Here in Orange County, we have a wonderful assortment of restaurants featuring authentic international foods. Udon noodle soup is a favorite, but traditionally these dishes are not vegetarian friendly. Even the vegetable versions that don’t contain chunks of meat are made with beef, chicken or fish stock. I’ve learned to be very specific when I ask about ingredients prior to ordering.
Now, I can make my own udon noodles that are full of flavor and still vegetarian!
