Soy Based Udon Noodle Bowl with Tofu and Mushrooms
(5)
"Udon noodle bowl🤤 - a super simple, slippery & chewy noodle dish that we had for lunch earlier. It was soo delicious that I had to share it with you guys😁. When shopping for udon noodles, try to find those with simple ingredients such as wheat flour, water, salt (mine had tapioca starch). I made mine with a little more sauce so I can slurp it up easily (swipe to see noodles IRL😉). Happy weekend, friends.⁣🤗"
