Taste Buds: Udon Stir-fry


Its cold and wet and well I just wanted some type of chicken noodle soup. Because I am trying to diversify my cooking and what I eat I decided to create a quick soup style udon stir-fry that I could make quickly and snuggle back up in the covers with my book on the couch. I went to Trader Joes to look at all the pretty vegetables that I could add to my stir fry and got a few things that inspired me. What I ended up with when I finally plopped down on the couch and snuggled back to my book, my bowl of warm stir-fry nestled in my lap was a wonderful combination of flavours. I will be making this one again and again for sure.

Salt and pepper to taste
8 oz udon noodles
2 boneless chicken breasts cut crossways into thin strips
1 tablespoon corn starch
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 small red onion thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves thinly sliced
½ napa cabbage thinly shredded
2 cups frozen shelled edamame
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce

1. Cook udon noodles until they are al dente. Drain and rinse under cold water.
2. While the noodles are cooking in a medium bowl toss chopped chicken with the corn starch. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Heat oil in sauce pan and cook chicken until light brown on the outside and cooked on the inside. Cover and set chicken aside.
3. Add the remaining oil to the skillet and heat. Add onion and garlic and cook until softened (1-3 min). Add the shredded cabbage and cook stirring frequently until tender
4. Add edamame, vinegar and soy sauce. Cook for three minutes and then toss in noodles. Heat until edamame are warm (3-5 min).
5. Gently toss in chicken and serve.
