Vegetable Udon Noodle Stir fry With spicy peanut sauce.

I absolutely love Stir fries so I decided to make this quick and easy Vegetable Udon noodle stir fry with a Spicy peanut sauce. The possibilities are endless of what you can add to the sauce but I used what I already had in my trusted cupboards.
If you like stir fries I'm sure you'll love this recipe :)


1 head of broccoli (steamed florets)
1 sliced onion
1 large carrot chopped into matchsticks
sliced mushrooms ( I used 6 chestnut mushrooms)
1 clove of garlic or garlic powder 
soy sauce
1 tsp English mustard
3 Tbsp of smooth natural peanut butter
Chili flakes as needed
Sriracha as needed or any hot sauce.
1 packet of Udon noodles
Warm water to adjust the thickness of the sauce.
Salt ( just a pinch)
Pepper ( as needed)
1 tbs of vegetable oil for sauteing 

Method and preparation:
Steam the broccoli florets until tender but not too soft.
Chop the veggies and set them aside.

Now prepare the spicy peanut sauce.
Add 3 Tbs of smooth natural peanut butter into a bowl, give it a quick stir to loosen it up a little bit.
Now add a few splashes of soy sauce, a few chili flakes, Garlic powder, Sriracha, English mustard and a little warm water and gently mix it to a paste.
Add more water as needed to adjust the thickness of the sauce.
Do a taste test and add more of the ingredients if needed.

Now prepare your your noodles.

Whilst your noodles are cooking, In a large wok or pan, add a little vegetable oil and stir fry the onions, carrot and mushrooms.
Ones the onion is tender, add in the broccoli and give it a mix.
Add a pinch of salt and pepper and stir .

Now add in the spicy peanut sauce and stir it through the vegetables.

Drain the noodles and add to the noodles and gently mix through.
If you feel that the stir fry is too dry, feel free to add a splash of water or soy sauce to it.
Heat gently and serve and enjoy :)

I hope you try this recipe out, It's delicious.
This sauce can also be used as a dip :)
