How to make Teriyaki Noodles

Ingredients

Ready to make an easy one-pot meatless meal for you family? Great let’s do this.

This recipe for Teriyaki Noodles is made all in one pot: the noodles, veggies, and sauce.

Two healthy veggies are first sautéed together and then ingredients for the sauce and noodles join. The pot simmers away resulting in a delicious meal.

These noodles can hold their own as a main dish, and perhaps accompanied by Egg Drop Soup (coming soon) or a Simple Spinach Salad.

Or they can be the side to Teriyaki Chicken or Baked General Tso Chicken perhaps. They really can do it all!

Supplies:

Luckily this only requires one pot *happy dance* you will also need a few other regular kitchen tools.

  • Knifes & Cutting Board
  • Box Grateror handheld grater for the carrots
  • Large pot/Dutch Oven I swear by My Dutch Oven, it is my kitchen work horse, I you don’t have one yet I would highly recommend
  • Spoon/Tongs
  • Glass Measuring Cup & Measuring Spoons

Ingredients

I swear this list looks longer than it should, probably because it has a few everyday spices and water included!

  • Green Cabbageyou will only need half for this recipe, one Napa cabbage could also be used
  • Carrotsthese will be shredded
  • Oilany neutral variety works here like olive, canola, or vegetable oil
  • Soy Sauceuse low-sodium if you are sensitive to salt
  • Brown Sugar
  • Ground Mustard
  • Ground Ginger
  • Garlic Powder
  • Spaghettia 1 pound box
  • Water – in the instructions you will see that you might need to add a little extra water towards the end, I found during testing different brands of pasta take a little bit different amount
  • Sesame Seedsfor finishing the dish at the end

Instructions for Making One-Pot Teriyaki Noodles

Heat your large pot over medium-high heat. Once the pot is hot add the oil, shredded cabbage, and carrots. Sauté about 5 minutes until the vegetables start to become tender. 

Now add the soy sauce, brown sugar, mustard, ginger, and garlic to the pot, mix in. Add the spaghetti to the pot, it is not necessary but you can break the spaghetti in half for ease! Add the 3 ½ cups of water. 

You will cook uncovered 15-18 minutes. Once the spaghetti noodles start to become maluable/bendable start stirring the pot every few minutes and more often at the end of cooking (to make sure the noodles don’t stick to the bottom).

Note that different brands of pasta require slightly different amount of water, so if you are getting towards the end of the cook time and your noodles aren’t cooked through but there isn’t enough water left add an additional ½ cup of water to the pot and continue to cook until the noodles are tender and the sauce has thickened. 

Once the noodles are cooked through remove from the heat and toss the sesame seeds into the noodles. Serve immediately, garnish with more sesame seeds and if you like, green onions.

Questions, Tips, & Tricks

Can these teriyaki noodles be kept as leftovers and reheated?

Yes! While noodles don’t typically keep super well check out this little tip: To re-heat leftovers splash a little water on the noodles before microwaving to keep them from drying out. Just enough water to lightly coat everything.

Can I add chicken or another protein to these noodles?

Absolutely. I would recommend adding in precooked chicken towards the end of cooking (You could use leftover or rotisserie chicken).
