I had one of those moments where I was absolutely starving and I had no idea what to eat! I opened up the freezer and saw that I’ve had a packet of udon which has been sitting there for a long time now because I had no idea what to do with it. I knew I had to use this up soon (especially since it’s taking up precious freezer space) so I googled some udon recipes and tried to throw something together with the ingredients I had!
I started off by boiling the udon in a saucepan. Cook this until it expands a little and is nice and firm, yet smooth and a bit soft.
While that’s cooking up, I fried some onions, spring onions (green onions), shitake mushroom and beensprout in a frying pan.
Add some soy sauce and seaweed and mixed this up. Cook this for about 2-5 minutes.
Once the udon is done, add this to the pan and mix. I also added some black pepper (because I love pepper so much)
Then serve! :)
This was actually surprisingly more tasty that I expected! Must be the flavour from the shitake mushrooms and the seaweed! When I ate this, I added some Shichimi Togarashi (Japanese spice) and it was amazing. Yum yum.
