Method:
  • Cook frozen udon noodles according to package instructions in salted boiling water. Drain and set aside
  • Toss edamame with salt in a bowl
  • Heat oil to 350F and then pour over red chili flakes, sesame seeds, and garlic kept in a medium glass bowl. Garlic should sizzle and brown, stir for 1 minute
  • Now add the peanuts, maple syrup, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and rice vinegar
  • Pour the oil over the noodles and toss well to coat. Then add the scallions, cilantro, peppers, and edamame
  • Serve immediately or chill if needed


Notes:
You can make the sauce and keep half in the fridge. Reserve half the vegetables (peppers, edamame, scallions, and cilantro) and cook only half the noodles. Then making it a second time will be even quicker as the sauce and veggies are ready.
