Today was a school picnic for F, the 4yo. It's a potluck event and so I decided to make my very favorite Sesame Noodle dish which was given to me nearly 20 years ago by a friend. It's slightly spicy and sooooo good!
Sadly I forgot to take a picture of it but I did send some in the 7yo's lunch so can show the bit she took with her.
|L's lunch- PB sandwich, apples, and yummy sesame noodles|
For those of you wondering how to make this, I am posting the recipe here. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments! Enjoy!!!
1/4 c. soy sauce
3 T. Sesame Oil
2 T. Red Wine Vinegar
1 1/2 T. Sugar
1 T. Chili Sauce w/Garlic (Sambal Oelek)
12oz package Chinese water-style noodles or spaghetti
4 green onions sliced
2 bell peppers julienne
2 T. Cilantro, chopped (I use an entire bunch but just the leaves)
2-4t sesame seeds (I use toasted and normal)
Blend marinade ingredients until well combined (can be done a day ahead, cover and chill). Bring to room temperature. Cook noodles al dente, cool and toss with marinade and remaining ingredients. Serve chilled. This works as an entree and feeds 4 or as a side and feeds 8-10.
