INSTRUCTIONS

1
Cook the noodles

Bring large pot of salted water to a boil. Add noodles and cook until soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain noodles and rinse under cool water to stop cooking process. Set pot aside for step 3.

2
Make the orange sauce

Combine orange juice, sugar, sesame oil, tamari, vinegar, and just half the cornstarch in small bowl and whisk to dissolve sugar. (TIP: Keep the remaining cornstarch for your own use.)

3
Cook the aromatics

Heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil in same pot over medium heat. Add broccoli, cashews, and a pinch of salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden brown in places, 3 to 5 minutes. Add sesame seeds, garlic, ginger, and just half the Thai chile and cook until fragrant, 1 to 3 minutes. (4-serving meal: use ΒΌ cup vegetable oil) (TIP: Add more Thai chile if you prefer more spice.)

4
Finish and serve

Reduce heat to medium-low, add cooked noodles and orange sauce to pot, and toss to coat. Cook until sauce thickens slightly, 1 to 3 minutes. Divide orange udon noodles with broccoli and gingered cashews between bowls and serve with orange wedges. Enjoy! (TIP: Squeeze more orange juice into the sauce if you prefer.)
