That’s funny, because my first experience with udon, I put EIGHT tiny wooden spoonfuls into my broth. My Japanese friends looked on wordlessly, choking back laughter, until I had my first taste. It was all really very funny, and the udonya proprietor was kind enough to replace my bowl of noodles, into which I put precisely ONE tiny spoonful!

Cabbage is the best part of it. Do you use courgette as well??

I've had a little bottle of that for years. I like to sprinkle it on top of lots of my Asian dishes. I like spicy and husband doesn't, so that works well.
I need to buy more, as there's only a tiny bit left after at least 10 years.

I think I go through a bottle of that like every other month. The little bottles are rather cheap at $1.75 each.

I know you cook a lot more Asian than I do RF. I really enjoy the complex flavor of it in moderation, especially on Orange Chicken I often prepare from Trader Joe's.

I've been using it for quite a while. I even mix my own. The Japanese use it like we use salt & pepper.
The real seasoning uses " #@% seeds" in the recipes! (hemp).

I know that a courgette is a veggie that’s called by a different name here in the States, but I forgot which one. Zucchini? Eggplant? If it’s either of those, then no. Just cabbage, or if I’m lazy a packaged coleslaw mix, which has carrots, too.

Thanks. You know how long I’ll remember that, right?

Oh I know! Both “courgette” and “zucchini” have “c” in them. “Aubergine” and “eggplant” don’t. Now all I have to do is remember the mnemonic!

If it helps, Joel, aubergine is also the French word for purple. Traditionally, eggplant are purple, although there are white ones that are ornamental.

As far as courgette=zucchini? It would be easier if a corgi were a longer dog.
