When you get that craving for Asian food, my Hoisin Broccoli Noodles can be either a vegetarian meal or a delicious side dish. This could be the easiest, Asian style one-pan noodle dish that can be ready in as little as 10 minutes. And, it’s made with an easy homemade hoisin sauce.

An easy side dish, or a vegetarian noodle main dish. Delicious and versatile because you can eat is as is, or add protein. It also makes the best leftovers for lunch.

The hoisin sauce really could not be easier to make. Yes, you can use hoisin sauce from a jar, but why would you? Have you seen the ingredients list? Can you even pronounce some of them? Because I can’t! This sauce comes without all the unnecessary ingredients typical of store-bought Hoisin sauce and the ones I’ve bought in the past have one common denominator… they’re always too sweet.

Serving suggestion

I like to serve my Grilled Miso Shrimp alongside these noodles, or my Asian-Style Grilled Mushroom Skewers. If you’re looking for a meat dish, try my Grilled Korean Beef Bulgogi Style Skewers. For a fish option, Teriyaki Glazed Salmon would also be a delicious alternative!

Optional additions: water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, crispy noodles, bean sprouts.

Optional proteins: Tofu, shrimp, chicken, fried egg.

Spice up your noodles!

This is a non-spicy dish. There is chili paste in the sauce, but just enough for flavor. However, you can add as much chili paste as you want to turn up the heat on these broccoli noodles to get your favorite balance of flavor and spiciness.

What type of noodles can be used for hoisin noodles?

Lo mein, chow mein, ramen, any stir fry noodles and even spaghetti would work if you can’t find any Asian noodles.
