Home cookin': Mifen

I bought a very short and simple Chinese cooking book at the Eslite book store a while back. Today, I finally got around to making my first dish from it. Mifen (米粉) or rice vermicelli. It's pretty simple recipe, but it does require quite a few ingredients. mostly vegetables, rice vermicelli noodles and a few sauces. I also made KongXinCai (空心菜). It's a chinese vegetable with a hollow stem and long thin leaves. This recipe was quite simple. Just vegetable oil, chopped garlic and the vegetables. Yuki and I had so much fun cooking it! The food came out great, but we loved the KongXinCai the most. Who knew, the vegetables would win out like that. It tasted slightly garlicky, but mostly sweet and crunchy (vegetable crunchy). It's so simple of a recipe I won't be surprised to find myself making that over and over again in the future. I'm so content...time to get all couch potato!
