UDON worry, be happy!
There’s no other way to put it: when it comes to preparing lunches, I am so LAZY!
Yes, I admit it: I’ve never been too fond of lunch. Even as a little girl, lunchtime at school just felt like a bore. There was nothing exciting about reaching into my lunch box, only to find a cold sandwich, a juice box, and packaged snacks.
I am still the same way today. Lunch cuts right in the middle of my working hours – and when you work as much as I do, time is precious! I can’t be bothered to prepare a nutritious, delicious meal – or can I?!
Udon Noodles to the Rescue!
Okay, you wouldn’t believe this – but I only prepared my own udon noodles when I developed this recipe for Peanut Sauce Udon Noodles.
So shocking, right?! And boy, have I been missing out! Udon noodles are SO easy to prepare. All you have to do is follow the package’s instructions – which normally involves boiling them for 3 minutes, then strain.
So. Darn. Simple!
And this is why I think it my Peanut Sauce Udon Noodles are a great option for lunch. It’s a warm, delicious, easy-to-prepare meal. It takes minutes to whip-up, which is exactly what we need right in the middle of our work day.
