“Cantonese must eat rice! Everyday.” That’s what my dad says, but it’s definitely not what I do lol. That’s because my favorite thing to eat in the entire world is noodles. I can have it anytime; breakfast, lunch, dinner, or as a late-night snack, you name it.
I am so happy to share my go-to noodles recipe with you. In fact, it is rarely a recipe, it is a quick meal that anyone can prepare in a time crunch. All you have to do is fry an egg, boil the Udon and mix some sauces together. Come on now, anyone can do this. So, let’s do it 🙂
- 2 Japanese Udon
- ½ TSP Salt
- 2 TBS Chili Oil
- 2 TBS Sesame Paste
- 2 Eggs
- Salt and black pepper
- Oil for frying the eggs
- Boil water in a medium sized pot.
- When the water is boiled, add the salt in the water.
- Place the frozen Udon in the boiling water, stir the noodles around with a pair of chopsticks to loosen it up.
- When the noodles are separated, place them in a bowl and mix in the Sesame Paste, then the Chili Oil. If you put in the Chili Oil first, the oil will coat the noodles, it would be hard for the Udon to soak up that sesame paste (this is just my theory lol).
- Heat up a pan to fry the eggs, season with salt and black pepper.
- To assemble, just put the sunny side up eggs on top of the udon noodles, c’est fini!
See, I told you that was easy? Since the preparation is so simple, you want to make sure you have good quality ingredients. I always make sure I buy good Udon and have amazing sauces stocked up in my fridge for this reason. Bon appetite!
