INSTRUCTIONS

1
Crisp the apricot seitan

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for the udon noodles. Heat 1 tsp vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add seitan and cook, tossing occasionally, until browned in places, 6 to 8 minutes. Add tamari, just half the rice vinegar, apricot preserves, ginger, and a pinch of salt and toss to coat. Turn heat to medium-low and cook until seitan is sticky, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn off heat and leave in the pan to keep warm.

2
Cook udon

Add udon noodles to the boiling water and cook until tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain noodles and keep them in the colander without rinsing them. TIP: Noodles will separate on their own as they cook; don’t force them apart.

3
Cucumber salad

Add remaining rice vinegar, sesame oil, cucumber, and a pinch of salt and pepper to a small bowl and toss to combine.

4
Serve

Divide the udon noodles and sticky apricot seitan between bowls. Top with cucumber salad. Drizzle any remaining dressing from the cucumbers over the noodles and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Tuck in!
