How To Cook Vegetable Noodles

These are not the noodles you and I are used to. It will be made using vegetables as the main ingredient, including zucchini and another healthy ingredient. I think that this recipe for cooking zucchini can be placed in the category of the most successful.

Not only is the dish quick and easy to prepare with a minimum of ingredients, but it is also delicious, satisfying, and very healthy. Because the zucchini, from which I made bruschetta today, was accompanied by carrots. And this is so urgent now when we have been through most of Lent and our bodies are starving for nutrients. And the age of the zucchini is not important here.

Fortunately, we can buy this vegetable in the store at almost any time of year. And also zucchini in this version is functional in terms of application. After all, the dish can be standalone, and a side dish, and a salad, and a snack. And it goes well both hot and cold. Here we are providing you some fresh and easy recipe to cook vegetable noodles as follows:

Let’s prepare all the necessary ingredients and utensils for cooking noodles with vegetables. So, let’s boil the noodles. We put them in boiling water and stir. Boil on low heat for 3-4 minutes, then put it in a colander, rinse with cold water, and leave for a while in the colander to drain the water.

STEP 2:

Now let’s chop all the vegetables. Let’s start with the onions. I use red, as it looks beautiful in the dish and has a special sweet flavor. But you can also use regular onions, they are also delicious. So, peel the onion, cut it lengthwise and crosswise, and then thinly slice it into feathers.

Peel carrots, slice into thin long straws.

STEP 4:

Peel the bell peppers from the seeds, removing the stalk. Slice into long thin slices.

Fry the vegetables for literally 2-3 minutes, let them stay crispy.

Then add the previously boiled noodles, pour in the remaining soy sauce and teriyaki sauce. Thoroughly mix all the ingredients. It is quite convenient to do with bamboo sticks. Fry the noodles and vegetables for a few more minutes, stirring the noodles constantly.

STEP 8:

Taste the finished noodles and vegetables, add salt if necessary (the sauces are quite salty, so you probably won’t need salt, I don’t), stir and transfer to serving containers, sprinkle sesame seeds on top.

In my opinion, Udon noodles are the go-to tool for any housewife. It tastes great, keeps for months, and is very quick to make. Plus, it’s versatile. In a few minutes, it can be used to prepare a light diet soup in the Asian style, and a nutritious and hearty dish – fried noodles with lots of vegetables, meat, or seafood.

You can feed a family or a large crowd of hungry guests with this dish, quickly and effortlessly. For me, Udon with squid and vegetables is also a healthy homemade fast food. I keep all of its main ingredients in the pantry, peeled squid, and chopped vegetables in the freezer. When it’s “X” time, all I have to do is take everything out, mix it up, and quickly fry it up in a pan. It takes no more than 10-15 minutes to prepare, and the result is a bright, spicy, and light dish that will suit the taste of any connoisseur of delicious food.

STEP 3:

Prepare the main ingredients of the dish. Slice vegetables and squid into julienne strips. Peel and finely chop garlic and ginger.

STEP 4:

Slice the vegetables and the squid.

STEP 6: 

Boil udon noodles. Heat a frying pan. Add a little vegetable oil. You can use flavored sesame or peanut oil. Add ginger and garlic and stir-fry for a minute. Then add the squid pieces and fry for another minute altogether.

Fry the squid with ginger and garlic

Add the prepared vegetables to the pan. At this point, I take the squid pieces out for a while and transfer them to a separate plate.

STEP 9: 

Roast the vegetables for a few minutes, stirring.

STEP 10: 

Put the vegetables in. Add sauces and sugar. You can experiment with sauces. Leaving soy sauce as a base, add teriyaki, oyster, or Worcester sauce. Pour the sauce in.

STEP 11:

Stir in the vegetables and sauces and add the noodles and fried squid to the pan. Stir and heat everything together for a minute. Place the noodles. Sprinkle the finished dish with a pinch of sesame seeds or chopped green onions, if desired.

Udon with squid and vegetables is ready. Bon appetite!

Wrap Up

Always try to use just the right amount of ingredients so that you can end up with exactly 2 servings and they are eaten in one meal because it tastes so much better that way. Reheating the noodles later will also taste good, but not as good. And also, if you wish, you can exclude, as well as add any vegetables (zucchini, eggplant, green beans, cabbage). This way the noodles will turn out very tasty anyway, but by changing the vegetables, each time is different.
