Mushroom Sesame Noodles

Lou Kostura


I love the taste of toasted sesame oil and I came up with this cold buckwheat noodle dish. Actually you can serve hot or cold, I prefer cold. A bit of Asian flair, simple to make and really healthy. Not what you would really call this, a pasta salad? side dish, whatever you choose its tasty

How to Make Mushroom Sesame Noodles


  1. heat skillet add vegetable oil, garlic, grated ginger, and dried chili if you choose. saute on med.hi heat for 3-4 minutes until fragrant.
  2. add mushrooms, ginger sherry, teriyaki, dark soy, cook on medium heat until all liquid is absorbed
  3. cook soba noodles per package instructions, mine are 4 minutes at a rolling boil drain and rinse
  4. put in a large bowl, add in mushroom mixture, add toasted sesame oil, and a little additional teriyaki. stir well. serve hot or cold
  5. *note: I make my own ginger sherry by buying a large piece of ginger root, peel, slice into 1/4 inch thick coins and add to a jar, fill with sherry and leave in refrigerator. Ginger will keep for a long time this way and when you want to use a little sherry just remember to top the bottle off again
