  • 300 g oyster mushrooms
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced

  5. Add tomato paste, soy sauce, black vinegar, and 5 cups of water. Bring to boil and season with salt and pepper. Lower the heat to medium-low and continue to simmer for 10 minutes.
  6. Add noodles and bok choy to the pot. Continue to simmer until noodles, and bok choy is tender.
  7. Divide the noodles and vegetables among bowl, then ladle the hot soup over the top. Serve with the remaining mushrooms, chopped green onion, sesame seeds, sesame, and chili oil
