by Yejiskitchenstories

This easy vegetable yaki udon comes together in less than 15 minutes— making it the PERFECT quick meal. You need a few pantry staples and any vegetables you have on hand, frozen veggies work great too! It’s simple but so satisfying!

What you’ll need to make this Vegetable Yaki Udon:

  • Udon noodles: these types of noodles are chewy, and bouncy, and make the perfect base to soak up all the yummy flavors of the stir fry. Udon noodles can be found in the freezer aisle in most Asian grocery stores.
  • Vegetables: for this recipe, I used a mixture of bell peppers, carrots, onion, and mushrooms. Feel free to use any other vegetable you have on hand. Frozen vegetables work great for this recipe too!
  • Soy sauce: This pantry staple is the main ingredient for the base of the sauce. It’s definitely a must-have!
  • Honey: for a bit of sweetness to balance out all the flavors.
  • Oyster sauce: this gives that extra umami flavor, however, you can substitute it with a vegetarian oyster sauce or hoisin sauce to make this recipe vegetarian!
  • Neutral oil: for stir-frying the veggies!
  • Green onions: this is optional, but I love the flavor of green onions and they also add a nice pop of color to the dish!

How to make Vegetable Yaki Udon:

These veggie stir-fry udon noodles are so simple and versatile! You can add any kind of veggies or protein to make it a heartier meal!

  1. Cook your veggies. In a large skillet, heat the oil on medium-high heat. Saute the onions until they become slightly translucent. Add the bell peppers, carrots, and mushrooms and cook until just fragrant.
  2. Cook your udon. In a separate pot, bring water to a boil and cook the udon noodles for 1-2 minutes, or just until thawed. Strain the udon noodles and add them to the skillet with the veggies.
  3. Add your sauce. To the skillet, add the soy sauce, oyster sauce, and honey (or another sweetener of choice, agave works great too). Stir to evenly coat the veggie and noodles in the sauce. Cook for another 1-2 minutes, the vegetables should remain crisp.
  4. Serve hot and enjoy!
