Ingredients

  • 1 9.5-ounce package udon noodles
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 medium carrots, sliced
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 15-ounce package extra firm tofu, cubed
  • 1 cup canned light coconut milk, stir well
  • 3 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 small bunch Swiss chard, sliced
  • 1 cup prepared spicy kimchi, chopped*
  • ΒΌ cup peanuts

Garnish (optional):

Instructions

  1. Bring a medium pot of water to boil, and cook noodles according to package directions (do not overcook). Rinse in cold water and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat sesame oil in a wok.
  3. Add onion, carrots, celery, ginger and garlic and stir-fry for 3 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons water and continue to stir-fry for about 7 minutes, until crisp tender.
