Spicy Udon Noodles

My daughter loves any kind of noodles.  I saw some fresh Udon noodles in Asian super market and had to get it home.  This recipe is very quick, easy and tasty!!

  • Udon Noodles - 1 pound cooked (follow the instructions on the packet)
  • Mixed Vegetables - 1 cup (I used frozen carrots, peas, corn and beans)
  • Basil leaves (optional) - 6-8 leaves crushed roughly
  • Salt - 1 tea spoon (adjust per taste)
  • Chili Garlic paste - 1 table spoon (you can buy this in any super market)
  • Olive oil - 1 table spoon
  • Chicken (optional) - 1/2 cup shredded - I did not use it

To a pan on medium heat, add Olive oil.  Once the oil is heated, add the mixed Vegetables.  Saute and cover the lid till cooked.  This takes about 5-10 minutes depending on how finely you have chopped the vegetables.  Add the Udon Noodles, Basil leaves, Salt, Chili Garlic Paste and Chicken (Chicken is optional) saute well till the Noodles take on all the moisture and flavor.  Serve hot with some pot stickers!!
