Fried Udon Noodles

These noodles come from the Superhero recipes section of Alicia Silverstone’s “The Kind Diet,” which EVERYONE SHOULD READ.  Her book is super approachable and gives facts, figures, and adorable anecdotes on why meat, dairy, white sugar and processed foods are so bad for the animals/the planet/our health!  She’s very intelligent and engaging and I mayyy have a crush on her.  http://www.thekindlife.com/  Go to her website for more recipes, ideas and discussion.

This dish was super easy to make, quick, and took very few ingredients, which I’ve been needing lately because I haven’t had much time.

You’ll use:

  • 1 eight oz package udon noodles
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 c sliced green cabbage
  • 1 c half moon onion slices
  • 2 tsp chopped garlic
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1.5 tbsp paprika

Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Add the noodles and cook until al dente, drain.

While the noodles are cooking, heat one tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the cabbage and stir, about 15 minutes.  Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat in a separate pan.  Add the onion, garlic, salt and paprika and cook until the onions become translucent (or reddish translucent because of the paprika).  Add the onions and noodles to the skillet with the cabbage, and cook until heated through.

See! So simple. And while not the most flavorful dish, it still tastes good and fills you up!
