    1. In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, rice vinegar, peanut oil, sesame oil and hot chilli sauce. Close the lid, and shake vigorously to blend. Set aside.
    2. 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.
    3. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the peppers with spring 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.

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

    This was beautiful! I made this and loved it. Very easy to prepare and will definitely be having it again!  -  19 Jul 2012


    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!  -  17 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    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!  -  30 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
