Japanese udon is an amazing type of noodle. Long, thick and deliciously chewy, udon noodles are most often served in a hot broth. But brothless yaki udon is also a popular preparation, and we’re taking inspiration from it here. A stir-fry of vegetables, noodles and sauce, yaki udon is a little cooler—perfect for the late spring weather. In this dish, we’re cooking the noodles and vegetables separately, then mixing them together at the end with sweetly tangy teriyaki sauce.
