    Cabbage and shiitake udon noodles

    This speedy, nutritious noodle dish makes an easy supper. Cook double quantities and pack up the leftovers for lunch the next day.

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes

    Serves: 2

    Ingredients

    1 tbsp sunflower oil
    1 onion, thinly sliced
    ½ savoy cabbage, quartered, tough stalks removed, shredded
    150g fresh shiitake mushrooms, sliced
    4 tsp soy sauce
    2 tsp mirin
    1 tsp Japanese rice vinegar
    275g fresh udon noodles
    30g fresh root ginger, cut into matchsticks
    ½ tsp sesame oil

    Method

    1. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan over a medium heat. Once hot, add the onion and fry, stirring often, for 5 minutes until it starts to soften and become burnished at the edges. Tip in the cabbage and mushrooms and stir-fry for 5 minutes more.

    2. Pour in the soy sauce, mirin and vinegar along with the udon noodles. Stir well. Once the noodles are warmed through, take off the heat. Divide between 2 plates, scatter over the ginger and sprinkle with the sesame oil.
