Oh man, you know the craziest, torturous thing on a Friday night is listening to your mother talking about mouth watering food, the way she made it, while I am here, without food, at night, 11pm, about to go to bed, and STARVING.

Man, that is pure evilness, because for some reason, food, talking about it, seeing photos and anything, seem to make me hungry, especially the second half of the month, perhaps others ladies know what I am talking about!

So anyway, she told me she made this fried noodle with wood ears, shiitake mushrooms and broccoli, and added basil! OMG I really had to try it because it made my mouth water. The type of noodles are the Wu Mu brand, with 3 little bundles of the whole wheat noodles.

Though, you can seriously use any kind of noodles that you like, such as udon, ramen, soba, or anything that’s fresh or dried, it won’t matter, just be sure you taste it after, if you find that it’s too bland, add a little more sesame oil and soy sauce.

Chop the onion into medium or small sized strips. Dice the garlic into small pieces and put both of them in the frying pan with a tablespoon olive oil.

Turn the heat on medium high (5-6 or 6) and saute the onions for about 10 minutes. At that stage, the onions should be turning a little golden.

Meanwhile, remove the stems from the shiitake mushrooms and slice them into small pieces. Break the broccoli stalk into small florets and measure a cup, tightly packed. Get five fresh basil leaves and slice them up.

While the onions are cooking boil a saucepan of water and cook your desired noodles according to packet instructions. Usually by bringing it to a boil, add the noodles, let it boil for 5-10 minutes until the noodles are hot. Be sure to drain the noodles!

After cooking the onion for 10 minutes, add the shiitake mushrooms, broccoli, wood ears and basil.

Immediately after, add the sesame oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, salt, cayenne pepper, ginger, red pepper flakes and ground pepper. Stir and fry the vegetables for about 5 minutes.

Once the noodles are drained, add it into the frying pan with the veggies, stir a lot to let the flavour seep into the noodles. Serve with a sprinkle of sesame seeds on top.
