Let's make a warm pan of saucy teriyaki noodles with vegetables!
This dish is a great weeknight choice because it only takes 30 minutes from start to finish.
So it is a great option for both lunch or dinner.
This recipe is another way to use the delicious homemade Asian-style Teriyaki Sauce (which we also enjoy in this Teriyaki Vegetable Stir Fry and Teriyaki Baked Tofu).
Ingredients for Teriyaki Noodles
For the noodle and vegetable portion, you will need:
- Noodles of choice: Use gluten-free if desired. I like ramen noodles best with this recipe, but you can use whole wheat spaghetti, soba, Udon noodles, rice noodles, buckwheat noodles, etc. (I use Lotus Foods brown rice + millet ramen.)
- Broccoli: I use fresh for best flavor.
- Mushrooms: Any of your favorite varieties will work. Most often I use cremini, but you can use white button, shiitake mushrooms, portobello, etc.
- Green onion (scallion): Or you can substitute thinly sliced yellow onion or red onion for a stronger flavor.
Ingredients for Sauce
For the sweet and savory homemade teriyaki sauce recipe you will need:
- Tamari: Or substitute soy sauce or coconut aminos. Be sure to use low sodium if desired.
- Pure maple syrup: I use this for a refined sugar-free option, but brown sugar also works very well.
- Vegetable broth: Or simply substitute water.
- Rice vinegar: I use unseasoned. (Seasoned rice vinegar contains added sugar and salt.)
- Fresh garlic cloves
- Fresh ginger
- Cornstarch: This is used to thicken the sauce, so substitute with a tablespoon of other thickener if desired.
Note: Mirin, a sweet Japanese rice wine, is also often included in teriyaki sauce. So feel free to use that instead of rice vinegar if you wish.
Vegetables: Sauté and include other veggies in this dish such as bell peppers, snow peas, snap peas, asparagus, chopped greens, water chestnuts, shredded cabbage, bok choy, etc. For a rough estimation, I typically use about 6-7 cups raw vegetables for this recipe.
Make it spicy: Add crushed red pepper flakes, hot sauce, or sriracha to taste before serving.
Protein: Feel free to pair this teriyaki noodle bowl with more protein like your favorite seasoned tofu, tempeh, or vegan chicken.
Enjoy this dish is, or garnish the bowl your favorite toppings. A few ideas include:
- Sesame seeds
- Mung bean sprouts
- Fresh cilantro
- Black pepper
- Peanuts, slivered almonds, or cashews for crunch
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. We find they keep well in the fridge for about 3-4 days. Simply reheat in the microwave when you are ready to enjoy.
