Kitsune udon is a delicious dish made with thick udon noodles served in a dashi based soup stock with a large piece of fried tofu. Kitsune is named after the Japanese fox, who according to legend is a huge fan of abura-age, the deep fried tofu that gives all the flavour to this great food. This dish is easy to make and can even be made with soba if you prefer for… you guessed it, Kitsune Soba!

How To Prepare

  1. Pour some boiling water over abura-age to remove any excess oil. Set aside.

  2. Pour 250ml tsuyu into a saucepan with 500ml water. Heat up over a medium heat.

  3. Remove soup from heat just before it boils and add abura-age. Return to heat and allow to simmer for approximately 10 minutes before adding udon.

  4. Once noodles have simmered for a further 10 minutes, pour some into a bowl with a little of the soup and a piece of the abura-age. Garnish with shichimi chilli powder and sliced spring onions.
