Creamy Asian Udon Noodle Bowl with Walnuts

  • Author: Maria Koutsogiannis
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 10 mins
  • Yield: 1
  • Category: Udon Noodle Bowl
  • Cuisine: Plant Based

Ingredients

  • 1 package of Udon Noodles
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Yellow Zucchini, spiralized
  • 1 baby cucumber, spiralized
  • 6 sprigs of asparagus
  • 1/4 cup of walnuts
  • 1 Spring onion, chopped for garnish
  • Sauce for noodles:
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp hoisin
  • Sauce for Avo Cucumber Salad:
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 tsp rice syrup (or honey if you find a good local soure)
  • pinch of chillies
  • For Asparagus:
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Bring water to a boil in a kettle
  2. Remove your udon noodles from their package and place into a large bowl
  3. Pour boiled water into bowl and let them sit for around 5 minutes before stirring
  4. Now to cook your asparagus. Put Olive oil into a medium sized sauce pan and let it heat. Once hot add your asparagus, and season lightly with salt and pepper. Cook till golden brown, but do not over cook. Set your asparagus aside.
  5. Now prepare your veg. Spiralize your Zucchini, and cucumber. Set aside.
  6. Cut an avocado in half, I sliced up one half nicely, and used the other as a salad bowl for the cucumber!
  7. Now go back to your Udon noodles and strain them from the hot water, and place them back into the large bowl.
  8. Now add your soy and hoisin to the noodles and stir well you can set it aside one last time…;)
  9. Now make your cucumber salad dressing by adding the hot sauce, honey, and chilies to a bowl and stir gently.
  10. You are now at the stage where you can begin to assemble your bowl.
  11. I first added the noodles, then the spiralized zucchini… and then basically just added whatever I wanted to afterwards.
  12. The key here though is to scoop out a bit of the avocado from the half that is not sliced to make room for the cucumber and dressing but other then that it is all really simple and easy!
  13. Just make sure to finish this beauty off by adding walnuts!
  14. Enjoy!
