March, which also happens to be National Noodles Month is drawing to a close and I have just the noodle dish to end the celebration with a bang: sesame noodles. This noodle dish of Sichuan origin is perfect for anytime of the year, especially when it is back-to-school time and mom are always running out of time to prepare family’s dinner.
It is so easy to make, with simple ingredients that you can get at any stores, and kids and adults alike love the sesame noodles. What’s more, you can prepare these noodles in the morning or afternoon and serve it for dinner as the dish does not require re-heating. Yet the rich, savory taste of the sauce will please everyone’s taste buds and palate, and they will be asking for more, including picky eater.
The main ingredients that pack the sesame sauce full of flavors are sesame oil, sesame paste, sweet soy sauce, creamy peanut butter and rice vinegar. The amounts I listed in my sesame noodles recipe are completely up to your taste, so you can adjust the seasonings according to your liking.
One serving of sesame noodles pack all the nutrition, but you can serve it with chicken, miso-glazed salmon, or a simple garlic boy choy. The possibilities are endless. I love it so much as this sesame noodles also make a great lunch box for kids at school, so try this recipe.
