After making a cooked Dan Dan Mian for my fella, I really wanted to try making a raw (or at least, mostly raw) version. This is what I came up with, & it was pretty tasty, if I do say so myself. Traditionally this is a spicy sauce containing preserved vegetables, chili oil, Sichuan peppers, pork, and scallions...

Recipe Directions

- stir all topping ingredients together. Place in a shallow bowl in dehydrator for 20-30 minutes, or in an oven on it's lowest setting with the door ajar. Alternatively, leave to marinade at room temperature.

- warm the water to hand hot (feels warm to your hand, but is far from painfully hot). Whisk in the tahini or nut butter.

- spoon the courgette noodles into a bowl, pour over the nut butter water and top with the mushroom mix. Sprinkle on the spring onion.

Traditionally this is a spicy sauce containing preserved vegetables, chili oil, Sichuan peppers, pork, and scallions served over noodles. Apparently, there are as many versions of this as there are Chinese cooks! This one is based on one in 'Authentic Chinese cuisine for the contemporary kitchen' by Bryanna Clark Grogan. The addition of sesame or peanut butter is a modern one.
