       3 c  Soybean sprouts (NOT mung
            -bean sprouts)
       4    Green onions, shredded
     1/2 c  Nami dried black mushrooms,
            -soaked & shredded
     1/2 c  Cloud Ear dried fungus,
            -soaked
     1/2 c  Dried lily flowers, soaked
            -and hard tips removed
       2 oz Bean thread noodles, soaked
       1 ts Salt (to taste)
  
   About 6 to 8 T peanut oil for stir-frying
   PREPARATION:  Shred in 2 lengths:  carrots, turnip, Chinese celery and
   beancurd.  Shred onions, greens & all, into 2 lengths.
   Rinse, then soak in hot water:  enough mushrooms, fungus and lily flowers
   to give specified amounts.  Shred mushrooms, chop fungus.  Soak bean thread
   noodles.  Bean thread noodles are important because they soak up excess
   moisture from the vegetables.  Vegetables should be moist but not soggy or
   watery after stir-frying.
   STIR-FRYING:  Stir-fry fresh vegetables separately with about 1 tablespoon
   oil for each, in hot wok.  Add salt to taste.  Drain off excess water,
   reserve.  (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.
