FOR THE STIR FRY
3-4 blocks of ramen noodles (flavor packets discarded) *see notes below
5 oz golden oak shitake mushrooms
8 oz sugar snap peas
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 1/2 cups carrots, sliced into strips (around 3 – 4 medium carrots)
1 small bunch of green onions, diced
1/8 cup fresh ginger, finely diced or minced
1/4 cup fresh garlic, finely diced or minced
FOR THE STIR FRY SAUCE
One batch of 3 ingredient stir fry sauce
To a large nonstick skillet or jumbo cooker, add the mushrooms, bell pepper, carrots, green onion, ginger, and garlic
Add 2 tablespoons of sesame oil
Cook the vegetables over medium high heat for around 20 – 25 minutes, until vegetables are cooked but not mushy. Add more sesame oil if necessary to avoid sticking (I added an additional tablespoon half way through cooking)
Boil the water for your ramen noodles
In the last five minutes, add in the sugar snap peas
Once sugar snap peas go in, you should be adding your ramen noodles to the boiling water. Follow package instructions to cook, most only take 2 – 4 minutes
Make a batch of the stir fry sauce and have it ready to use
Once ramen noodles noodles are cooked, drain them and add to the vegetables in the skillet
Pour on the stir fry sauce and cook 1 – 3 minutes, until everything is coated in sauce
Serve and enjoy!
I used organic ramen noodles which were 2.1 oz per box, making the total oz for 4 to be 8.4 oz. Regular ramen noodles are typically 3 oz each block, so if you use these you would only need 3 blocks instead of 4.
