When I am able to go to a large supermarket such as “Meijers”, one of the items I often buy is these fresh Japanese noodles. They take only 3 minutes to cook and absorb flavors very well. The noodles are incredibly versatile. You can chop, saute and sprinkle nearly any veggie with soy sauce/tamari to go with the noodles. You can customize the dish to the season or ingredients you like. The following is a rendition I recently created.
First, I sauteed up a bunch of mushrooms – a carton of shitake (about 10) and 8 oz of mini Portobello mushrooms that happened to be on sale. Oh la la – check out the steam!
For heft to my dish, I fried up some tofu and sprinkled it with tamari.Next, I chopped and sauteed the carrots and little cabbage I had gotten at the indoor organic market. Someone stored these well because they still had a lot of flavor!
Then I chopped & added this beautiful baby bok choy that sang out “spring is coming” to me in the store. It only needed about 2 minutes in the hot pan.
Meanwhile, boil your noodles and dress with a soy sauce & a teaspoon or two of dark sesame oil. If you like some heat, add some chili sauce such as Sriracha or red pepper flakes. You can also keep the oiled noodles warm in the oven covered w/ aluminum foil.
