  • 1 lb egg noodles
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

  • ½ cup carrots, shredded
  • ½ cup dried shiitake mushrooms, soaked, stems removed, and julienned

In a large pot, bring 10 cups of water to a boil on high heat. Cook noodles in boiling water until tender (approximately 5-7 minutes), drain and set aside. Heat a non-stick wok or pan over high heat. Add 1/2 Tbsp olive oil, swirling to coat the pan, add noodles and pan-fry until noodles are golden (about 7-10 minutes). Remove noodles from wok.
