1 package saifun noodles.  They’re in the Asian section and look like whitish thread.  May also be called bean thread noodles or mung bean noodles.

2 cups green beans, chopped into bite-size pieces

1 T olive oil

2 cups shiitake mushrooms, sliced

1 inch piece of ginger, peeled & minced

1/3 cup-ish soy sauce (maybe more, I forgot to measure, as usual)

2-3 T sesame oil

crushed red pepper to taste

sesame seeds and chopped green onion and cilantro for garnish


Bring a pot of water to boil.  Break noodles apart and add to water.  Boil for 2 minutes then add the green beans.  Boil for another 2 min.  Beans will be al dente.  Drain the whole mess and set aside.

Heat olive oil in a pan over med/high heat.  Add shiitakes and sautee 3 min.  Add ginger and sautee 1-2 min.  Add soy sauce and allow it all to simmer for 2 minutes, stirring often to prevent ginger from burnng to the bottom.  Throw in beans, noodles and red pepper and mix it all together until noodles are coated.  Add more soy sauce if it’s too dry.  Top with green onions, cilantro and sesame seeds.

Super awesome fun time!
