The time-honored technique of stir-frying is a quick way to heighten and seal in the varied and delicious flavors of a dish. Here, we’re stir-frying Japanese ingredients like umami-packed shiitake mushrooms and fresh udon noodles (a long and chewy variety) with a savory soy sauce. Crisp, seasonal asparagus and a dusting of vibrant spices complete this elegant dish.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the mushroom stems; thinly slice the caps. Peel and mince the garlic and ginger. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on an angle, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Snap off and discard the tough, woody ends of the asparagus; thinly slice the asparagus on an angle, leaving the pointed tips intact.

Brown the mushrooms:
2 Brown the mushrooms:

In a large, high-sided pan (or pot), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 minutes, or until browned and softened; season with salt and pepper.

Make the sauce:
3 Make the sauce:

While the mushrooms brown, in a bowl, combine the cornstarch, soy glaze, vinegar and ½ cup of water; whisk until smooth.

Add the vegetables:
4 Add the vegetables:

Add the garlic, ginger, white bottoms of the scallions and asparagus to the pan of mushrooms; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until fragrant and the asparagus is bright green.

Add the noodles & sauce:
5 Add the noodles & sauce:

While the vegetables cook, carefully separate the noodles with your hands. Add the noodles and sauce (whisking just before adding) to the pan of vegetables; cook, stirring vigorously to coat the noodles, 2 to 3 minutes, or until thoroughly combined and the sauce has thickened. (If the sauce seems dry, gradually add up to ¼ cup of water to achieve your desired consistency.) Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.

6 Plate your dish:

Divide the finished noodles between 2 dishes. Garnish with the green tops of the scallions and as much of the spice blend as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Enjoy!
