SZECHUAN MIRACLE NOODLES

In yesterday’s post I introduced you to Shirataki Miracle Noodles.  The recipe in this post is one that I came up with and has been a regular in my kitchen since.  It is so quick and tasty. 

I need to address the fact that the Sriracha sauce in the recipe is not completely vegan.  There is some fish extract in the sauce (way down on the ingredient list).  While I eat a plant based diet and do not eat any animal flesh, I do on occasion consume sauces that have fish extracts in them.  I married into a Chinese family and have picked-up so many wonderful cooking tips from them.  They have also intriduced me to some really great marinades and sauces.  I feel that these sauces make up such a small percentage of my daily diet that I am personally OK with using the sauces in small amounts (i.e.this recipe only calls for 1/4 tsp. of Sriracha…of that 1/4 tsp, the fish extract is the 5th ingredient).

 *A reader wrote in to let me know that the Sriracha with the rooster IS vegan…that is so great to know.  The bottle of Sriracha in my fridge is a different brand and contains fish extract.

INGREDIENTS

1 package angel hair Miracle Noodles

¼ of an onion, sliced into matchsticks (I used a red onion)

½ cup dried mushrooms, reconstituted (I bought mine at Costco)

½ – 1 tsp. Sriracha sauce (I like it HOT)

5 basil leaves, cut into thin strips

scarce amount of olive oil

soy sauce to taste

dash of sesame oil (optional)

 ~

Pour hot water over the dried mushrooms.  Once reconstituted, slice to desired size.

Rinse the noodles in a colander and drain. 

Pour a very slight amount of olive oil into a pan and sauté the onions. 

Once the onions are translucent and slightly browned, add in the Miracle Noodles.  Toss to incorporate and then add the Sriracha sauce and soy sauce.  Mix well.

Finally, add the mushrooms and basil and toss to incorporate.

That’s it!  Pour the noodles into a bowl and enjoy…

  1. Love the rooster.:) Great picture. The sauteed onions, and about everything else, has my mouthwatering.

  2. Oh yum this dish looks amazing I LOVE siracha and lots of it!

  3. I just updated the recipe…like a complete scatterbrain I forgot to include the soy sauce!

  4. the sriracha that comes in the bottle with the rooster on it is vegan and does not contain any animal products. it’s totally vegan. there are lots of ways to cook cruelty free – and you can totally make your own sauces and marinades that are vegan and don’t contain fish sauce or other animal products. homemade sauces and marinade are just as delicious and contain less preservatives, too. there are plenty of vegan-friendly marinades and sauces out there you can buy as well. 🙂

    my partner is obsessed with Siracha, and this recipe sounds quick and delicious! good to know our brand is vegan – I am so bad about checking ingredients for animal products down to the letter…

  6. This looks delicious! I will have to give it a whirl… anything with Sriracha is guaranteed to be scrumptious 🙂
