Black Fungus Grade A
Black fungus, also called cloud ear mushrooms, make an exceptional addition to a stir-fry and fragrant soup or can be served on their own as a starter. Their shape turn them into the perfect vessel to hold on to the lip-smacking spicy, garlicky and tangy dressing with black vinegar, soy sauce and plenty of coriander.
As they are traditionally served cold, they are also easy to prepare ahead. Just always make sure to adjust the seasoning before serving as it might have watered down a little bit if they weren’t drained well enough and have been sitting in the fridge.
It’s definitely worth hitting up your local Chinese supermarket to get your hands on a bottle of black vinegar. That stuff is liquid gold and difficult to substitute. If you’re struggling, you could use rice wine vinegar rather than balsamic.
