Here’s one more recipe to add to my recent noodle collection:

Sesame Noodles, which I adapted from babble.com

Awesome Sesame Noodles - great meatless option, or add chicken or shrimp. Also increase siracha for more spiciness if you want.

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1 lb. thin spaghetti
  • 1 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 2 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. rice or balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. honey
  • Tiny squirt of siracha
  • Optional toppings: additional siracha (for spiciness), toasted sesame seeds, chopped peanuts, sliced green onions, cooked chicken, cooked shrimp, etc.

WHAT YOU DO:

  • Cook pasta according to the package directions, then drain.
  • While pasta boils, in a large skillet heat oil and sauté the garlic and ginger for a few minutes, until soft but not brown. Transfer to a bowl and add the sesame oil, soy sauce, vinegar, honey and sriracha.
  • Toss pasta into a hot skillet with a bit of sesame and/or canola oil, stirring for a few minutes, until the noodles start to brown. Set aside to cool before tossing with the dressing.
  • Add to the bowl of dressing along with the any veggies or meat or other toppings (if using) and toss well to coat. Let sit for an hour, or refrigerate overnight. Serve topped with chopped peanuts, if you like. Served chilled or at room temperature.

I’m on a noodle kick! After making some Creamy Lemon Spinach Pasta the other day, I tried a Spicy Thai Noodle recipe. Sooooo yummy.

I ate a few bites when it was still warm, and thought it was gross! I threw it in the fridge though, and ate it cold like recommended in the recipe from asmallsnippet.com, and it was *awesome!* It was really spicy, and I love spice, so feel free to adjust the amount of crushed red pepper.

Spicy Thai Noodles - boil linguine, mix in some soy sauce, honey, sesame oil & red pepper flakes. So easy and so delicious!

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1 box linguine
  • 1 Tbsp. crushed red pepper flakes (NOTE: this was super spicy. If you’re not a spicy fan, try reducing the red pepper flakes by say half or so?)
  • 1/4 c. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 c. sesame oil
  • 1/3 c. soy sauce
  • 1/3 c. honey
  • Optional toppings: sliced green onions, chopped cilantro, crushed peanuts, toasted seasme seeds

WHAT YOU DO:

  • Cook noodles according to instructions on package then drain.
  • While noodles are boiling heat the oils and crushed red pepper in a pan.
  • Strain out pepper flakes, then into the oil whisk in the soy sauce and honey.
  • Pour the oil mixture into the noodles and stir to combine.
  • Refrigerate for a few hours, or until cold.
  • Before serving add toppings.

By the way, here’s one of my favorite things from Amazon Prime – an entire gallon can of soy sauce! We use it all the time for cooking, stir fry recipes, rice, etc.
