INGREDIENTS

2 servings udon noodles
Half onion
3 leaves chinese cabbage
Half carrot
Half green pepper
2 spring onions
1 clove garlic

- Spicy Miso Sauce
2 Tbls red miso or brown miso paste
2 Tbls mirin
1 Tbls sake or white wine
2 Tsp sugar
1 Tsp chinese chili bean sauce 'toban jan' (or similar asian chili bean paste - NOT hot sauce)


Directions:
1. First make the spring onion for garnish ('Shiraga-negi' in Japanese): Cut off the bottom 15cm of the spring onions, then cut in half widthwise. Make a lengthwise cut down the centre. Open the spring onions like paper, slice them into thin strips. Put the strips into a bowl of water.
2. Boil noodles according to package directions and remove from water. Wash in cold water and drain. Set aside. Mix all ingredients for the spicy miso sauce in a bowl and set aside.
3. Heat a little vegetable oil in a frying pan, add minced garlic. After the garlic starts to smell nice, add sliced onion, cabbage, carrot, green pepper and the leftover parts of the spring onions. Fry all of that over high heat.
4. After the vegetables are lightly cooked, add the cooked udon noodles and the sauce. Fry until the sauce has coated everything. Place noodles on a plate, garnish with the 'Shiraga-negi' from the first step. EAT!!



Udon noodles are a traditional Japanese vegan noodle which are easy to find in other countries. The traditional way to eat udon is in a hot dashi soup, or with a soya sauce base sauce which is not vegan. This is one other vegan way to eat this kind of noodle. The spicy miso sauce has nice strong miso flavor. If you like miso soup, I bet you will like this recipe too!

Vegan Memo:
- The 'Shiraga-negi' will get curly after you put it in water.
- Vegetables shouldn't be over cooked. The texture of the vegetables is important! You want them to still have some "bite" after cooking.
