This recipe is an American take on the Chinese Shaxian noodles recipe. I used Japanese udon, because I love the texture, but they can be replaced with your favorite noodles.
Here's the peanut butter udon recipe!
1 portion udon (I used the pre-cooked ones to be found in boiling water for 1 minute)
1 large spoonful of peanut butter
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon hot sauce (I used tobanjan)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 crushed garlic
1 piece grated ginger
finely sliced spring onion (only the green part)
Prepare the creamy sauce by mixing the peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, hot sauce, sugar, garlic, ginger and a little hot water in a bowl.
Cook the udon and drain them.
Mix the udon with the sauce. Garnish with crumbled peanuts, sesame seeds and spring onion.
