A common component of popular Japanese dishes, udon is thick wheat flour-based noodles; often served as part of a noodle soup, stir fry or with tempura. These thick, sweet and sticky noodles act as the perfect receptacle for any flavoursome sauce you can throw its way.

Are udon noodles vegan?

Generally yes, udon is vegan-friendly as it’s simply made from wheat flour and water. They’re one of the few types of noodles that don’t commonly contain egg. However, it’s always worth double-checking an ingredients list or asking at a restaurant to make sure.

Has all this talk about udon noodles kick-started a craving? Then have a look at this recipe for our teriyaki udon – that’s dinner sorted.

Be sure to keep these plant-based questions coming our way.
