Given 3 pkgs of Udon Noodles - what to do?

They're precooked. Was going to just heat and toss on some sriracha sauce (need a vehicle for the sauce - yum!) - but what else can I do with them?

That's also what I was thinking - think I'm going to get the preparations for soup and stir fry - Feel like cooking tonite!

Sounds delicious! Add a bit of garlic and ginger then you can't go wrong!

Some frozen spinach
Some instant dashi or miso soup
Couple of splashes of soy sauce
Some mirin if you have any
A julienne cut leek
Your udon noodles
Crack a small egg over your soup and let stand for a moment.

Good things to add to that: Fish cakes, chicken, tempura, etc.

Let them sit in your file cabinet or cupboard until they're covered in mold?

Get a nice bottle of scotch.

Now take the noodles and warm them up for 17 minutes over medium high heat.

Add 4 tbs ketchup, a dollop of honey, 4 crushed cloves of garlic, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, a dash paprika, a pinch all spice, 1/4 tsp. coriander, 1 stalk of tarragon, 2 tbs. balsamic vinegar and some ginger.

Stir and spoon into a chafing dish and place in the oven at 350 for 25 mintues.

Add some grape jelly and cookie sprinkles.

Now throw all that **** away and drink the scotch.

Buy a Hot Pot and let the good times roll. Throw in some bok choy or other green leaved vegetable and some tofu.

Plausible deniability for the impending court case.

OK - got creative last night.

Sauteed some sliced crimini mushrooms, thinly sliced zucchini, chopped scallion and minced garlic, tossed in some edamame, then some vegetable broth (my own) and at the very end put a big bunch of napa cabbage (chiffanade sliced) and a lot of fresh black pepper.

YUM!

I'm liking these noodles!

(ooo forgot I added baby spinich too to wilt down)

One little precooked package made enough for 4 good sized servings (with all the stuff in it) - but just enough noodles. Think I'll be keeping some of these on hand.
