I am a true noodle lover, and there is one particular noodle I so crave especially on a rainy and cloudy day like today. Hot, steamy udon! Now, let's start with all the ingredients.
I am putting some shrimps and Japanese fishcakes along with onion, carrots, garlic, red pepper and green scallion. You could add a lot more Veges if you want, and replace shrimp with chicken or beef.
Boil 2 cups of water in a pot. Meanwhile, chop all the vegetables and set them aside.
You could use any Japanese style udon noodle. Keep the rest frozen. When cooking, just take the noodle out about 5 minutes before and it'll thaw naturally.
This is the soup base sauce I'm going to use.
Once water boils, put all the Veges in except green scallions.
Then add 3 tbsp of soup base for udon
Finally add the noodle and green scallions. Boil on high for about 2-3 more minutes.
I like my noodle always spicy so I'm going to put some black pepper, and red pepper powder.
Meanwhile I chopped some roasted seaweed which I'm going to add in the noodle at the end.
Finally add roasted seaweed and some sesame seed. It's all ready now. Yum!
It's always been one of my favorite comfort food. Enjoy! :)
