1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound mixed mushrooms, such as maitake, white beech, shiitake and white button
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 (13.5-ounce) cans coconut milk
1 (1-inch) piece ginger, peeled and sliced
1 (1-inch) piece lemongrass, halved lengthwise, hard outer skin removed and smashed with a heavy skillet
1 hot chile, halved (seeds removed, if desired)
2 cups chicken stock or broth
2 tablespoons fish sauce, to taste
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice, to taste
8 ounces ounces rice noodles, soaked in hot water according to package directions
1/4 cup cilantro leaves
1. Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high. Add mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 5 minutes; remove to a plate.
2. Raise heat to high. Add coconut milk, ginger, lemongrass and chiles to pan and cook, stirring, until coconut milk becomes very thick and begins to stick to the bottom of the pan, about 4 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, soak rice noodles according to package directions.
4. Stir in stock and cook 2 minutes or until warmed through. Stir in fish sauce and lime juice, then reserved mushrooms and their juices. Serve mushrooms in coconut broth over rice noodles.
