Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Asian
Servings: 3


  • 4 oz edamame noodles
  • ½ white or yellow onion sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 carrots julienned
  • 1 bell pepper sliced
  • 1 zucchini julienned
  • 6 dried shiitake rehydrated and sliced (or use fresh)
  • toasted sesame seeds to garnish



  • Cook edamame noodles according to package directions.
  • Mix together sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
  • Add a splash of water or oil to a large pan or wok over medium heat. Add onion and sauté for a few minutes until translucent and softened. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Add carrots and bell pepper and cook one minute, adding another splash of water as needed to prevent sticking to the pan. Add zucchini (and shiitake if using fresh ones) and cook for a few more minutes until all the veggies are tender.
  • If using dried & rehydrated shiitake, add them now along with the edamame noodles and the sauce. Stir to combine and coat all the ingredients with the sauce. Turn off heat and garnish with sesame seeds as desired.


*Gochujang often contains wheat, so check the ingredients before purchasing if you are gluten-free. I often use this gochujang that is vegan and gluten-free.
