Five Spice Mushrooms with Udon Noodles

This quick and easy vegetarian meal is packed with a satisfying flavor combination of meaty mushrooms, spices and chewy noodles.

Yields: 4

Serving size: 1 cup pasta with 1 cup vegetables

Ingredients

1 8 oz. package white or crimini mushrooms, sliced
½ lb. fresh asparagus, cut into 1” pieces
1 8 oz. package dried udon noodles
5 cups of water
2 T cooking oil
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
½ t five-spice powder
Pinch of salt
1/3 cup tamari or soy sauce
¼ cup honey
½ tsp cayenne pepper
¾ tsp five spice powder

Directions

Whisk the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside.  Cook the udon noodles according to package instructions, drain and set aside (you might want to drizzle a small amount of oil on the noodles to prevent them from sticking).

While the noodles are cooking, bring the 5 cups of water to a rolling boil and add the asparagus.  Blanche them for no more than 45 seconds, then remove with a slotted spoon and set aside in a small bowl.

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat.  Add the garlic and cook until golden brown and fragrant.  Next add the mushrooms, five-spice powder and salt, and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes.  Add the blanched asparagus and cook for another 2-3 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.

Finally, add the noodles & prepared sauce to the vegetables and mix well.  Serve immediately and enjoy!
