  • 5 oz ramen or other Asian noodles (I use these Chuka Soba (aka Ramen) noodles + buy them by the case!)
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 scallions, sliced
  • 2 jalapeños, one diced, one sliced thin for garnish
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbs fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 Tbs sambal oelek or chile paste
  • 2 cups sliced shiitake mushrooms (or baby bella, crimini, white mushrooms or a combo of any of these)
  • 2 Tbs soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups sweet potato, diced into small pieces (you can also use butternut squash or pumpkin)
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth (more if you want soupier noodles)
  • 4 cups fresh spinach, roughly chopped (you can also use kale)
  • chopped cilantro, basil, etc, to garnish
  • sesame seeds, to garnish
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large pot, heat sesame oil over a medium-high heat. Add onions, season with salt and pepper. Sauté until soft and starting to brown, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add half of the scallions, 1 jalapeño, garlic, ginger and chile paste. Sauté another minute until fragrant.

  3. Add sliced mushrooms. Stir to incorporate. Add soy sauce. Sauté another 2-3 minutes.

  4. Mix in diced sweet potato. Sauté another 2-3 minutes.

  5. Stir in vegetable broth. Simmer until sweet potatoes are tender ~ 15 -20 minutes.

  6. Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook the ramen noodles according to package directions. Drain.

  7. Add prepared ramen noodles and chopped spinach to the simmering vegetables. Cook another 2 minutes until heated through and spinach has wilted.

  8. Garnish with sliced jalapeño, scallions, cilantro and sesame seeds.
