Give me some noodles and I’ll use them up right away. They are so versatile as they can be dressed in numerous sauces from Thai curry sauce to Asian-inspired dressings. Throw on your favorite veggies and you got yourself a damn delicious meal!
Some thick Asian noodles tossed in a bit of rice vinegar, topped with seared oyster mushrooms, and sauteed veggies. All dressed in an uber creamy tahini sesame dressing. I am all over this!
If you’re not a mushroom fan then I would click out of this recipe asap. But if you ARE a mushroom fan then you will be drooling over this dish.
Small cremini mushrooms are finely diced, thrown in a hot pan with some sesame oil, seasoned with a bit of salt, and sauteed until golden brown and glistening. Alongside are some seared oyster mushrooms with crispy edges and only seasoned with a bit of salt and sesame…because honestly, that is all these babies need to get them super tasty.
This recipe is…
- Super easy
- Salty w/ a touch of sweetness
- Healthy, but oh so flavorful
Sesame Mushroom Noodle Bowl
Thick Asian noodles topped with sauteed veggies and seared oyster mushrooms. Paired with a creamy sesame tahini dressing.
- 1/4 head red cabbage, thinly sliced
- 1 carrot sliced into ribbons
- 1 small head of broccoli, cut into florets
- 1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
- 1/4 thinly sliced white onion
- 1 1/2 cups diced shiitake mushrooms
- 4 oyster mushrooms
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 12 oz. noodles
- 1 tsp rice vinegar
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1/4 cup tahini
- Juice from 1/2 lime
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp organic cane sugar
- 1 tbsp water
- Sliced green onions
- sesame seeds
- lime wedges
Heat a large skillet over medium-high with a tsp of sesame oil. Add onions and garlic and saute for 2-3 min. or until translucent & light golden brown. Add in the diced shiitake mushrooms. Stirring occasionally, cook until some moisture has left the mushrooms and they are golden brown.
Push the mushrooms over to one side of the pan and add a dash of sesame oil to the other side. Press down the oyster mushrooms into the pan so as much surface area is exposed to the heat. Sear on both sides until golden brown. Transfer both mushrooms to a plate and set aside.
Steam the broccoli and cabbage in the microwave or on the stove top. Set aside. Prepare the dressing by whisking together all the ingredients until creamy. Add more water if needed to get a slightly runny consistency.
If noodles are dry, cook them according to pkg directions. In my case they were fresh so I just ran them under hot water. Cool noodles and transfer to a large bowl and toss with 1 tsp of rice vinegar and 1/2 tsp salt.
Assemble by adding noodles to the bowl. Top with steamed cabbage and broccoli as well as raw carrot ribbons. Add some shiitake and seared oyster mushrooms. Drizzle with tahini dressing. (Optional, highly recommended) garnish with sliced green onions, a sprinkle of sesame seeds, and a lime wedge.
