Before you begin...
Get all your ingredients and equipment ready
Skim through these steps, then wash your fruit and veg
Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)
Now, let's get started!
Deseed the Romano pepper[s] (scrape the seeds and pith out with a teaspoon) and cut into thin strips
Top, tail, peel and grate the carrot[s]
Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a high heat
Once hot, add the sliced Romano pepper and ginger & garlic paste to the pan with a pinch of salt and cook for 1-2 min or until the pepper starts to soften
Meanwhile, heat a separate, large wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid), with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat
Once hot, add the sesame seeds then crack the eggs into the pan, over the sesame seeds
Cook, covered for 2-3 min or until done to your liking – these are your sesame fried eggs
Once the pepper has softened, add the udon noodles and grated carrot to the pan and cook for 1-2 min or until the carrot has softened slightly
Tip: Gently separate the noodles with a fork!
Whilst everything is cooking, add the soy sauce to a bowl with the mirin, sriracha, cornflour and 4 tbsp [8 tbsp] cold water and mix until smooth – this is your spicy soy sauce
Once the carrot has softened, add the edamame beans and spicy soy sauce to the pan and cook for 2-3 min until everything is warmed through and fully coated in the sauce – this is your veggie udon stir-fry
Serve the veggie udon stir-fry with the sesame fried egg on top
Tear over the coriander and top with a grind of black pepper and any remaining sesame seeds from the pan
