INGREDIENTS

  • 2 packets of Udon Noodles – cooked in hot water for around 10 minutes

  • 1 yellow zucchini, medium sized, spiralized

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place your udon noodles into a large bowl with hot water (just covered) for around 10 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Into a small bowl add all your sauce ingredients, and whisk together till well combined. Set aside.
  3. Prepare your veg by spiralizing the zucchini, slicing the avo, lime and mint! Place your pomegranates, and sesame seeds aside as well!
  4. Once your udon are fully cooked (you can tell by the soft texture) strain them, and add the sauce to this bowl and stir well, or until all the noodles are fully coated!
  5. You can now begin to assemble to your bowl!
  6. I like you place the noodles down first, then the veg and garnish! Play with your styling, and try your best to have fun with it!
  7. You cannot go wrong! Enjoy.
