Udon and Vegetable Stir-Fry 3-Ways

Stir-fry is the ultimate ’20-minute’ meal that you can easily get on the table whether you are dining alone or feeding your whole family. It’s quick, it’s simple… and it’s delicious!

However, much of the flavour of this dish comes from a thoughtfully created sauce that brings in a satisfying and more-ish combination of sweet and salty flavours. You will learn how to make 3 different sauces:

  • Sticky Sweet-Chilli Sauce
  • Garlicky Peanut and Chilli Sauce
  • Shoyu and Sesame Glaze

Much of the ‘packet’ sauces available in the supermarket does the same job… but you’ll find it contains a lot of refined sugar, a lot of salt, and other artificial ingredients. These recipes will use only a handful of quality ingredients and no refined sugar.

In this class, you will learn:

  • Three different stir-fry sauces that you can use on your stir-fry.
  • How to cut your vegetables such that they cook quickly in the wok, ready to be served on the table in no time.
  • How to introduce garnishes to elevate the flavour and presentation of your stir-fry
