Fresh Chinese Noodles with Mixed Mushrooms and Spinach

Mushroom varieties

You will find fresh Chinese noodles in cellophane-wrapped packages in well-stocked supermarkets, shelved near tofu products, as well as in natural foods stores.

Serves: 4 to 6

  • 12 ounces fresh Chinese noodles (or substitute spaghetti,
    linguine, or udon noodles)
  • 1 tablespoon neutral vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
  • 1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound mixed fresh mushrooms (use white mushrooms
    plus a small amount each of fresh shiitake, cremini,
    and/or any other variety of your choice)
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine or vegetable stock
  • 8 to 10 ounces fresh spinach, baby spinach, or Asian greens,
    well rinsed, stemmed stemmed, and coarsely chopped
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium natural soy sauce or tamari, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Cook the noodles in plenty of rapidly simmering water until al dente, then drain.

Meanwhile, heat the oils in a wok or stir-fry pan. Add the garlic and sauté over low heat for a minute or so. Add the mushrooms and wine or stock. Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until done to taste, about 5 to 8 minutes.

Add the spinach and cook, covered, just until the spinach is wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the noodles, then season with soy sauce and pepper. Serve at once.
