Here are a few tips to perfect, glossy, meaty noodles that are completely vegan!
Make the Spicy Sauce First
You need the sauce ready to go as soon as your noodles hit the pan. The noodles are basically cooked in boiling water before they even hit the frying pan, so there’s no need to fry them for any length of time. Noodles in, the sauce is – ready to go!
Use a Chunky Vegan Noodle!
This recipe is most satisfying when made with thick, chunky noodles. I like to use udon because they’re so moreish and are made without egg, so are completely vegan.
Cook the Sauce Briefly
The sauce needs only a flash in the pan. If you cook it too long it’ll begin to caramelise and may turn bitter. Just heat it for long enough to thicken up and coat the noodles.
