Garlic Mushroom Noodles


Time is flying… I will be a mom of second grader in few months and honestly I am still in disbelief. It feels like yesterday when I held him first time in my arms, the very first time I became a mom, the very first time I saw a little angel looking at me and the best part he was all mine. And now just in few weeks he will be a young second grader; a little handsome boy with loads of ideas and opinions, turning slowly into an independent human being. Each and every achievement of his makes me a happy proud mom and brings tears of joy in my eyes… My baby is growing fast!



Anyways with so much happening in these last few weeks of school I have been really busy with volunteering and have been juggling too many things. So lately I have been making loads of noodles recipes for dinner. They are not only fun and delicious but also come together really fast. Today I am sharing with you one of my favorite noodles recipe; “Garlic Mushroom Noodles”. This recipe is really a very delicious and easy one. Mushroom and garlic add wonderful flavor to the noodles. If you want you can add some chicken or shrimps to the recipe too. I like my noodles with little kick and add whole dried chili, leave out if you are not a spicy food lover.


So give this recipe a try next time you crave some Asian style noodle goodness and let me know how you find this recipe. Enjoy your rest of the week and stay safe.

Garlic Mushroom Noodles

Yield: Serves 4


  • 8 ounces Asian style noodles (spaghetti noodles)
  • 4 tablespoons oil
  • 4 cups mushrooms (sliced)
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 4-6 dried red chilies whole (optional)
  • Seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine or dry sherry (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper powder
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Topping
  • ½ cup scallion chopped


  1. Cook the noodles according to the direction on the packet, rinse well with cold water, drain and keep aside.
  2. In a bowl mix the seasoning ingredients, keep aside.
  3. Heat a large wok/skillet on high and add 2 tablespoons of oil. Once the oil is hot and shimmering add the sliced mushrooms and stir-fry them till they start to get little brown. Don’t crowd the wok/skillet and if needed do it in batches.
  4. Once the mushrooms are done, take them out on a plate. Heat the remaining oil on high again and add the garlic and dried chilies. Stir-fry them for 30 seconds.
  5. Add the cooked mushrooms back to the wok and stir-fry with garlic for 1 minute or two. Now add the seasoning and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. Finally add the cooked noodles to the wok, toss well to get all the noodles well coated with the seasoning.
  6. Check for the seasoning if needed add some salt.
  7. Top with chopped scallion, Serve Hot!

    Time is marching too fast for me too, Reem. My little one is going to turn two in couple of months and I am at disbelief. Love the photos and the flavors of the noodles.

    Yes, time does fly fast and I feel that seeing my nieces growing up so fast, I can only imagine what you would be feeling.

    Beautiful pictures, Reem! And noodles look delicious. I know, I cannot believe it. My son’s teacher said we have just 21 more days of being the first grade. I was like WHAT? When did that happen?! Didn’t he just start going to elementary school… I’ve been making noodle dishes too. I think we have very similar life me in NorCal and you in SoCal… :)

    • Reem May 8, 2013, 8:59 pm

      I know I always relate to everything you say…. we both do have very similar lifes…
