This became our go-to recipe whenever we don't feel like cooking but don't want to order take out, cause we want a healthy meal

Nathalie Vanbrabant - May 14, 2024, 9:47 p.m.

Zeer lekker! So simple, yet so good!

Loh - April 18, 2024, 8:32 a.m.

What would be a good substitute for mushrooms? I really don’t like them but want to give this a try since the rest sounds quite tempting

PUL Team - April 19, 2024, 7:09 a.m.

Hey Loh, you can try substituting the mushrooms with chopped bell peppers for a similar texture. We also like to add grated carrots or shredded cabbage to our noodle dishes. They'll soak up the flavours well and add a nice crunch. ☺️

Ashley Labadie - March 31, 2024, 9:09 p.m.

Delicious quick and easy lunch. Amazing.

Helen Franziska - March 29, 2024, 9:46 p.m.

amazing 10/10 🤩 we used mixes asian mushrooms (king oyster, shimeji and enoki) instead of the shiitake mushrooms and it turned out perfect !

Marissa - March 15, 2024, 9:32 a.m.

Due to allergies, I omitted certain ingredients and replaced them with others but I’m constantly making this in different ways and loving it! 5-star recipe.

PUL Team - March 15, 2024, 4:50 p.m.

Oh we’re so thrilled to hear this, Marissa - thank you! 😊

Ritchel - March 15, 2024, 12:12 a.m.

I didn’t have shiitake mushrooms so I substituted it for king mushrooms. It still tastes as good!

Zoran - March 13, 2024, 1:10 p.m.

:-) I had the half of all the ingredients needed, but still with that it was super delicious.
I took champignons, soja salt-reduced, chopped garlic and green onions.
Great recipy! Next time I'll be more organized.

John - Feb. 25, 2024, midnight

So good! I usually hate mushrooms but they were so good in this. Shiitake mushrooms were hard to find but they were so tasty. Will definitely make this instead of takeout any day!

Marissa - March 15, 2024, 9:33 a.m.

Totally agree with you! Better than take-out—less greasy and no unknown ingredients.

Phillipa - Feb. 18, 2024, 9:42 p.m.

Thank you for something that is so quick but still has flavour and nutrition. As another user suggested I used some radish but I cooked them as they were going off. These mixed with some rolled dried tofu (not sure of the name but it's the long tubes of dried tofu from my local asian supermarket) worked a treat. I had to use dried shiitake mushrooms. Will definitely be making it again.

The prepare step on the app is brilliant! Thank you for making my cooking more organised.

PUL Team - Feb. 19, 2024, 12:49 a.m.

We’re beyond happy to hear this, Phillipa - what delicious twists to the recipe! Thank you for welcoming us into your culinary adventure 🫶✨

Andrea - Feb. 3, 2024, 6:08 p.m.

Another love at first bite of food. So far, every (!!) recipe has become a new favorite. Such a great addition to our menu. Thank you Sadia and the PUL team 💚🫶🍽️

PUL Team - Feb. 4, 2024, 3:49 a.m.

We're so thrilled to hear this, Andrea, thank you! 🥹

Niky - Feb. 1, 2024, 6:18 p.m.

Simple quick and delicious

Rike - Jan. 31, 2024, 10:17 p.m.

Very delicious! We changed the sauce to the mein chow sauce. We didnt have the mushroom sauce... :) It wasso so good!

PUL Team - Feb. 1, 2024, 12:30 a.m.

Mmm a delicious idea, Rike! Thank you 🙂

Naomi - Jan. 28, 2024, 9:10 p.m.

Yummy 🤤

Danielle - Jan. 23, 2024, 7:41 p.m.

Lovely and you can change the sauce to keep it varied

Ashley - Jan. 22, 2024, 9:02 p.m.

So good and so easy, I will be bookmarking this to make again! I recommend serving this dish with a fresh element, maybe some pickled turnip or radish would be extra delicious :)

Alex - Jan. 18, 2024, 6:14 p.m.

Very creamy and tasty. Love it! Will be doing again

Claire White - Jan. 10, 2024, 12:24 a.m.

I added some sweet chili sauce because the dish felt a little unbalanced. Next time, I'd defrost the edamame and measure out all the sauce things ahead of time so the noodles wouldn't get as soggy/overcooked as mine did.

Aleksandra - Jan. 4, 2024, 4:17 p.m.

Yummy! Instead of edamame I added green peas. Still delicious 😊

Caroline - Jan. 2, 2024, 1:06 p.m.

I love this recipe, so delicious ! 😋🫶🏼

Catrina - Dec. 30, 2023, 10:12 a.m.

Absolutely delish!!! And so quick to make! I know this is going to be a favourite of mine for a long time! :D

Nicole Mostofa - Dec. 7, 2023, 10:31 p.m.

Easy and quick.
I used white mushrooms.

Mareike - Nov. 16, 2023, 12:21 p.m.

Probably my favorite recipe so far! So quick and SOOOO delicious 🤤
I‘ve already made it twice, and will probably make it many more times 😃

Nikisha - Nov. 10, 2023, 6:13 a.m.

I am not a mushroom fan but this recipe seemed easy and frankly in the past 6 weeks I've made it twice because it was just that easy and so delicious.
I just love coming on your website for recipe inspirations and because the cuisines are from around the world I am able to try them all, even if it's with a twist.

PUL Team - Nov. 10, 2023, 4:14 p.m.

Oh, Nikisha, we're so happy to hear - thank you! Can't wait to continue our culinary journey together 🤗

Astrid - Oct. 13, 2023, 6:42 p.m.

Great recipe when you don't feel like cooking! Easy, speedy and delicious <3 For the spicy lovers add a little sriracha at the end.

Chrysiida - Oct. 13, 2023, 3:01 p.m.

Shiitake mushrooms were too expensive to buy where I live so I used another kind, but the recipe came out delicious anyway! It's the second recipe I am trying from the app and I will be definitely making it again in the future!

PUL Team - Oct. 13, 2023, 10:02 p.m.

Thanks for sharing your experience with the noodles, Chrysiida! We hope you enjoy the rest of the recipes on the app. We lots of more budget-friendly recipes coming 🤗

Shiralee - Oct. 12, 2023, 9:11 p.m.

This was so easy and delicious!

Louise - Oct. 4, 2023, 9:52 p.m.

It was quick and tasty. I will definitely make this again.

Silke Gabrielle - Oct. 3, 2023, 5:30 p.m.

This was easy to make and delicious.

Valerie - Sept. 28, 2023, 4:39 p.m.

So quick, easy, and packed with flavor! I had to improvise on the mushroom stir fry sauce with a Thai chili sauce and dash of black vinegar. Delicious!

Mar - Sept. 11, 2023, 6:28 p.m.

We all loved it. Did use dried noodles instead of wok ready. Added other veggies to bulk it out.

Martyn Bailey - Aug. 28, 2023, 8:42 p.m.

Tried this for tea, found mushroom stir fry sauce at local Asian Supermarket. Very easy to make but very tasty and enough for two nights 😁

James - Aug. 25, 2023, 12:38 p.m.

I adored this recipe but my udon noodles dont take on as much of that lovely colour- is there a particular variety or brand you prefer to use?

PUL Team - Aug. 26, 2023, 3:59 a.m.

Hey James, we get our udon noodles from our local Asian supermarket, but perhaps you mean the colour of the final dish? If so, using using dark soy sauce (rather than regular soy sauce) is what helps to contribute to the deep colour of the final dish. I hope this helps for now 😊

carolina - Aug. 20, 2023, 11:55 p.m.

super yummy and easy recipe! i’m glad i gave this one a try, won’t be the last time i make it :D

delia munteanu - Aug. 20, 2023, 2:58 p.m.

Swapped the mushroom sauce with teriyaki bc I didn’t find it in the store and the dark soy sauce for kecap manis. But still turned out tasty!!

PUL Team - Aug. 20, 2023, 9:25 p.m.

Thanks for sharing the substitutions, Delia! We're glad the noodles were enjoyed 😃

JJ - Aug. 14, 2023, 6:52 p.m.

freaking delicious!! Comforting and satisfies the cravings for noodles… PLUS it’s ready in 10 mins.
Added a bit of chili sauce to make it gold. ❤️

PUL Team - Aug. 14, 2023, 6:54 p.m.

Woohoo! We're so happy the noodles are being enjoyed, JJ,, thank you 😊

McKayla - Aug. 8, 2023, 9:19 p.m.

I didn’t have the mushroom stir fry sauce, but I substituted it for something I have at home and it came out delicious. My toddler likes it too! 🥰

kar - July 28, 2023, 7:48 p.m.

So quick and easy! Love this recipe!

Sarah Aubin - July 25, 2023, 9:32 p.m.

I did it with oyster sauce and spaghettini, and it was really good. Thank you PUL Team my lunch break in 10 mn 🙏🏽

Diana-Alexandra Onutu - July 23, 2023, 7:28 p.m.


parnian ajami - July 23, 2023, 1:46 p.m.

Super easy and delicious!

Anika Zlateva - July 21, 2023, 10:37 p.m.

Very delicious! I skipped the green onions though.

Evelyn - July 19, 2023, 3:21 a.m.

I am so so obsessed with this recipe!! Somehow even “quick” recipes always end up taking me much longer than they’re supposed to (maybe I’m slow at chopping?) but this one is actually lightning fast to make! I’ve made it twice already and I’m always surprised by how quickly it comes together and how flavourful it is despite the minimal ingredients! Like others have mentioned I wasn’t able to find mushroom stir-fry sauce where I live so I just used a generic one. I also subbed in portobello mushrooms because my grocery store didn’t have shiitakes. I scaled the seasonings up to 1.5tbsp soy sauce, 2.5tbsp stir fry sauce, and 3/4tsp garlic powder, and used twice the vegan butter. This has definitely become an instant staple for me, thank you so much!! ❤️

PUL Team - July 22, 2023, 3:08 a.m.

Yayyy we're so thrilled to hear, Evelyn, thank YOU! In case it helps, it took us a while to speed up our chopping 😜

Sharon Vos - July 18, 2023, 10:52 p.m.

Definitely a keeper! One portion was a bit too small for my man, for me it was perfect.

Leisa - July 16, 2023, 10:58 a.m.

So quick and simple but so delicious.

I am adding this to the meals I make while camping

Andrea Bryant - July 16, 2023, 12:39 a.m.

Delicious and filling. Both servings were for me so I was glad 😊 I went back to the store to get more mushrooms so I can make it again the next day. I did take a few liberties because I am not vegan but I love the meatless option. I could find the mushroom stir fry sauce so I chose a sesame ginger shoyu sauce. I cleaned my bowl. ❤️❤️

PUL Team - July 17, 2023, 5:08 p.m.

Hey Andrea, aw sesame ginger shoyu sauce sounds incredible 😍 so glad it was enjoyed!

Elena - July 12, 2023, 7:26 p.m.

Very straightforward, and a perfect two person portion (two women, might not be enough for men). Will definitely become a work week staple

Grace - July 12, 2023, 12:52 a.m.

So good! Added peppers and used stir-fry sauce…yum!

Katia - July 11, 2023, 7:35 a.m.

Tasty! I didn’t have the mushroom stir fry sauce so I experimented. Instead of adding the soy sauce and stir fry sauce, I used the whole sauce mix recipe from one of my favorite recipes by pickuplimes- the spicy garlic tofu dish- and I think it worked out pretty well.

PUL Team - July 14, 2023, 7:50 a.m.

Thank you for taking the time to share your modifications, Katia ☺️

Lisa - July 9, 2023, 7:26 p.m.

This is just lovely and so quick to make. I discovered mushroom stir fry sauce a while ago and am always happy to find new recipes using it. I used button mushrooms instead of the shiitake and had the noodles with a side salad. Delish!!

PUL Team - July 12, 2023, 7:09 a.m.

So happy to hear, Lisa! If you enjoy mushroom stir fry sauce, might we suggest our Quick Soft Tofu Stew (…) or Super Quick Shoyu Ramen -( 😜

anna - July 7, 2023, 12:55 a.m.

i used bulgogi sauce instead of the mushroom sauce and it was so delicious!

Carla Poot - July 6, 2023, 8:16 p.m.

Charlie Anne - July 6, 2023, 8:09 p.m.

Is there a swap for, or a homemade version of the Mushroom Stir Fry sauce?

PUL Team - July 8, 2023, 7:19 p.m.

Hey Charlie, yes! Any Asian-inspired sauce can work. We've heard several positive reviews with different sauces including:
- teriyaki sauce
- miso sauce
- stir-fry sauce
- a mix of hoisin and soy sauce with garlic and sweetener added
- bulgogi sauce

Just be sure to give the dish a taste and adjust as needed 🤗

What a success 🤗 happy I went for this recipe

Sara - July 2, 2023, 10:17 p.m.

I did not have mushroom stir fry sauce, but I made it with a sauce pulled from a separate recipe that had used gochujang, maple syrup, vinegar, and soy sauce as its components. Delicious!

Carol - July 2, 2023, 3:24 p.m.

Lovely recipe! So quick and easy

Silvia Triches - July 2, 2023, 1:22 p.m.

Easy, quick and delicious! I added a bit of gochujang to the sauce and oh my, I can eat it on repeat!!!

Jana - July 1, 2023, 9:01 p.m.

I love the taste and how quick and easy it is to make! :D I used brown champignon because I didn't know where to buy shiitake and forgot to buy spring onions but still it tasted amazing. Also I'm glad I've been introduced to a new sauce - the black bean garlic paste.

PUL Team - July 4, 2023, 2:17 a.m.

So happy to hear, Jana, thank you 🤗

Caroline - July 1, 2023, 1:25 p.m.

Such an easy, quick weeknight meal. I couldn’t find mushroom sauce at my grocery, so I mixed up a garlic, honey, hoisin, and soy sauce mixture. Delish!
