Recipe: Exotic Mushroom & Cashew Sweet Chilli Noodles

Exotic Mushrooms & Sweet Chilli Noodles

20 Min Meals | Vegetarian & VeganThese noodles are incredibly quick and easy to make, and taste fantastic too. Just the sort of dinner we’ve been eating a lot of since baby #2 arrived six weeks ago. I’m quickly re-learning the art of one-handed cooking, and eating a meal whilst it is still hot with both a knife and fork seems a dim and distant memory!

Variety packs of fresh ‘exotic’ or ‘speciality’ mushrooms are now sold in most supermarkets, or you can use a mixture of shiitake, oyster, enoki and any other exotic varieties you can get hold of. They aren’t the cheapest mushrooms around, but the combination of textures and flavours are worth it.

Sweet chilli sauce really isn’t particularly spicy, so if you want to turn up the heat a little, add a thinly sliced red chilli to the pan with the mushrooms.

Recipe type: Main
Serves: Serves 2
Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp rapeseed or sunflower oil
  • 200g mixed ‘exotic’ mushrooms (or a mix of oyster and shiitake)
  • 4 spring onions
  • 3 tbsp cashew nuts
  • 150g (3 nests) wholewheat noodles (check they are egg-free)
  • 3 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 150ml water
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Halve or quarter any large mushrooms, leaving smaller ones whole, and add to the pan. Trim and slice the spring onions and add to the pan, along with the cashew nuts.
  2. Fill a saucepan with boiling water, and add the noodles. Simmer for 5-6 minutes until just cooked through. Drain and set aside.
  3. In a mug or small bowl, mix the chilli sauce, soy sauce and water to a smooth sauce. When the mushrooms are cooked and cashews are golden brown, tip the sauce into the frying pan, and when it is bubbling, add the noodles. Stir to combine, then serve immediately.

  1. Quick noodle recipes are my midweek meal saviour – and I love anything with mushrooms and chilli sauce!

  2. Who needs takeaway when you can make meals like this at home. We love using as many different mushrooms as we can in our meals.

  3. What a perfect supper that is quick and easy to make for new mothers. Congratulations with your latest addition to the family. Get used to people being too afraid to say “gay” and instead turn him into a girl, called Gabrielle. 😉

  4. Anything that has sweet chilli in gets my vote any day! I love it and this meal looks delicious. Thank you for sharing with #CookBlogShare x
