Veganomicon Curried Udon Noodle Stir-Fry

This was one of our dinners last week. It was the delicious Curried Udon Noodle Stir-Fry from Veganomnicon. It was an impulse decision to make it, so I used a packet simply called "Gluten" which I had bought from the White Jade Lotus Vegetarian Supermarket, in place of the seitan cutlets. I simmered it in a bit of soy sauce and pinch of sugar. I swapped the broccoli for carrot and beans. The younger two children did not fancy the smell of the curry sauce, so they ate theirs without sauce.

This was the first time I had made a brown roux. I have made white sauces before, but have never used a darker roux. For some reason I thought that it would be hard, but it was easier than I thought. I will try various New Orleans recipes with confidence now.

This is a really tasty recipe. We enjoyed the savoury curry sauce. The leftovers were even better the next day for lunch.


  1. I love udon noodles, they are so fat and chewy I could eat them every day.

  2. They're my favourite noodles too!

  3. That looks really good. I totally agree with you guys, udon noodles are the best.

  4. Yours looked so good, I decided to make it last week. Mine doesn't look as good as yours, though. I didn't do the sauce correctly and my noodles broke up on me. May have to try again.
