Sesame Noodles

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on April 11, 2012

Feel free to shun me after I admit this, but I don’t like peanut noodles.  I see them all over and I see everyone freaking out over them.  I’ve even tried a couple different recipes because they look so good but I never liked them.  Weird, right?

I’m a huge fan of peanut butter and eat it buy the spoonful, so that’s not the problem.  I love tangy peanut sauce as a salad dressing, dip, or whatever, so that’s not the problem either.  They seem so awesome, you can eat them hot or cold, made just with noodles or a bunch of veggies too.  But nope, I guess I never tried the right recipe.  Now, you could make this recipe with peanut butter, but for some reason I love the sesame flavor more so I use tahini.  But even if you use peanut butter the sesame oil will make it taste sesame-y.  Go ahead and try saying that one out loud.  Sesame-y 🙂

I have another thing to admit… For the longest time I refused to buy bagged coleslaw mix.  Sure, it’s cheaper to buy a whole cabbage and chop it yourself.  I also don’t really like how thinly sliced some coleslaw mixes are because perfectly cooked is about two seconds away from mush.  In fact, I still usually buy the cabbage and carrots and chop them whenever I have time and keep them ready to go in the fridge.  But in the end, if you need a fast dinner and don’t have any time to prep the veggies, this can still totally be it.

And since I’ve been asked, and I know I will be asked again….  No baby yet! 😀

I just posted some Asian dish as well…funny!! Anyhow, I do too love anything peanut butter. I make my own peanut dressing and one of my favorite pastas is a peanut butter version, I can’t leave without it!! Great dish. This reminds me I have to buy some soba noodles and get to work 🙂

Heh, I was wondering how you were getting on! I’m not a great fan of peanut noodles either, this looks like a much nicer alternative!

Well, I DO love my peanut noodles…but I’m a pretty equal opportunist type of gal when it comes to sesame noodles. This recipe sounds so delicious!

I miss sesame noodles! I can’t have soy right now because of Luke’s sensitivities. 🙁 This looks great–I’ll bet it’s really good with tahini!

Hi Heidi,

Thanks for your comment on my blog! Your noodles look delicious. I often debate peanut or sesame oil when dressing noodles and stir fry, but never thought of using tahini. I also refuse to buy bagged coleslaw mix, but mostly because freshly shredded cabbage is a lot juicier, the bagged stuff is usually dry.

Aww what a pretty presentation of noodles! I love sesame seeds (you will see a guest post today on my blog using sesames for cupcakes!), and this looks something I’d love to eat!

I love that fusion of Asian and Near-Eastern! Here tahini is used like butter in France or mayo in the US, which is practically on almost everything!
