1 lb mixed Asian-type mushrooms, such as shiitake, oyster and/or enoki
¼ cup vegetable oil
12 oz. Japanese soba (buckwheat) noodles*
Asian hot sesame or chili oil to taste
Teriyaki sauce to taste
1 cup thinly sliced scallions, green parts only
• Sautée mushrooms in oil, as you boil the noodles in water. Drain them and add to mushrooms.
• Add sesame oil and teriyaki sauce to the pan and mix well. Plate it and sprinkle with scallions. Could be presented hot or cold.
(*) I use brown shirataki noodles, made from a plant, and available in Japanese grocery stores. They are extremely low in calorie, while they satisfy your craving for pasta.
A glass of Jamaican ginger beer (not ginger ale) would nicely complement it.
