- Red onion
- Red pepper
- Ginger (15g)
- 4 x Spring onion
- Soy sauce (30ml)
- Chestnut mushrooms (160g, prepacked)
- 400g udon noodles
- 2 x pickled ginger sachets (8g)
- Henderson's Relish (15ml)
- Black sesame seeds (5g)
- Sesame seeds (5g)

Slice the chestnut mushrooms. Deseed the red pepper (scrape the seeds and pith out with a teaspoon) and cut into thin strips. Peel and finely slice the red onion.
Peel (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate) the ginger. Trim, then slice the spring onions into large, bite-sized pieces.
Heat a wide, large based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil over a high heat. Once hot, add the sliced mushrooms, red onion and red pepper with a pinch of salt and cook for 3-4 min or until starting to caramelise.
Once caramelised, add the chopped spring onion and cook for 2-3 min further.
Add the chopped ginger and cook for 1 min or until fragrant.
Add the udon noodles and cook for 3-4 min or until warmed through.
Add the soy sauce and Henderson’s relish and cook for 1-2 min further until the noodles are fully coated in the sauce. Season with a grind of black pepper – this is your yasai yaki udon.
Serve the yasai yaki udon and garnish with the white & black sesame seeds, fried onions and pickled ginger. Enjoy!
