Sesame noodles

June 19, 2009


One of my favorite comfort foods especially in the hot summer time is cold sesame noodles. Although one of my favorite brands is Annie Chuns’s, recently, I’ve been more willing to make my own dressing and noodles!

I used rice noodles- they cook really fast- just dump them in hot water for about 10 minutes and then mix with stirfried veggies and the dressing.

For the dressing, I just did a mix of sesame oil, a little rice wine vinegar, raw honey, peanut oil, garlic, red pepper flakes, and low sodium soy sauce. I didn’t use exact measurements because I just added until it tasted yummy. However, I will be trying to get the measurements perfect so I can share it with you. If you are looking for a recipe, you can use Rachel Ray’s asian slaw dressing- it is essentially the same as mine, I just made a larger serving.

I garnished mine with sesame seeds and toasted cashews and the veggies included water chestnuts, carrots, onion, red bell pepper, and snow peas. Very satisfying and easy to make!

I made these last night and we loved them! Made them again this morning so they can cool for a few hours before lunch. What a great summer meal! I have never made cold noodles like this before so your entry was really helpful. Thanks!
