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