quick healthy chinese (part 2): slippery wood ear mushrooms with cilantro

this is part II of quick and healthy chinese!  again i like to make these small sides together to put together a meal that can be prepped ahead of time and eaten straight from the fridge.  i usually make rice, buckwheat noodles or sweet potato noodles to go with them all.
