Spicy Enoki Mushrooms with Garlic

Spicy Garlic Enoki Mushrooms is a dish you’ll make again and again if you enjoy robust flavors from both chili peppers and garlic. You may have a delicious, simple main course or side dish that you can cook again and again with just 9 ingredients and a few simple steps.

I can’t say when I first tried enoki mushrooms, but I remember liking their chewy feel right away.

These mushrooms resemble noodles in their length and thinness. They have a neutral flavor and a soft texture with a slight crunch.

The mushrooms soak up the flavorful sauce in dishes like our Enoki Mushrooms with Garlic and Scallion Sauce or in a spicy hot pot.

They’re cooked in sauce again, but with a spicy blend of chili powder and garlic powder.

Eight whole garlic cloves and one cup of garlic chives are used in this dish. Chives explicitly grown for their garlicky flavor are known as garlic chives or Chinese chives (rather than the onion flavor of regular chives).

However, when cooked, the chives take on a more pleasant, even sweet, flavor; they aren’t quite as pungent as raw garlic. They enhance the dish by providing different textures and flavors.

Finally, we can stop elaborating. You can whip up this meal in just 15 minutes, so let’s start.


  • 14 ounces of washed fresh enoki mushrooms (divided into bundles)
  • 8 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 1 Thai chili (chopped)
  • 1 cup of garlic chives (cut into 5cm lengths)
  • 3 tablespoons of neutral oil
  • 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of light soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dark soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon of sugar


  1. In a small, heat-safe bowl, combine the garlic and Thai chili. Oil for cooking should be heated in a medium skillet over medium heat until it begins to shimmer. The oil will sizzle when it meets the garlic and chili.
    Next, mix some oyster sauce, light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, and sugar.
  2. Place the pan back on the stove and add half of the enoki mushrooms in a single layer. Next, add the chives and, finally, the remaining mushrooms. Use a ladle to transfer the sauce to the mushrooms.
  3. Toss in the mushrooms and chives, bring to a simmer, cover, and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until the vegetables have softened. Start serving right away.
