Karin’s Fabulous Stir Fried Udon Recipe
(or as my son’s friends used to call it when they were kids, “Fried Worms”)

1/2 package of udon or soba noodles (whole wheat or white)
3 T tamari or soy sauce
2 T brown or white rice vinegar
1 T light or dark sesame oil
Red pepper flakes to taste
Sesame seeds, green onions for garnish (I used mint in the photo, because that is all I had in the house…turned out pretty tasty!!!)

Boil the noodles until al dente, and then rinse under cold water. Add tamari, rice vinegar, sesame oil and red pepper flakes to the empty pot, and heat to a boil. Drain the noodles and add to the pot. Stir until liquid has evaporated and coated the noodles. Serve with sesame seeds and green onions (or mint).
