1 tablespoon
olive oil (or vegetable oil, divided)
3 cups
bean sprout
1 cup
bamboo shoots (julienned sliced thinly in strips)
1/2 cup

1/2 cup
shiitake mushrooms (dried, soaked, stems removed, and julienned)
2 units
green onion (julienned)
1/2 teaspoon

1. In a large pot on high heat, bring 10 cups of water to boil. Cook noodles in boiling water until tender or “al-dente,” approximately 5 - 7 minutes, drain and set aside.

2. Heat a non-stick wok or pan over high heat. Add 1/2 tablespoon oil, swirling to coat the pan, add noodles and pan-fry until noodles are golden, about 7 to 10 minutes. Remove noodles from wok.

3. Add remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil to wok, add vegetables, and stir-fry until just cooked, about 5 to 7 minutes.

4. Return noodles to the wok, add salt, sugar and soy sauce.
Stir to combine and serve.
