Japanese Style Noodles with Mushrooms & Sesame

This week I’m keeping it Japanese! In my other post I shared some tips to help you make your own avocado and mango makis, which make an excellent starter. And this dish with shirataki noodles and mushrooms is fantastic as a main course, so now you’re well equipped to host a Japanese dinner. 🙂 Japanese style noodlesI hope you love sesame because this bowl of goodness is packed with sesame flavour – I used both sesame oil and sesame seeds. Aside from the sesame and the brown shirataki noodles, I added three kinds of mushrooms ( any assortment of mushrooms will do, but if you’re not sure what to go with, try shiitake mushrooms ), spring onions, peanuts, and soy bean sprouts. Japanese style noodlesFor this recipe I used Yutaka sesame seeds and noodles ( the noodles come already cooked in squidgy bags; just add them to your stir-fry to for a couple of minutes and they’re all ready to enjoy! ).
