This colourful dish uses two types of mushrooms for both texture and flavour. Noodles are huge fun to slurp and you can enjoy the challenge of eating this with chopsticks and see who can slurp their noodles the loudest. Adjust the spicing and switch the vegetables according to your family’s taste and preferences.
We love portobello mushrooms due to their meaty texture so the most dedicated carnivores will not feel they are missing out.
Once you start to cook this comes together very fast, so cut and chop all the vegetables beforehand.
