Homemade Vegetarian Noodle Prawn

After Baking

Was curious how to make the vegetarian noodle prawn and try it. As I did not have wonton noodle at home, so I just made do without using it to tie the vegetarian noodle prawn. Use granulated mushroom bouillon or any other vegetarian seasoning to replace the spice salt if desired. Decided to toast it instead of deep-fry for a healthy dish and it is much simpler.

Preparation: 15 mins, Cooking time: 10 mins

Ingredients (makes 12)
° 12 pieces beancurd skin (11cm x 11cm)
° 12 pieces beancurd skin (5cm x 8cm)
° 50g carrot, peeled and cut into 6cm x 1cm strip
° 50g white radish, peeled and cut into 6cm x 1cm strip
° 2 fresh shiitake mushroom, cut into 12 strip
° olive oil, for brushing

° ¼ teaspoon sesame oil
° 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
° ½ teaspoon sugar
° ¼ teaspoon spices salt or taste
° pepper to taste

1. Combine the carrot, radish, mushroom with seasoning and mix well. Marinate for 15 – 30 minutes.
2. Wipe the beancurd sheet with wet kitchen towel to remove saltiness. Lay the big beancurd sheet on a plate or chopping board. Then, place a smaller beancurd sheet on top in the middle.
3. Place the carrot, radish, mushroom on the top. Fold in the top corner, wrap up, and give it a little twist near the end. Alternatively, tie with noodle. Brush with olive oil. Repeat with the rest.
4. Place in the toaster oven or oven. Toast or bake until golden yellow.
5. Remove and serve immediately.

Wow, looks like a success, would turnip be a better choice than white radish since you are eating it fresh?

I love beancurn skin & espy vegn noodle prawn. I like it as the mock cereal prawn style too but was unable to get the right cereal taste at home:-(
Wonder if you know any tips to make it as fragnant & tasty?
Cheers, Sunny:-)

Hi Sunny

Turnip is commonly used, just substitue with white radish if turnip is unavailable. The commerical veg. noodle prawn is "fatter", it used beancurd stick (soaked).

Cereal prawn :) it is milk powder plus butter. I didn't include that in my recipe for a vegan version. Don't forget sugar, salt.

Cheers :)

WOOTZ BEANCURD SKIN'S MY FAV!! I love the texture...

oh and by the way I found the rice wrappers!! They're very cute. Can't wait to use them.

Finally we don't deep fry stuff.

Looks great! I hope to give it a try soon. About what temperature did you bake it and for about how long?

Hi Crystal,
I came across this recipe page while browsing a Buddhist website.
You may get new ideas from there:

Hi Mel,

That's good, remember to take a picture of the cute little rice paper.

I might do up another dish using the rice paper soon. :)

Thanks Sunny :)So nice of you.

Hi Chow Vegan

So sorry, i can't provide any time for baking, as i toast them in the oven toaster - abt 10 mins.

BTW, I'm going to try your recipe on the tofu with bread crumbs soon.

I follow your method, i did it on the veg. mock fish and toast it. I need to perfect them :)

Cheers :)

Thank you - "My head is too tiny to take such as BIG Hat".

Currently, no such capacity, althought my boy wishes there are more veg eateries, so that there is less killing and more veg. choices.

Cheers :)

Thanks crystal, I'll just start at 10 minutes and keep an eye on it after that. I'm even more impressed that you made it in the toaster oven! I've only used a toaster oven to make toast. :-)
