  • 7 ounce dry sweet potato noodles
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2-3 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 5-6 fresh shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 sweet peppers (or 1 medium bell pepper), thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoons soy sauce
  • ½ tablespoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon sesame oil
Seasoning for noodles
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 – 1 ½ Sriracha sauce
  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • Fresh basil leaves
  1. Cook the potato noodles as indicated on the packaging, about 6-8 minutes. Drain the noodles, run them through cold water, and set aside for now.
  2. Prepare the garlic, onion, sweet peppers, and fresh shiitake mushrooms.
  3. Add a little bit of olive oil to a large skillet. Allow the oil to heat for a minute before adding minced garlic and onions. Cook these until they start to brown.
  4. Next, add the sweet peppers to the skillet. Cook until the sweet peppers become soft and tender to your liking. Drizzle a little soy sauce, honey, and sesame oil over the sweet peppers. Add mushrooms and cook until softened.
  5. Now, add the glass noodles to the skillet.
  6. In a medium bowl, whisk together soy sauce, honey, Sriracha sauce, and sesame oil. Pour the sauce over the glass noodles and toss to evenly combine all the ingredients. You want the sauce to evenly coat the noodles and vegetables.
  7. Serve the spicy Korean glass noodles with sweet peppers and shiitake mushrooms cold.
  8. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds and basil leaves, if desired.
