From Plant-Based on a Budget: If you’re a noodle fan like us, then this Udon with Spicy Tofu & Greens will become one of your favorites. Prepared with protein-packed tofu, nutrient-filled greens, satiating noodles, and comforting broth, this dish is full of yummy and nutritious goodness! Let’s dive right in!
When it comes to noodle dishes like this one, the key to its success is in the richness and intensity of the flavor of its broth. If the broth is delicious, everything added to it, like the tofu and noodles will be coated with the same flavors. The saltiness of the soy sauce, the nuttiness of the sesame oil, and the spiciness of the red pepper flakes will ensure an irresistible and comforting soup.
These thick wheat noodles are a staple in Japanese cuisine and the number one noodle used in brothy soups. Similar to soba noodles (but much thicker), they are perfect for slurping your delicious soup.
Along with soups, udon noodles can be used in stir-fries and tempura dishes. Have you tried them before? We encourage you to give this super delicious and comforting Udon with Spicy Tofu & Greens a try!
