Nabeyaki Udon



  • 4 servings udon noodles
  • 2 instant dashi packets
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 carrot, sliced
  • green onions, chopped
  • baby spinach
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons shiro miso paste
  • 4 eggs


  1. Boil 6 cups water in a medium sauce pan. As water starts to boil, add dashi packets and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove packets. Add garlic, mirin, soy sauce, and miso paste to broth and stir.*
  2. In a large pot, bring water to a boil and prepare udon noodles according to package directions. You can soft boil your eggs at the same time by cooking your eggs with the noodles.
  3. In another pot, bring water to a boil and cook carrots for 6 minutes. In last minute of cooking, add spinach.
  4. Divide noodles across 4 bowls and top with eggs, carrots, spinach, and green onions. Pour broth over the noodles.

* Note: Nabeyaki udon broth typically does not contain miso paste. I add it to the broth because I prefer miso broth to regular dashi broth.
