Yaki Udon (焼きうどん) is Japanese stir-fried udon noodles with vegetables and a protein, seasoned with a flavourful savory sauce. It’s super quick and easy to make, and easily customizable with ingredients you have on hand. (Vegan + Vegetarian friendly)

  • 1/4 onion, sliced
  • 2 shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cup vegetables of choice (cabbage, carrots… etc)
  • 1 serving udon noodles (about 90g)
  • soy curls (optional)
  • 2 scallions, chopped into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 tbsp vegan mentsuyu*

  1. Heat 1 tbsp of vegetable oil in a wok over medium high heat. Add in the onions and fry for 1 minute. Add in the shiitake mushrooms and cook for 30 seconds. Add in the vegetables and scallions, and cook until softened (about 1 1/2 – 2 minutes). Add the udon, mentsuyu and mirin and cook for another 30 seconds or until noodles are loosened. Serve and enjoy!
