Sesame & Vegetable Udon Noodles

Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Servings 5

Ingredients
  

  • 1 carrot
  • 1 cup broccoli (chopped)
  • 1 brown onion you can use another type of onion, whatever you have at home (red onion etc.)
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1/4 cauliflower head
  • 1 cup red capsicum (pepper) sliced capsicum
  • 2 tbsp roasted sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1.5 tbsp sesame seeds If you want to add extra flavour, you can toast the sesame seeds on a fry pan
  • salt & pepper A generous amount
  • 279 gm udon noodles
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Instructions
 

  • Boil a pot of water and add udon noodles to the water, once the water has come to the boil. Once cooked rinse with cold water and keep to the side.
  • On a chopping board cut the carrots and capsicum into sticks. Cut the cauliflower and broccoli into small florets.
  • In a wok or a large fry pan add olive oil and diced onion with the grated ginger. Once the onion has started to caramelise (brown) add all your vegetables. I usually start with my hard vegetables first and slowly add the softer ones to follow.
  • After a few minutes add the sesame oil, salt & pepper and soy sauce and give it a good mix.
  • Add the udon noodles into the wok/ pan and ensure everything is nicely mixed together, fusing the flavours.
  • Serve in a bowl and sprinkle some additional sesame seeds on top.
