I made a version of comfort food for myself, and that would be UDON! I love UDON! A simple noodle, broth, and chili pepper. I love the big noodles. I went over to my local Lao Trading Co. store on 8th Ave So. because they carry the widest variety of Asian Noodles in town. I got a cold case pack of Udon, and skipped in glee all the way home. I love UDON, did I tell you that yet?
The silver package with UDON flakes in it contained freeze dried tofu slices, tampura dots, scallions and nori. There was no directions that I could read on the package, so I dumped ALL the little packages into 2 cups of boiling water all at the same time. I put all the red pepper flakes, all the soup base, all the noodles, and all the freeze dried contents all in at once into the boiling pot for a few minutes. I put the finished soup in a bowl and added a few dots of chili sesame oil Aji. What came out was a very spicy hot soup. I now know that dump all packets except the red pepper flakes, and add those at the end to taste. I love UDON and I loved my bowl of soup!
