Sweet & Spicy Udon Noodles with Shiitake Mushrooms & Baby Bok Choy

Prep Time 20 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Servings 4


  • 14.2 oz package of udon noodles
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 medium shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 8 oz shittake mushrooms sliced
  • 1 baby bok choy, chopped
  • 2 tbsp oil

To make the sauce, combine the following ingredients in a bowl and set aside:

  • 2 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 1 tbsp sweet thai chili sauce
  • 1 tbsp gochujang
  • 1 tsp gochugaru or crushed red chili flakes
  • 1 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil


  • Cook or prepare the noodles according to package directions. I had udon noodles that did not require boiling but I did rinse them with hot water to simply help loosen them up. Follow the directions for whichever type of noodles you decide to use.
  • Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a large wok or pot over medium high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the shallots and stir until they become soft.
  • Next, add the mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms are for just about tender but not too soft. Reduce the heat to medium/low, add the garlic, ginger, bok choy, and stir until garlic is fragrant and bok choy starts to slightly wilt.
  • Add the noodles, sauce, sesame seeds and stir until well combined and noodles are heated through.
  • Serve hot and fresh!!
