Kitsune Udon


  • 4 servings udon noodles
  • 2 instant dashi packets
  • 6 cups water
  • green onions, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 2 tablespoons sauce
  • 1 package prepared aburaage (fried tofu pouch)


  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 mirin and soy sauce to broth and stir.
  2. In a large pot, bring water to a boil and prepare udon noodles according to package directions.
  3. Bring another pot of water to a boil. Blanch the fried tofu pouches for 1-2 minutes. This removes some of the excess oil from the tofu.
  4. Divide noodles across 4 bowls and top with green onions and aburaage. Pour broth over the noodles.
