Vegan teriyaki sauce is undeniably flavourful. It's great with vegetables, plant-based protein and noodles - we definitely recommend you to master this recipe at home!
100g udon noodles
1 onion, sliced
3 stalks spring onion, sliced
1 red capsicum, sliced
300g mushrooms, sliced (I used combo of white button & shiitake)
1 tablespoon oil
1/4 cup soy sauce (or tamari)
2 teaspoons dark soy sauce
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 tablespoon rice wine vinegar (or white vinegar)
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1 tablespoon cornstarch + 1 tablespoons water (cornstarch slurry)
In a small saucepan on medium-high heat, combine the water, soy sauces, maple syrup, garlic & ginger. Bring to a boil, then add the cornstarch slurry & reduce heat down to a simmer. Cook, whisking as needed, until the teriyaki sauce is glossy & slightly thickened. Adjust seasoning to taste with soy sauce/water. Set aside.
Cook the udon according to packet instructions. Drain & set aside.
Heat up the oil in a wok on high heat, stir-fry the onions & capsicum for 3 mins until slightly tender. Add in the mushrooms + half the Teriyaki sauce & cook for a further 3 mins.
Add in your noodles and the rest of the Teriyaki sauce, toss until all the noodles are coated in sauce.
Stir-fry for a further 5-6 minutes. Add a splash of water every now and then, if needed.
