This dish has landed squarely on our weekly menu rotation.
I blame my obsessive nature. I'll stumble upon a dynamite dish and then make it over, and over, and over until my family boycotts it for a while.
Udon noodles are the latest crush. They're chubby, versatile, whole-wheat-healthy-deliciousness, and they do an ace job of absorbing the sauce. Love 'em.
Other than the peanut sauce you really don't need a recipe for this. Toss in whatever diced veggies you love and you've got a fabulously easy, healthy and satisfying one-dish dinner--that's vegan/vegetarian too. We've been shifting toward multiple meatless, whole-grain centered meals each week, but I don't think that should mean sacrificing flavor. 'Cause who'd want to live a in world like that? Not I.
This simple peanut sauce is drink-ably good. Not kidding, I'd name my kid after it. Tossed with the stir-fried crisp tender veggies, and Udon noodles, it's loaded with texture and Thai-heaven flava.
Another friendly reminder that healthy can be wicked good. Make this.

Recipe by Bliss From Scratch, adapted from KathEats.com | Printable Version
Remove the fresh cooked Udon noodles from the packaging, discard the seasoning packets. Soak the noodles in a bowl of hot water, soften 5-10 minutes until you can gently pull the noodles apart without tearing them up too much.
While noodles are soaking, prepare the Simple Peanut Sauce (directions below).
Chop fresh vegetables. Heat olive oil in a large non-stick skillet or wok, and stir fry the veggies until just crisp-tender. Toss in the drained noodles and Peanut Sauce, gently stir until heated through. Garnish, serve and enjoy!
Simple Peanut Sauce
Combine all ingredients in a small stock pot over medium heat, whisk until smooth (take care not to over cook, as the sauce will continue to thicken) and serve over tossed noodles.
