Udon Noodles Stir-fry
Udon noodles are one of the most popular Japanese dishes outside of Japan. These thick noodles are ready in only 5 minutes and you can prepare them in a stir-fry or in a soup alike.
Here, I have prepared them in a quick stir-fry. The beauty of it is that you can accompany udon noodles with any vegetables you have in the fridge: Bell peppers, broccoli, mushrooms, mangetout, sprouts, bok choy… you can keep it simple or get very fancy. They will always taste delicious!
- 2 portions of Udon noodles
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1 yellow bell pepper
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 red scallion
- A handful of fresh spinach
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seed oil
- 2 tablespoons tamari soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
- 1 teaspoons ground ginger
Put the Udon noodles in a saucepan, cover with water and cook according to the package instructions (they are usually ready in 4-5 minutes).
Thinly slice the garlic and scallion. Transfer them in a skillet with toasted sesame oil. Heat to low. Rinse, de-seed and slice the bell peppers into strips. Transfer the peppers to the skillet, together with the fresh spinach, and stir-fry until they’re soft. Season with tamari sauce, to taste, and add the ground ginger.
Rinse the noodles and transfer them to the skillet. Sizzle with Teriyaki sauce and mix well. Stir-fry for a couple of minutes, until the sauce is absorbed by the noodles.
Transfer to a serving bowl and serve hot.
