I have been craving Asian cuisine non-stop. Last night I ordered take-out (which I never do) and today I decided I was going to take a chance at making sesame noodles. Unfortunately, I haven’t gone shopping yet. This is a recipe of things I had around- ginger, noodles, peanut butter, and random vegetables about to turn. Truth be told, it was delicious. I hate to think I might have to make this for my roommates and share.
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter (tahini if you have it)
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tbsp garlic, chopped
- 1 tbsp ginger, chopped
- 1 shredded carrot
- 1/4 thinly sliced red onion (or scallions, diced)
- 1/2 head broccoli
- 1 pack of soba or lo mein noodles
- Cook noodles according to package.
- In a sauce pan, combine peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, olive oil, brown sugar, rice vinegar, garlic, and ginger. If it’s too thin, add more peanut butter. Heat on low until well combined.
- In a small frying pan, saute the vegetables. They should still be crisp.
- Combine noodles, sauce, and veggies in a large bowl. Stir. Serve hot or cold!
