Asian Udon Noodle Stir Fry

Fresh udon noodles, savory asian chicken sausage, topped with colorful veggies and coated in a flavorful asian sauce. This recipe is on the table in 20 minutes. It’s made in one skillet, so the clean up is super easy. Perfect for a weeknight dinner.

Ingredient Notes and Health Benefits:

Asian Chicken Sausage: I bought mine from Trader Joe’s, and this sausage goes perfectly with the noodles and sauce in this recipe (pictured below). However, if you don’t have access to a TJ’s, any chicken or pork sausage will work just fine.

Udon Noodles: I love cooking with Udon Noodles! The texture is great and they are so easy to cook – they’re ready in about 3 mins once added to the skillet.

Red Bell Peppers: High in vitamin C, B6 and folate.  They also add great color to this stir fry and are so sweet and yummy!

Green Cabbage: A cruciferous veggie high in vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, manganese, magnesium, potassium, antioxidants, and fiber.

Hoisin Sauce: A popular sauce in asian cuisine, hoisin sauce is a thick dark sauce with a sweet and salty flavor.  It can be found in the asian food aisle of regular grocery stores.

Low Sodium Soy Sauce: If you are gluten free, you can use coconut aminos instead.

Pretty tasty though a bit sweet for me. I added shittakis and one red carrot thinly sliced. Delish!
