  • 175 grams sweet potato or mung bean vermicelli
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 6 cloves garlic - minced
  • 1 onion - finely chopped
  • 2 cups carrots - thinly sliced
  • 1 red bellpepper - seeded and sliced into thin strips
  • 9 shiitake mushrooms - sliced into thin strips
  • 12 oz fresh baby spinach
  • 1 cup green onion - chopped on the bias(45 degree angle)
  • sesame seeds - for garnish
  • gochujang - or sriracha, for serving

For the Sauce


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Once boiling, add noodles and remove from heat. Cook noodles according to package instructions (mine took approximately 3 minutes). Do not overcook! Drain and rinse noodles with cold water to stop cooking. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl whisk together all the ingredients for the sauce, making sure sugar is completely dissolved. Set aside.
  • Heat a large wok or Dutch oven over medium high heat. Add oil. Once hot, add the onions to the pan and sauté for 2-3 minutes or until translucent. Add garlic and sauté for an additional minute, mixing frequently. Add the carrots to the onions and mix well. Allow carrots to cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently, before adding the mushrooms and bell pepper. Allow vegetables to cook tender, but still maintain a soft bite.
  • Add the spinach and cook until just wilted (you may need to do this in batches) before adding the sauce. Toss well to evenly coat vegetables in the sauce.
  • Remove from heat and gently mix the noodles with the vegetables**. Top with chopped scallions and sesame seeds, if desired.
  • For added heat mix with a small serving of Gochujang or Sriracha, if desired.


**If you find that the noodles have clumped and stuck together after cooling, simply rinse with warm water, drain and transfer them to the pot with the vegetables
