asian sesame noodles



these noodles are delicious.  i know noodles can be made hundreds of ways, but these happen to be a really wonderful side dish to fill out the plate with something different.  i don’t claim to be a noodle expert, but the flavor combination in this recipe seems to be quite simple but splendid.  i found the recipe in a library cookbook written by the pioneer woman, and as usual have adapted the ingredients to fit my needs.

here is my recipe for sesame noodles:  begin with about 1/3 to 1/2 of one package of lo mein noodles.  cook the noodles according to the directions.  when complete, drain the noodles and place in a medium-sized bowl.

next, mix the following ingredients together– 1/4 cup soy sauce, 2 tablespoons sugar, minced garlic to taste, 2 tablespoons rice vinegar, 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil, and less than 2 tablespoons canola oil.  slice two green onions and if desired, finely chopped sweet red pepper. 

pour the dressing over the noodles and mix in the onions and pepper. sprinkle sesame seeds on top.  toss the noodles in the bowl and serve warm.  these noodles are also tasty when served cold.  this recipe will make about four servings.
