Sesame Udon Noodles with Roasted Vegetables

Sesame Udon Noodles with Roasted Vegetables

Crazy delicious udon noodle bowl combines roasted Mediterranean vegetables and a toasted sesame tahini sauce. This is a 30-minute vegan/vegetarian recipe. Roasting a sheet pan full of vegetables is absolutely one of the easiest ways to get the sweet flavors of summer produce, anytime of year.

It’s one of my favorite ways to approach vegetable cooking, and there’s nothing simpler! The surprising twist in this recipe is that I created a fusion of two cuisines — Asian and Mediterranean — into one crazy-good bowl. Traditional ratatouille is a humble dish from southern France, a thick hearty stew made with a combo of colorful vegetables. I took my inspiration from that tradition to create the base of this totally yummy bowl. This udon noodle recipe combines robust noodles with a colorful mix of vegetables with a hard-to-stop-licking-the-spoon creamy (vegan) sauce made with tahini and toasted sesame oil. I love the texture of udon noodles. They have a thick, chunky shape with a tender chew, almost like an Italian bucatini pasta.You can make this recipe with any noodle you want, like soba or even spaghetti or rice noodles.



  • 3 tablespoons (45 ml) tahini sauce
  • 3 tablespoons (45 ml) shoyu or tamari sauce
