    From the Test Kitchen

    Chefs! We’re bringing you a series of recipes designed with ease of cooking and cleanup in mind, but without sacrificing the incredible flavors you’ve come to expect from a classic Blue Apron meal. Hearty, delightfully chewy udon noodles are a comfort food staple perfect for pairing with umami-rich sauces, like the combo of black bean sauce, soy glaze, and sesame oil that we’re using in this dish. For a final kick, we’re stirring in fresh lime zest and juice.

    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Remove the noodles from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores. Halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Peel the carrots; thinly slice on an angle. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the lime to get 1 teaspoon. Halve the lime crosswise; squeeze the juice into a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the soy glaze, sesame oil, black bean sauce, and 1/4 cup of warm water.
