Ingredients

  • 2 pkgs soft vacuum-packed udon noodles (each package should be about 200g/7 oz.

Sauce:

  • 5 Tbsp peanut butter (smooth or crunchy)
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp chilli oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp. hot water

For the Stir Fry:

  • 1-2 tsp cooking oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp minced fresh ginger
  • 1 small long red chilli pepper, finely sliced
  • 1 green onion, green part only, sliced diagonally
  • (Optional) 1-2 Tbsp. finely chopped peanuts, if you used smooth peanut butter)
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine sauce ingredients and stir until smooth. Set aside.
  • In a hot wok, heat cooking oil over medium heat. Add garlic, ginger, most of the red chilli and green onion slices (reserve a bit of both, for garnish). Cook, stirring, until fragrant and just beginning to soften, 30-45 seconds. Add sauce and cook until warmed. Add udon noodles. Stir to combine. Cook, adding additional 1-2 Tbsp. hot water as needed, to loosen the sauce so it coats the noodles well.
  • Spoon noodles in to bowl. Garnish with reserved green onion and red chilli slices, additional chopped peanuts and/or sesame seeds.
