Mushroom Dan Dan Noodles - Cook Republic

Today I want to tell you about my new favourite kitchen appliance. One that makes fresh 2-ingredient noodles in just about 8 minutes – from scratch! Seems like a dream? Too good to be true? Not with the Philips HR2358/06 Pasta And Noodle Maker. This powerful machine with its automatic mixing, kneading and extruding produces half a kilo of fresh pasta or noodles in 15 minutes. The four different discs that come with the machine make noodles/spaghetti, linguini, penne and sheets. Can you imagine the possibilities?

Gluten free noodles, vegan pasta, colourful veggie juice spiked dumpling sheets and so much more! I am so excited! To celebrate the Philips collaboration with the Night Noodle Markets in Sydney, I decided to create my forever favourite Dan -Dan Noodles with this amazing machine – but a vegetarian mushroom version!

Philips Pasta And Noodle Make - Cook RepublicHomemade Fresh Spelt Noodles - Cook Republic

One of the first things that struck me about the machine was how sleek and stylish it was. I was expecting it to be much bigger but the compact size and the white colour was perfect on my benchtop. The Philips Pasta and Noodle Maker is very easy to use. You just pop in the flour using the measuring cups it comes with, turn on the machine and choose a program (either 300g or 600g pasta/noodles). You then add the liquid through the fluid feeder as the machine mixes and kneads and then wait for a couple of minutes to receive the first lot of noodles/pasta. Depending on the disc you have attached (I am using the noodle/spaghetti disc) the pasta is extruded and you can cut it into the desired length using their handy cutting tool as the pasta is being churned out.

The pasta/noodles can be made ahead of time and stored in a sealed glass container in the fridge for up to 3 days. I love this even more because it means that I can have fresh pasta prepped for the week in the weekend and can make absolutely any combination of healthy veggie flavoured pastas and noodles without any additives or nasties. The pasta machine is also very easy to clean as the whole mixing component comes apart for a quick wash in the sink (easier than building a little Lego model!)

So, one of the first things I made was Spelt noodles. I made them with egg but you could easily make these without and your dish would be vegan-friendly. The colour of the fresh spelt noodles was something to behold. A beautiful burnished bronze that was rustic and wholesome. I decided to create a vegetarian version of the notorious street food – Dan Dan Noodles. The hallmark of Chinese Sichuan cooking, Dan Dan Noodles or dan dan mian is a dish comprising of set-your-mouth-on-fire noodles in a spicy broth topped with mince pork.

My version is 13-year-old-adventurous-kid friendly and still has enough kick to make you want to sip water through your meal. But it is vegetarian and healthier with a sauce that is as close to authentic as you will get with a list of readily available ingredients from your supermarket or Chinese grocer. If you want to make it the real deal increase the chilli oil in the sauce to half a cup (yikes!)

  1. Chilli Oil

The chilli oil is key to this recipe. You want a chilli oil in a jar that has bits of dried chilli flakes and seeds swimming heavily throughout the dark rich red oil. Usually the ingredient list on an oil like this will state – sesame oil, chilli, spices, soy sauce, garlic, sugar etc etc. (a good brand is Lee Kum Lee) You DO NOT want a chilli oil that is just the red coloured oil in a tall bottle.


  1. Noodles

You want thin wheat or egg noodles that are usually found in stir-fries


  1. Sauce

The Dan Dan noodle sauce has a creamy texture that comes from Chinese sesame paste (something that is widely available in Chinese supermarkets). Chinese sesame paste is not the same as tahini and recipes that call for tahini as a substitute have to deal with tahini’s inherent bitter flavour. If you don’t have Chinese sesame paste, use smooth peanut butter instead. It is the closest in taste and texture to Chinese sesame paste.


  1. Protein

Traditionally the protein is ground pork and you could also use chicken. But you have to try my mushroom version, it is incredibly more-ish and full of goodness. This component of the dish is created by  stir-frying the protein with Su-Mi-Ya-Cai, traditional fermented mustard greens. A lot of recipes substitute with Chinese preserved turnips. Nowadays most Chinese grocers stock these products but I have a found a great everyday substitute – radish and black bean sauce. Although less authentic, finely chopped radish adds the required crunch and spicy bite to the stir-fry while the black bean sauce or paste adds the salty umami flavour that the dish needs.

We cook a lot of Chinese at home and over years of repeatedly cooking Chinese we have learned the most important lesson of all – prep. Chinese cooking is all about the prep. Usually a dish will require 30 minutes of prep and 5 minutes of fast cooking in a hot sizzling wok. You not only need to prep your raw ingredients and sauce but also the garnishes and finishing elements.


For the Hot Mushroom Dan Dan Noodles, follow this process

  1. Prepare your Noodles first and foremost in the Phillips Pasta And Noodle Maker. Keep them covered.
  2. Prepare the sauce, pour it in a microwaveable container and keep it covered.
  3. Prepare the Mushroom stir-fry. Store in a microwaveable container and keep iot covered.
  4. Boil two pots of water – one deep saucepan for the noodles and another shallow frying pan for the greens.
  5. Lay out your serving bowls and have your garnishes on the ready.
  6. Cook the noodles in the saucepan and when they are done, add the greens to the shallow pan.
  7. Heat the sauce and mushroom mix in the microwave
  8. Drain and noodles and divide in serving bowls.
  9. Add hot sauce, mushrooms and greens from the pan.
  10. Garnish and enjoy hot!

To Assemble

  • To prepare the spelt noodles, place flour in the mixing compartment of the Philips HR2358/06 Pasta And Noodle Maker. Turn the pasta maker on and select the 300g program and press start. Slowly add the egg and water mixture through the liquid feeder. Once the noodles are extruded, cut them into desired length using the cutting tool and curl them into a coil. Noodles can be made and stored in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

  • To prepare the mushroom mix, heat sesame oil in a medium wok on high. Add garlic and ginger. Sauté for a few seconds. Add mushroom and radish. Toss and cook until mushrooms start sweating. Add chilli oil, black bean and Shaoxing wine. Cook tossing constantly until liquid is evaporated, mushrooms are plump and coated all over. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • To cook the noodles, bring a pot of water to boil. Add the noodle coils and cook for approximately 3-5 minutes. Drain the hot water and rinse the noodles in cold water briefly to stop the cooking process. Place the still warm noodles in two shallow noodle bowls.
  • Spoon the hot sauce over the noodles in the two bowls. Divide the mushroom mix between the two bowls and heap on top of the noodles. Top the noodles with steamed Asian greens, crushed peanuts and chives. Serve hot with extra chilli oil on the side.

  1. Vanessa

    Noodle-ay-hee-hoo! I’d definately make tapioca noodles to make our favourite vietnamese soup, so we don’t have to drive a 5hour round trip to Brisbane and back just to get our fix

  2. Eleanor

    NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO! The possibilities are endless and I’d like to make oodles of noodles, but I’d really love to try a sweet dessert version of noodles, like rice flour noodles with a tangy lemon and maple syrup sauce with a sprinkling of chopped pistachios and toasted almond flakes to go!

  3. Grace Newman

    Love this recipe! And so excited about this competition – NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO. With the Phillips Viva Noodle & Pasta, I’d try making a squid ink linguine, served with spicy chilli garlic prawns & squid in a tomato broth. Plenty of Parmesan to serve, plus a squeeze of lemon (and a big glass of red)! Food dreams

  4. Amy

    Noodle-ay-hee-hoo! I’m wheat free and am so sick of the boring rice and corn pasta out of a box. The other day my partner made spelt pasta and I was blown away! So much flavour and texture. If I won the machine I’d experiment with all sorts of wheat free pasta – spelt, egg noodles (which I’ve never tried!), buckwheat… Just simple fresh spaghetti with loads of olive oil, garlic, basil, salt and pepper would be HEAVEN.

  5. Rebecca

    This machine sounds AMAZING!!! Id make lasagne – with a meat and veggie sauce that has sweet potato lots of red wine and a bit of milk to add stacks of flavour… and lots of herbs! It’s a win win when you have kids – home made pasta = no nasties and a meat sauce that has more veggies than meat! Yum and super healthy… I’d LOVE this pasta maker!! Pick me please!!
    I’d also make – penne with broccoli pesto, pancetta and cherry tomatoes… and maybe add spinach juice or beetroot juice to the pasta to make it pretty for the kids!! Pink pasta – my 3.5 yo son would LOVE that – his fave color = #dinnerwinner
    Love your site and love your recipes!! Thanks!!!

  6. Emily Yam

    NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO! First off, I am so excited to enter this contest because I’ve been wanting to make my own noodles for such a long time, so thank you for this opportunity.

    If I won the Philips Viva Collection Pasta and Noodle maker, I would make Pan Mee, a dish I grew up eating… but with a twist!

    Pan Mee dish consists of a wheat flour noodles, an anchovy broth, and is topped with fried anchovies, ground pork, shiitake mushrooms, and some vegetables.

    The anchovy broth is usually made by boiling pork bones, dried anchovies, scallions, water and salt in a pot for an hour or so to get the flavours going.

    The ground pork is cooked separately using ingredients very similar to mushroom mix recipe you posted above (soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, ginger and chilli oil).

    The noodles are boiled separately in plain water. The dish is then ‘assembled’ together in a bowl.

    While Pan Mee is good in itself I believe the noodles can be more exciting. The noodles traditionally are easy enough to make-they are made of plain flour, eggs and water.

    Here’s where I change things up- What I would like to do is chop up some Chinese chives, and mix it in the dough. I think not only would the noodles look spectacular when they have small green flecks running through them, but the noodles would also taste amazing with hints of the garlicky flavour of the chives.

    I am hungry just thinking about this recipe.

    I really hope I win this competition so that I can satisfy my hunger… and of course, explore the endless possibilities I would have with the Philips Viva Collection Pasta and Noodle maker.

  7. Muppy Sylvester

    NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO! I make loads of spelt pasta from scratch as my kid can’t eat wheat…so needless to say this machine would be aweeeesome! So my first pasta making endeavour would be from the most divine organic stone ground spelt flour, and I would keep it simple with some crisp bacon, beautiful garlicky mushrooms, fresh kale and sage from the garden tossed in a slightly burnt butter sauce, covered in some finely grated Parmesan.

  8. Sonika

    NOODLE-AY-HEE-HO I would make chickpea pasta with capers, sundried tomatoes, olives, garlic ,olive oil,chilli flakes and crumbled feta cheese

  9. Vanessa Morey

    NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO! What a great giveaway. I’d experiment with sweet pasta. Almond flour pasta with rosemary roasted peaches, salted caramel sauce and a toasted almond crumble for a little crunch. Yum!

  10. Cate

    NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO! We love fresh pasta here, but the mess and time it takes for the hand made version is quite prohibitive, therefore if I won this machine I would make all the pasta! I am very excited by the idea of adding veggies in the mix, and have always wanted to try beetroot fettuccine (or ravioli). Also, I can’t believe I have never thought of making noodles for Asian dishes… that would have to change pronto!

  11. Catherine


    If I had the blissful luxury of having my own oasta machine I would whip out my nonna’s favourite recipes and start creating feasts for my family. Hommade beef ragu, spaghetti marinara, even a simple ‘pasta e burro’ (pasta with butter) would no doubt taste amazing with home made pasta.

    I have a feeling that a piece like this in our kitchen will definitely become a family favourite!

  12. Naomi

    Looks like an amazing recipe. Would probably use the pasta maker to first try the mushroom Dan Dan noodles. After that my kids will insist on “crocodile sauce” (aka pesto) and then it will be NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO and away we go!!

  13. Alisha falconer

    “NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO” Oh my goodness this machine looks so easy and amazing! I’m a new mum and noodles have become a regular dish. Currently the two minute kind because of time restrictions, much to my partners delight. I’d love to make fresh, no preservative and healthy noodles for my little family! Would experiment with a delicious broth using slow cooked meats with either some miso or curry paste, lots of fresh herbs and wilted greens like spinach and bok choy and some broccolini for crunch! A sprinkle of chilli to finish and some crispy shallots! My mouth is watering!! Please pick me!

  14. Melissa Verdino

    NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO! I would make matcha/green tea spaghetti with pepper, pecorino, garlic and fish sauce! Seriously yummy.

  15. Melissa

    So many things that I would do,
    With the Philips HR2342/06.
    I would show all my friends my vegan noodle tricks.

    First. A collection of dumpling skins.
    Spinach, kale, sweet potato.
    Second. A plate of pasta wins.
    Top that with some tasty tomato.
    And third, a course to pair with the gins;

    To win it now would be a dream.
    So thank you for making me scream!
    (With delight if I win 😉 )

  16. Leila Trees

    I would make some clean pasta out of adzuki beans or similar for a simple, delicious bolognaise. I’m all about flavour, as long as it’s nourishing!
    This would go so lovely in my new home, especially seeings as though my 21st Birthday is on the 22nd, the day the competition closes. Some would say, meant to be.

  17. Megan Carter

    Noodle-ay-hee-hoo! Having recently found out I’ve got gestational diabetes (luckily I’ve only got 11 weeks to go!), the first thing I’d make is low carb pasta! Any kind of veggie and pasta/noodle combo sounds good to me!!!

  18. Karli Weaver

    NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO!!! I would love to win this. I’m vegan and often cook pasta for something quick (just the store bought stuff). I’d love to make it myself and for it to still be quick easy and this sounds like the perfect tool for that. As it’s coming into spring I think some homemade spaghetti with a basil pesto, sautéed asparagus and roasted vine ripened cherry tomatoes! A quick dish I’m sure with the help of this bad boy pasta maker! xx

  19. Karen Dovaston

    We have two young children (3yrs & 5yrs). Both are growing into terrific little helpers in the kitchen.
    If I was to win this Philips viva pasta and noodle maker I would make traditions, beautiful food memories, lessons and lots of tasty healthy meals.

  20. Emel

    “NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO” the things I will make with this machine,
    I would love to do dessert noodles such as a crispy sweet rice noodle with a crunch finishing with a mix berry sauce and fresh mint Or even spinach noodles or Pasta with mixed tomatoe and pesto sauce with mozzarella

  21. Vivian

    NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO! Thanks for sharing the recipe, can’t wait to try it out. Dan dan noodles is such a tasty dish and I’m glad to see a healthy version of it! I’m inspired by your recipe to make my own delicious watermelon or green tea flavoured Japanese soba noodles. Next, I’d like to make a simple broth and serve it chilled. This broth will become the light and refreshing dipping sauce to accompany the freshly made noodles. It will make a perfect meal for warmer months ahead 🙂

  22. Leanne H

    NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO! This dish looks amazing! I have a picky husband and son and would love to attempt tortillas using the lasagne cutter. Then I could make enchiladas, chips or even just smaller traditional tortillas in a rectangle shape for the little ones fingers!

  23. Hannah Puechmarin

    I would enjoy making simple spaghetti over the summer while the basil grows wild in the garden – endless pesto! I like to have it with beans and a little bit of Greek yogurt tossed through!

    “NOODLE-AY-HEE-HO” . . . Christmas seems to have come early ! First we are presented with a great spelt-based recipe for Dan Dan noodles. Then we can see that Santa Philips has put a Viva noodle maker within our sight on the Christmas tree! What a celebration we could have for family and friends if that wondrous gift was handed to us. Oh, we’d recite a rhyme or sing a song to say a big thank you. And then we’d cook! Well, I’d pick the linguine disc and make my version of Pad Thai . . . a rich one of both chicken thighs and prawns, green onions and nuts and all the delightful spices whose aromas fill the street food sections of the towns and cities and draw us to the markets yonder . . . oh, oh a plane above turning towards Europe . . . or should we clip on the flat disc and bake lasagne . . . or . . . think of all the choices, please do!

  25. Nina Jean Costantini

    “NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO” Ooh where to start??? I’ve had my eyes on these amazing Phillips pasta makers for sometime now so how lovely for some lucky little noodle to have one under the tree for this Xmas. I think I would harness my ‘inner wog’ and pay homage to my Nonna’s simple (but so delicious) roasted tomato pasta sauce stirred through some silky, fresh linguine. Nonna would take beautiful vine ripened roma tomatoes, split them in half and lay them snugly in a baking dish over a scattering of unpeeled garlic cloves. Then she would give them a good seasoning before scattering a crumb mixture over the top of day old bread, fresh oregano & basil, a couple of extra minced garlic cloves and a handful of freshly grated parmegano. Finally a good drizzle (actually more like a glug) of EVO before roasting in the oven until the tomatoes are sweet, fragrant and all those little crummy bits are golden and crisp. Then it’s simply just a few minutes of squeezing out the soft garlic and slipping the juicy tomatoes away from the skins, a quick mash with the fork to incorporate all that delicious tomatoey goodness with the sweet little jewels of garlic, olive oil, herby crumbs and “eco la”… perfect roasted tomato sauce! All it needs now is some fabulous pasta 🙂

  26. Erin

    NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO! I would make all the noodles that I miss so much from when I lived in Japan. First up soba noodles made with wholegrain buckwheat flour for more vibe than anything you can buy premade, with tsuyu to dip them in. Then I think I would also have to make ramen… mmm so many noodley memories.

  27. Tanya

    “NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO” I’d make fresh Squid Ink Linguine and top it with crispy bbq’d Ocean Trout dressed with Shallots, Coriander, Garlic, Ginger, Chilli, Soy Sauce, Honey and Olive Oil….oh yum

  28. Kim Thum

    NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO! With my new Philips Viva Pasta and Noodle Maker I will make Bánh Canh which is a thick rice noodle from Vietnam. I’ll serve the Bánh Canh with homemade chicken stock, slices of fish cake, shredded poached chicken, poached green banana prawns, drizzled with a little garlic oil, finely sliced spring onions, coriander and fresh chillies. Delicious and fresh! To make the Bánh Canh I’ll need rice flour, tapioca starch, water, salt and vegetable oil!

    Also, such a pity this win action is only for Aussies. I live in The Netherlands, and these giveaways are always in the USA or Australia. Philips, come on, Dutch based, world-wide company, why not include us???

    With a Philips Viva Pasta and Noodle maker I could make all sorts of coeliac friendly pastas, experimenting with different flours each week . If the big name brands can do make it…so can I .

  31. Tanuna

    NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO! I would make fresh gorgeous Pasta, tossed with udder delights goats curd, prosciutto and asparagus steamed to Perfection all topped off with aromatic lemon zest

  32. Harmony

    NOODLE-AYE-HE-HOO!! I’ve always wanted to say that.
    I’ve been talking about making pasta for a while, but haven’t tried it yet. I remember one time when I was about 6 years old my mom made noodles, and I was wide-eyed at the marvel of fresh noodles draped on a laundry rack to dry. Ever since then there’s a certain element of wonder associated with freshly made pasta.
    I would love to trying adding fresh Thai basil to the dough, and then using it for pad Thai and drunken noodles. And make colorful pasta, with added sweet potato, red beets, spinach, carrot… making colorful and healthy food, and giving my 4 year old son a chance to help and learn more about the wonders of cooking (pasta!) in the process.
    Thanks for a great giveaway. Your cooking inspires me to use my regular ingredients in new ways. There’s a jar of kimchi in my fridge this very minute made with your recipe, and I made pulled pork + kimchi tacos with some of it, they were

  33. Eve

    NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO!!! I would keep the flavours simple but sublime. Imagine a crab linguini with parsley and black fermented garlic running through it and some sourdough starter just for a hint of acid, served with a pungent extra virgin olive oil married with some chilli oil and infused with a clove of garlic….yum!!

  34. Dhanya Samuel

    “NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO”! Such an exciting giveaway and absolutely loved your vegetarian version of one of my favourite Chinese dishes.

    I would love to experiment and re-create a noodle recipe using Indian flavours as the base. There are so many fast food eateries across the length and breadth of India that create quick fusion Indian style noodles. And I would love to play along those lines too. Since spices are a weakness of mine, I am thinking of making whole wheat noodles tossed with a medley of veggies roasted with sambar powder.

  35. Dorana

    NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO! I would love a pasta maker to make fun coloured spaghetti for Halloween! Green with a hint of spinach to look like worms, red with a dash of tomato to look like intestines, orange with a dash of sweet potatoe to look like brains. It would be just as much fun to make as to eat!

  36. Mrs Joyful

    NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO. Buckwheat noodles. Summer’s coming, so serve those noodles cold with your choice of citrus – zest and juice- yogurt, kefir, lots of soft herbs / coriander, basil, parsley, chervil (your faves) and a dash of sesame oil or walnut or hazelnut oil. A little pile of fresh green leaves. Rocket, mustard, mizuna… make it your own and make it deliciously summery. My postcode is 2575. I’d love that machine.

  37. Martyna

    NOODLE-AY-HEE-HOO! I cannot believe how easy it is to make noodles using the Philips pasta and noodle maker… First up I would try to make rice noodles, my one year old foodie-daughter shakes with excitement at the sight of Vietnamese Pho noodle soup of the sight and sounds of her slurping and smacking the glutinous noodles from the soup, she can’t get enough so to make our own would be a big treat. Then I’d also make spelt and egg pasta to serve with strawberries, blueberries, fresh cream and a good sprinkling of creamy ricotta – a taste of summer in every mouthful.

    Chocolate pasta (using cocoa powder) with a strawberry coulis style sauce…….and berries to serve.

  39. Adity

    Using the Philips pasta and noodle maker, I want to make brown rice vermicelli so I can create a twist on the Indian Sweet Vermicelli Kheer recipe (seviyan) to make it dairy free and gluten free 🙂 . I would use brown rice flour to make the vermicelli via the Philips pasta and noodle maker. Separately in a pan pour in almond milk, grated jaggery, saffron, crushed cardamom seeds and a handful of nuts for the base kheer/pudding. Then add in the brown rice vermicelli and cook till done.

    It’s an absolute winner,
    Anyone would want to hold on to you,
    Because you made such delicious food,
    I can’t take all the credit,
    Someone should call a medic,
    Because Phillips Pasta and Noodle Maker you sent our taste-buds to heaven,
    Phillips I thank you for your presence!

    I would get my girls together to make tasty tortellini – unlike the fabulous 15 minute pound of pasta producing process – mastering the art of those tiny triangles with that much dough takes a lot of time!

    Damn, I missed out! Who won? With which recipe?
