Udon Noodle Stir-fry with Pork and Edamame

After making edamame hummus a few weeks ago, a whole new world of possibilities seemed to open up. I immediately started thinking of more recipes that I could add some edamame too. Enter this quick and easy stir fry. Its loaded with marinated pork, shitake mushrooms, onions, garlic, edamame and my new favorite stir-fry noodle: Udon.

I decided to use Udon noodles for this recipe after trying Udon noodle soup at a Japanese restaurant a few weeks back. These noodles are thick and made with wheat flour, salt and water. You can find them cooked in the refrigerator section but I often find them dried in the Asian food aisle at my local grocery store. From what I hear these noodles are also wonderful served cold in a variety of dishes during the summer, I can’t wait to give it a try!
