Udon with Gingered Peanut Sauce

August 06, 2013

This appetizer is quick and easy to make. It is ready to serve in the time it takes to cook and cool the udon. Turn it into a main dish by adding sautéed tempeh or tofu.

Servings 6 to 8

Ingredients

  • 8 ounce Clearspring Udon
  • 6 scallions, cut into thin diagonal slices
  • 1 small cucumber, cut into thin matchsticks
  • 2 tablespoons lightly toasted black and white sesame seeds

For peanut sauce

Method

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil. Add the udon noodles and cook 10 minutes, or according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  2. Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Stir until well blended.
  3. Place the cooled noodles in individual serving bowls. Drizzle with the sauce, garnish with cucumbers and scallions, and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Variations

  • Top with chopped pickles or shredded nori.
  • For a “sesame” version, reverse the ratio of peanut butter and tahini.
  • Add julienned carrots or daikon radish.
  • Spice it up with 1 or 2 drops of extra-hot sesame oil or a sprinkle of cayenne pepper.

I love this hot, soothing miso soup as a pick-me up at any time of the day. Simply pop the ingredients in a tea cup, top up with hot water, done! Or, bring them to work portioned up and ready to go – perfect for meal prep. You can vary this recipe indefinitely, just include something a little spicy or acidic to lift the salty miso. I like a few spoons of oats in mine to make it a little more substantial, almost like rice!

No-bake Matcha 'Brownies'
No-bake Matcha 'Brownies'

March 28, 2018

Matcha is one of my favourite foods! I love its flavour and colour as well as its subtly uplifting effect. It tastes amazing in sweets so here I've used it as I would cacao to make indulgent little brownie bites. The oats give creaminess and make the bites lighter, rice malt syrup adds a slight chewiness and miso rounds everything off beautifully. Just as good popped into your bag or lunchbox to keep you going, or with a cup of tea.
