It’s time for Memories of Meals Past! Today’s edition: homemade Udon noodles in broth. That’s right, I made my own noodles. From scratch! I know – I impressed myself too. *grin*
Actually, it’s not hard at all. Check out this link to find out how to make your own. I will say, make sure to cut the dough finely, as it will become more dumpling-esque the thicker the strands are. And serving them in a homemade broth elevates the noodles from strands of carbs to an actual dish.
The verdict: would I make them again? Well, the DH really enjoyed them, and even took the leftovers for lunch the next day, but they weren’t my favourite. I’m sure I’d make better ones with more practice…but they’re so easy to buy at the grocery store! So I probably shadn’t make many more batches. I will try to perfect my pasta-making skills using my pasta-maker attachment for my mixer, but that’s another post for another day.
