An udon worthy of rue Sainte-Anne

Soupe Nouilles Udon

This udon soup is “Kyoto style” because it contains two ingredients that are specialties of this city: dashi and aburaage (fine fried tofu). The thick curry broth and fried tofu go well with the sweetness of the scallion.

Preparation: 10 minutes

Cooking: 15 minutes

Put the aburaage in a colander and pour boiling water over it to get rid of its oil . Cut each slice into 8 strips.
Heat the dashi in a saucepan over medium heat.

Bring water to a boil in a saucepan and cook the noodles according to the package directions. Drain them.

Pour this mixture into the dashi , mix well. Simmer for 2 minutes until thickened.

Add the drained udon noodles , scallion and heat.
