I have to admit I'm a Asian food addict, I really love it! There are two recipes I prepare every week, this super easy vegan fried rice and these vegan stir fried Udon noodles.
This recipe is ready in only 15 minutes, it's light, healthy, delectable and you're gonna love it, I promise! Udon noodles are made with wheat flour and salt and tamari (or soy sauce) is very salty, so you don't need to add any salt.
You can use your favorite veggies, I usually add the vegetables I have in my fridge. I use ground ginger because it lasts longer than the fresh variety, but if you prefer, you can use fresh ginger too, although you need to keep in mind fresh ginger tends to deliver a more intense flavor, so you need to add less.
If you are a celiac or you are following a gluten-free diet, you can use corn pasta or any other gluten-free alternative. If you're a vegan be careful because many noodles are made with egg.
I cook Asian dishes in a wok, I bought it at Ikea, it's cheap and works very well, so if you love this kind of recipes, I recommend you to buy one. If you don't have a wok, you can use a skillet too, your noodles will be delicious too.
This recipe is perfect for summer because you only need 15 minutes to prepare it and you don't need to use the oven. It's a great alternative to junk or pre-packaged food, because it's a super quick recipe and it's much healthier.
If you prefer a fat-free version, you can remove the oil and cook the veggies with water and tamari or soy sauce. I always cook with extra virgin olive oil and avoid refined oils, they are not healthy at all and it's fairly resistant to the heat, although I prefer to use the least amount of oil on my dishes.
If you love simple, easy, healthy, delicious, Asian recipes, you should try these vegan stir fried Udon noodles, they won't disappoint you!

I upped the spice level by adding 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes. GINGER-if you freeze a whole piece & place in baggie & put in freezer it will last a long time and much easier to cut than fresh. Same goes for whole garlic. I use a lot of both so found it much easier.
Hi Mary! Thanks a lot for your comment 🙂
Thanks for sharing this!
I add a little bit of sesame oil and black pepper at the end and became quite good!
Hi Suzana! You're so welcome 🙂 Sounds amazing!
It was quick & easy to make. It was delicious. Only down fall was that I cooked my noodles too long. But I would make it again. Thanks for sharing the recipe. My daughter love it too
Hi Annie! You're so welcome 🙂 So glad you enjoyed it!

I sooo wanted to love this recipe, so quick, so easy... however I felt it was a bit lacking in flavor. The overwhelming taste was just salt. However the great thing about recipes like this is they're super easy to modify to your personal taste. I added some sriracha for heat, more ginger and some garlic for flavor and some chopped cabbage to cut the saltiness and viola! A fantastic stir fry for my taste buds. Thanks for sharing such a quick, easy idea for a vegan meal!
Hi Sarah! You're so welcome 🙂
These noodles were absolutely delicious! Will be making these more often. 🙂
Hi Marsha! Thanks a lot. So glad you liked them 🙂

Can this meL be frozen
Hi Tina! I've never frozen myself, so I can't help you, sorrry!
Last few skint days of the month......so I made this with frozen peppers and peas, and my last mushroom and half a carrot plus garlic and onion (just for me). Cooked as your recipe with tamari and dried ginger and the wholewheat noodles waiting in the cupboard. Really very tasty and delicious and it genuinely takes no time at all. Gorgeous food from basically my scraps. Tomorrow it's stir fried rice. Yum. Thank you!
Hi Sara! Sounds AMAZING 🙂 So glad you liked it!
Really tasty and easy to make. It was a hit with everyone.
Hi Charn! So glad you liked it so much 🙂

This looks delicious! Could other vegetables be substituted for the peppers? If so, what would you recommend? And would I use the same amount?
Hi Adriana! Thanks a lot 🙂 This recipe always works, so feel free to add any veggies you want. I'd add the same amount. Have a nice day!
