In many parts of Asia, the brightest full moon in autumn is a worthy cause for celebration, known as the Mid Autumn Festival. Particularly in Japan, this is the time of year when Moon Viewing Noodles (Tsukimi Udon) are traditionally prepared and eaten by families outdoors, while contemplating the full moon.

Ingredients for Moon Viewing Noodles


Method

Bring the water to boil, then add the dried Udon noodles. Boil until the noodles become soft, then drain the excess water and divide the noodles evenly between four serving bowls. (Alternatively, you could buy the ready cooked Udon noodles and skip this step entirely.)

While the noodles are cooking, prepare the broth. Bring the four cups of filtered water to the boil, adding the Mirin (Japanese Cooking wine), dark soy sauce, and finely sliced ginger.

Crack the first egg into a teacup and gently slide it into the broth for poaching. Repeat the process with the remaining eggs (one egg per serving bowl).

When the eggs are poached to your preference, use a slotted spoon to remove each one and set to one side for a moment.

Add the cooked broth to the awaiting noodles, before delicately adding one egg (the full moon) to each bowl. Sprinkle with chopped shallots and seaweed flakes (optional) and serve immediately. Perhaps you could recite some moon related poetry or play some moonlight music while you slurp? Enjoy this simple and nourishing meal and Happy Mid Autumn Festival.
