2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Start the tempeh

Bring a medium [large] sauce pot of water to a boil for the udon.
  • Crumble or cut the tempeh into ¼-inch pieces.
In a medium [large] frying pan, combine the tempeh and 1 cup [2 cups] water and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain the tempeh and transfer to a plate.
While the tempeh cooks, prepare the pickled cucumber.


Pickle the cucumber

  • Peel the cucumber, if desired; cut the cucumber into 2-inch matchsticks.
In a medium bowl, combine the cucumber and rice vinegar. Season with salt and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the udon.


Cook the udon

To the pot of boiling water, add the udon and cook, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, until just tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain the udon, reserving ½ cup [1 cup] cooking water, and return the udon and reserved water to the pot.
While the udon cooks, prepare the mustard greens.


Prep the greens; finish the dish

  • Strip the leaves from half the mustard greens and cut lengthwise into thin ribbons. Save the remaining greens for another use.
To the pot with the udon, add the mustard green ribbons, tempeh, fermented black soybean paste, and as much sambal oelek as you like. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the greens are wilted and the liquid has thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat.
Using a slotted spoon or tongs, transfer the cucumber to a plate. Stir the pickling liquid into the pot with the udon and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the udon, tempeh, and greens to individual bowls, garnish with the pickled cucumber, and serve.
