Tips for Creamy Mushroom Udon:

  1. Udon Noodles: Use fresh or frozen udon noodles. Fresh udon noodles tend to have a better texture, but I actually like frozen udon noodles for this recipe because they keep for longer. Simply throw them in a bowl with hot water and loosen until they’re separated – they’ll be ready for pasta dishes or stir fries in no time!
  2. Mushrooms: Go for a variety of mushrooms like seasfood, shiitake, cremini, or oyster mushrooms. Use whatever you have on hand!
  3. Cream: If you don’t want to use heavy cream, you can substitute with whole milk or even half and half.
  4. Aromatics: Garlic adds a nice depth of flavor. Sauté them until they’re fragrant.
  5. Broth: Chicken, vegetable or mushroom broth will enhance the mushroom flavor. If you don’t have broth, water works too, but it won’t be as flavorful.
