Level of Difficulty: super simple
Pots/Pans Used: one!

Ingredients


2 packages of Udon noodles (7.22 oz each)
2 tsp garlic, minced
1 tsp fresh ginger, thinly slices
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 TBL sesame oil
1 tsp mustard
the juice of half a lime (about 1 TBL)
1/4 tsp hot sauce
1 1/2 TBL sesame seeds
olive oil

Told ya you would see some savory! I make this all the time for lunch... usually with a Gardein cutlet on the side. Although, I usually just saute the udon noodles with sesame seeds and some soy sauce. I decided to jazz it up a bit and this is what I came up with. Takes only minutes to make and ends up being a reasonably filling and healthy meal.

In a skillet, saute garlic in olive oil over medium-low heat for a few minutes. Turn up the heat and add the udon noodles, so that they can brown a little. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine ingredients ginger thru hot sauce and stir well. Now that the noodles have some color, pour this sauce on top of the noodles and saute for 1-2 minutes. Finally, add the sesame seeds. Serve hot or even cold! Makes 2-3 servings.

Silly question, but do you peel ginger before cooking with it???? HELP! :)

Yes you do. And a tip for peeling ginger that I learned on the Food Network is you can just scrape the ginger with a spoon, and the skin comes off easily :)

Amazing, tasty and easy!!! I have udon noodles at home and most of the ingredients. Will get the remaining ingredients and prepare this for dinner tomorrow. I spent countless hours in the kitchen last week cooking all manner of dishes so I'm now ready for a few days of easy cooking and less piles of dishes to clean...many thanks, Sammie. I really enjoy this blog. Silvia

This was a huge hit for me and my still meat eating bf! We ended up making another batch each for lunches.

this ended up being way too salty, needs something other than 1/4 cup of soy sauce to make a sauce.

hmmm, I haven't made this in a while but I'll test it out again. Make sure you used enough udon noodles. If so, I recommend cutting down on the soy sauce if you're sensitive to salt. You may have just inspired me to come up with a brand new udon recipe :)
