Ketchup Udon Noodles With Seafood Sticks and Veggies (1 Year+)
This dish is a great way to pack a meal with vegetables and protein. My boy loves this so I batch cook it often.
- 1 Pack Udon Noodles Vacuum pack containing fresh udon
- 4 Seafood Sticks
- 1 Carrot About 30g
- 1 Small Onion About 60g
- 5 Little Gem Leaves About 60g
- 1 tbsp Oil Rapeseed/Sunflower or similar
- 2 tbsp Water
- 1 tbsp Ketchup I use 'Stokes' because it has less sugar & salt
- 1 Drizzle of Toasted Sesame Oil
Lets Get Cooking!
In a large frying pan/wok, heat the oil and fry the onions on a low heat until they start to soften. About 4 mins. Putting the lid on and letting them steam a little helps to soften them
Add the carrot and fry for 2 mins with the lid on
Add the seafood sticks and lettuce and fry for about 2 mins
Add the udon and water. Turn the heat up to medium and put the lid of for 2 mins to let everything steam
Add the ketchup, mix well and serve!
Can be frozen as soon as it has cooled down. Consume within 3 months.
Tailor the dish for your baby or for adults:
Keeping It Clean - Don’t fry the veggies with oil. Microwave them for 2 mins, add to the frying pan, then continue to follow the instructions. Instead of ketchup, use tomato puree with no salt or sugar.
For Adults - Add the sesame oil step at the end and a sprinkle of chilli powder/flakes for a kick.
Make it Vegetarian - Leave out the seafood sticks and add in some more vegetables like beansprouts, grated courgette, anything you want!
