  • 5 oz. ramen noodles* (or spaghetti, rice noodles, etc.)
  • 6 oz. shiitake mushrooms
  • 2-3 green onions
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. sesame seeds (optional)

For the sauce:

  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 Tbsp. hoisin sauce
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. tamari or soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh ginger, grated (optional, but recommended)


  • Cook noodles according to package instructions, leaving al dente (slightly firm, not mushy).
  • Make the sauce: Combine all sauce ingredients in a bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.
  • Gently wipe shiitake mushrooms clean. Remove any hard stems, then halve or slice.
  • In a large skillet or pan over medium-high heat, sauté shiitake mushrooms for 6-7 minutes. (I use 2 Tbsp. water/broth for no-oil sauté method, adding more as needed.)
  • Meanwhile, slice green onions and mince garlic.
  • When mushrooms are tender, add green onions and garlic. Stir and sauté for 1-2 minutes.
  • Lower heat to medium-low. Add sauce and cooked noodles. Stir well to combine and heat for 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle on sesame seeds (if using).


*Noodles: I use Lotus Foods brown rice & millet ramen noodles. (Two ramen cakes is about 5 oz.)
For gluten-free: Use gluten-free noodles, tamari, and GF hoisin sauce. I use San-J brand gluten-free hoisin.
Nuts addition: Add peanuts, cashews, or sliced or slivered almonds for crunch if desired.
