetables, chili oil,Sichuan pepper, minced pork, and scallions served over noodles. This however is a vegetarian version so the minced pork was omitted!
The name refers to a type of carrying pole (dan dan) that was used by walking street vendors who sold the dish to passers-by. The pole was carried over the shoulder, with two baskets containing noodles and sauce attached at either end. The noodles cost almost nothing, and gradually local people came to call them dandan noodles. Literally, the name translates as “noodles carried on a pole,” but may be better translated as “peddler’s noodles.”
Homemade Vegan Ramen
Started with a few cups of vegetable stock and few cups of water. Placed about a cup of sliced shitake mushrooms, 2 cloves of garlic, and about an inch piece of ginger into the stock. Brought to boil, let reduce about 20-30 minutes.
Roasted the broccoli and onions with a little bit of olive oil, sesame oil, and salt/pep.
Once stock was reduced I put the noodles in to warm up, then served once heated thoroughly, topping with the broccoli, onions and shitakes.
