Udon noodles are a staple in Japanese cuisine. These soft, doughy noodles are now available in many supermarkets and specialty stores. Both kids and adults love them because they are fun to eat.

In many locations, green onions are known as scallions.  

Some udon noodles come precooked. If you are using this type, remove the soup from the heat once it comes back to a boil.

This came out really good. I added broccoli, and since we ate it as a main meal, I also added 3oz of tofu for protein.
