(Soybean sprouts should be cooked until they are slightly charred for fullest flavor.) To stir-fry dried soaked ingredients begin with hot wok add 2 to 3 tablespoons oil then add mushroom fungus & lily flowers. Stir-fry green onions add all other ingredients to them including noodles. Allow dish to cool before serving. NOTE: Fresh or canned bamboo shoot may be substituted for any vegetable. Seaweed may be used instead of some of the fungus.
