Cold Kitsune Udon Noodles Recipe

Kitsune udon or soba is noodles topped with stewed aburaage. The noodles can be served hot in winter or chilled in summer.

It is a strange name for noodles, as a kitsune is a fox for Japanese, even though no fox meat is involved. For some reason, the Japanese used to believe that foxes with magical power love aburaage. We also call stewed aburaage stuffed with seasoned rice “oinari-san,” which is another the name for enshrined spirit of foxes with magical power.

I made this using udon noodles, but you can also use soba noodles as well.
