EASY KOREAN NOODLES RECIPE

One of my favorite things to make is Asian inspired noodle dishes.

I love rotating between today’s Easy Korean Noodles Recipe, Asian Chicken Noodle Soup, Spicy Asian Chicken Soup and this Easy Chicken Ramen Noodle Stir Fry.

It is fun to make some of your favorites you might eat at a restaurant at home. One I often will recreate at home is this Spicy Thai Basil Chicken Stir-Fry.

There is something about the sauce in today’s Easy Korean Noodles Recipe that I just love. It is a nice balance between sweet and savory. 

If you like spice you can add in Sriracha or gochujang {Korean Chili paste} to add some heat. 

This recipe is vegetarian and mixes mushrooms with kale and rice noodles.

You can easily add in additional vegetables, greens and use any of your favorite noodles.

This dish is very customizable, which I love!

MUSHROOMS: This dish features mushrooms. You can use your favorite variety of mushroom, any will work nicely. 

NOODLES: This noodle recipe uses rice noodles. I love the texture of these noodles mixed with the sauce!

    2. While the noodles cook melt the butter and sesame oil in a large pan over medium-high heat.
    3. Add the mushrooms and cook, without moving for 5 minutes. Toss and cook for 3 more minutes or until caramelized.

Notes

  • You can use tamari sauce instead of soy sauce.
  • The secret is to cook the mushrooms until caramelized, that’s what gives this dish all the flavor! To caramelize the mushrooms cook them without stirring or moving around.
  • Feel free to add some chili flakes if you want to bring the heat on or some Teriyaki sauce to make them slightly sweeter.
