Hey there, this is Richa from My Food Story and we are huge fans of everything garlic, and these garlic mushroom noodles are the perfect celebration of that! This is such an easy recipe that you’ll be making it again and again. We had this at our favourite chinese restaurant the other day and we couldn’t believe how good this way. I managed to get the recipe out of the chef and when I looked at the list of ingredients and how to make it, my jaw dropped to the floor.

The entire magic is really in the garlic. You need about 8 cloves which seems like a lot but it isn’t. The garlic is stir fried in hot oil till it becomes golden brown but is just a little shy of being burnt. The oil is infused with garlic and that crispy garlic brings a flavour that’s hard to beat.

Like any Asian cooking, the key is to cook everything fast on a high flame. So it’s important that you have your mushrooms cut, and noodles boiled because the rest will only take you ten minutes to finish.

These garlic mushroom noodles are kid friendly because my niece approves. They aren’t spicy, just have a ton of flavour and kids love noodles, don’t they. I also like them cold which sounds weird but for some reason, these noodles taste even better the next day. Probably because the flavours have really seeped in.

Find mushrooms that are easily available. Button mushrooms work well here but if you are feeling fancy, you can add an assortment of mushrooms to this recipe to amp things up.

    I did not have roasted sesame oil or sesame oil so I used olive oil. It was really delicious but it was not really special. What I am trying to say is that it was kind of okay not spectacular. But I am going to wait and eat it after one day. I will post tomorrow.

  2. I used portobellos, and fresh and dried shiitakes. I sautéed the mushrooms with shaoxing wine and added ginger and white pepper. I also drizzled with Chinese black vinegar. Tasted great!

  3. 5 pounds of egg noodles? How many does this recipe feed? Sounds delish but there are only two of us. Also, are these Chinese egg noodles? They don’t look like the flat egg noodles. Love your blog…and your recipes!

    1. Egg noodles are the thick beach wave noodles ;). Before adding the noodles you can take some of the sauce out and freeze or keep for later for a second meal and cut the noodles down to 2 pounds or what you and your spouse will eat.
