Lemon Ginger Asparagus and King Trumpet Mushroom with Tapioca Thread Glass Noodles
So very light and delicious!
Sure, I could have made this a vegetarian entree, but this entree tastes much better with chicken stock! Sometimes flavor wins the battle of trying to attract vegans to a recipe. Lemon chicken flavors are a classic flavor combination that cannot be duplicated with vegetable stock. Ginger lemon flavor with chicken stock is even better!
I felt like proving a point concerning king trumpet mushrooms. I have stated in past blogs that king mushrooms have a very long shelf life, when they are refrigerated. I purchased 3 fresh king trumpet mushrooms on 2/22/12. I cooked two king mushroom recipes on 2/23/12 and 2/28/12. The third king mushroom sat in my refrigerator for more than one month and it still looked as fresh as the day I purchased it at the Chinese market in Chinatown Las Vegas! That proves the king mushroom's long shelf life point!
