I modified this recipe by briefly boiling the mu-err mushrooms (black fungus) to ensure they were tender. I really liked this salad, in part because I love both star anise and mu-err mushrooms.

This spicy carrot salad is pretty good, and a change from most salads I have eaten.
Some recipes just don’t turn out. This one, which I modified by using black soybean pasta to make it vegan, was tasted by three people, and we would all describe it as Bad – I will never make this again. We all like rhubarb, and I usually like Ottolenghi’s recipes, but this dish disappointed.
This is quite tasty and I plan to make it again. I used whole wheat noodles and replaced some of the sugar with stevia for a little extra nutrition. I also used some ground chilli – about one teaspoon – instead of chilli oil.
I made fresh spring rolls with lettuce, mint, basil, bean sprouts, corn, carrot, sweet pepper, cucumber and blanched snow peas wrapped in rice paper.
To accompany it I made a sauce of peanuts, coconut, olive oil, red pepper flakes, soy sauce, garlic, lime, lemon juice, maple sugar, salt and shallot.
