  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add udon noodles, and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Drain, and place in a serving bowl.

  • In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the green, red, and yellow peppers with green onion and peas. Heat in the microwave until warm, but still crisp. Add to the noodles in the bowl, and pour the dressing over all. Toss to coat everything in dressing, then sprinkle toasted sesame seeds over the top.

Toasting sesame seeds

Toast sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat. Shake pan, or stir occasionally until lightly browned, about 3 minutes.

Delicious! The dressing is very good. You can easily adjust the veggies to suit your tastes. I cut back on the snap peas and added some carrots that I cut into match sticks. Overall very tasty - great side dish! Read More

These were wonderful. I needed to find a recipe I could use Udon noodles with. After doing a search this came up. I added red green and yellow peppers and sesame seeds to garnish. My family (who is very picky) ate it all up! Read More

YUM! I used peapods instead of snap peas (bought the wrong ones) added about 1/3 of a large cucumber cut into thin matchstick pieces and some shredded carrot. Guess you could really use any vegetables that you would put into a stirfry. Next time I will add some leftover chicken or shrimp. Thanks for the recipe Baja! Read More

Both Hubs and I agree these are exceptional and 5-star good. BUT....use the dressing to taste! I only used half of what I made and it was plenty. Other than eliminating the snap peas I stuck to the recipe and it's just as pretty as it is delicious. I just love the flavor of sesame oil! Read More

Teriyaki chicken was on the dinner menu and was looking for a starch to replace the rice I had planned on serving. Happened upon this recipe and thought I'd give it a whirl... WOW am so glad I did. HELPFUL HINT: As with any recipe that calls for dressing always add to taste. This recipe definitely falls under this rule otherwise the noodles will be too oily as others have noted in their reviews. Overall 5 star. Thank you bajathecat for the submission! Read More

This was good was looking for recipes to use udon noodles. Loved the dressing sesame oil was too expensive at my store so i didn't use it. I agree with others that you can use what ever veggies you like. I also added napa cabbage and mushrooms. I don't think iv'e ever used fresh ginger but boy it was good in this. Read More

This is an excellent dish! It's just tangy enough and the sesame seeds balance out the tang of garlic and ginger. I added extra toasted sesame seeds.:D Make sure you don't have too much sauce in proportion to the noodles. Read More

I thought this was a really tasty recipe, especially on this very hot and sticky day. Due to peanut allergies I used canola oil and added a bit of sugar to the dressing. In addition to the vegies listed, I also added cabbage and baby spinach. Leftover chicken helped to make this meal complete. I used four packages of Ramen noodles, which made a lot, but just about all of it was eaten. Gang obviously loved this dish cat and we all thank you! Read More
