Vegetarian Yaki Udon
My son loves udon - he loves it swimming in savoury hot broth, and he loves it when I do a quick stir-fry with fresh crunchy vegetables (pictured above). Needless to say, udon noodles is something I must always have in the freezer for 'emergency' - eg no IDEA what to cook, no other INGREDIENTS to work with, no MOOD to cook something more complicated (a.k.a. lazy days). I too love this Yaki udon dish, and when I do cook it, there usually isn't any leftovers. I'm sure you'll love it too!
This recipe is for a vegetarian version of Yaki udon, however if you prefer to add meat to it, thinly-sliced beef will be perfect with a Japanese beef marinate sauce instead of the oyster sauce in the vegetarian recipe. This dish is so quick and fuss-free you will be slurping up those strands of udon noodles in less than 20 minutes!
