Sesame Noodles


For the most part in life I prefer the simple things. I am definitely a no mama drama kinda girl. I'm not even sure what that means but I've heard it on several tv shows which just goes to show that I likely live drama through television and not through my own personal life. Accepted. Okay, apparently I needed to get something off my chest here. I don't even know where that came from but I feel better, don't you? No? well thanks for listening anyway.

So what should have been the shortest post EVER and was meant to go a little like this: "Looking for the simplest, most delicious sesame noodles around? Look no further. Period." has apparently turned into a slight therapy session revealing the facts that I clearly watch too much trashy tv, I often avoid confrontation and I appreciate the simple things in life. Could be worse. Now please excuse my vulnerable self while I go into hiding for at least a week. Oh but before I go, did I mention that I regularly eat two bowls of these noodles. Yes, TWO, fine THREE. They are that good. I know, I know, too much information. And with that, I'm outta here.

Recipe from the Pioneer Woman:
12 ounces thin noodles, such as soba, spaghetti or angel hair.
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
3 tablespoons pure sesame oil
1/2-1 teaspoon hot chile oil, start with half and add more depending on your taste
4 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons hot water
4 green onions, thinly sliced

1. Prepare the dressing by whisking all of the ingredients together.
2. Cook the noodles according to package directions.
3. When the noodles are cooked, drain and pour the dressing over warm noodles. Toss to coat.
4. Sprinkle chopped scallions over the noodles and mix together.
5. Serve warm or at room temperature.

These look so simple and delicious! And I frequently live my life through television too... mostly of the reality variety :)

Thanks for the support Sues, I'm glad I'm not the only one ;)

Great Sandi, these noodles are a perfect base for many ingredients. Chicken or beef would be really good too.

Sure Mystique, any thin noodle will work here.
