Units Scale

Main ingredients:

  • 1 package udon noodles (4 servings) OR 1 pound noodles of choice (soba, rice noodles, or whatever noodles you can find)
  • 1-2 shallots thinly sliced
  • 2 packages mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1-2 Tbsp tamari/soy sauce/coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1-2 cloves minced garlic
  • Leaves from 3 sprigs of fresh thyme or 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1-2 cups miso broth (can sub for vegetable broth or coconut milk if in a bind. Can also make your own miso broth by adding a Tbsp or two of miso paste to warm vegetable broth, and stirring until dissolved)
  • 3-4 Tbsp coconut cream
  • Optional: small slice of vegan butter
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Neutral flavored oil (I use grapeseed for the high smoking point to avoid that “burned” flavor and smell)


  • Sesame seeds
  • Pine nuts
  • Fresh parsley


  1. Prepare noodles: Prep noodles according to package instructions – this step takes a while to boil water etc, so suggest starting it early.
  2. Sautee shallots: Add a splash of oil to a pan on medium heat, and sautee shallots for 1-2 mins.
  3. Add mushrooms: Add mushrooms and a pinch of salt to help them break down. Stir and let sautee for 3-5 mins or until mushrooms release juices.
  4. Add seasoning: Add tamari, sesame oil, and minced garlic. Let simmer for 1-2 mins.
  5. Deglaze: Add thyme, broth, and coconut cream. Stir to dissolve, and let simmer on low. Taste for seasoning (salt, pepper). If your noodles are a little behind schedule, cover to keep the liquids from evaporating too much. You want ALLLL the brothy goodness.
  6. Bring it together: When noodles are ready, add a small slice of butter to mushroom broth and stir until dissolved. Add strained noodles to the pan off of the heat, and mix.
  7. Serve: Serve noodles with broth, mushrooms, and garnishes. For style points, use chopsticks. Enjoy!
