The Challenge: Udon Noodle Stirfry

Udon noodles are definitely my favorite noodle of the Japanese family. This dish is so simple to make but packs an amazing taste and its complemented with delicious udon noodles. It is honestly such a simple dish. You'll love it! It has a great blend of crunchy veggies, soft decadent udon noodles, and a strifry sauce that is to die for. Yum!!

The sauce is really what makes this dish. A blend of cashew butter, chili garlic sauce, lime, truffle oil, liquid aminos, a bit of coconut sugar, and some walnut oil. This blend makes for an absolutely gorgeous velvety spiced sauce that you will want to pour on every dish its so good. It really takes this dish over the top.

Udon noodles are a great thick noodle that are sticky yummy. I found them frozen at a local Asian grocery store, but they are typically at most grocers. If you have an Asian grocery store, they will definitely have multiple kinds but even like your local Whole Foods or higher end grocer will have them. Get a pack ... you'll want them every night!

I call this better than takeout because well its so much healthier, so much tastier, and honestly almost as easy as ordering takeout. The dish is just some chopping, frying up veggies, and blending a sauce. Bam! Done!

I ate every bite and wanted more more more! Let's get into it.
