I realized after I posted this that today is only Thursday! I am probably the only person that has ever done this!
I am trying something new on my blog. I have decided to make Fridays my Try a Bloggy Friend's Recipe Day! For my first week I decided to try and make the Cold Sesame Noodles I found on Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice. I have been dying to make this ever since I saw it! You should go visit Reeni's blog! It's overflowing with yummy recipes and terrific photos! Love the new look over there too!!
My husband is more of a meat and potatoes kind of guy. He has informed me on several occasions the he just does not like pasta. So, I made everyone else in the family soft tacos and I made the Sesame Noodles Just For Me! :0)
I didn't have the exact same ingredients that Reeni's recipe called for so I worked with what I had.
- Kosher salt
- 1 lb of Spaghetti noodles
- 1 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
- 3 tsp minced garlic
- 2 tbsp light brown sugar
- 1 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 3 tbsp rice vinegar
- 3 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
- 1 tsp red chili sauce
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 6 tbsp water
- Toasted sesame seeds and chopped cilantro for garnish
Place the ginger, garlic, brown sugar, peanut butter, rice vinegar, soy sauce, chili sauce, sesame oil, and water into a blender or food processor and blend until smoother. Place in fridge for 30 minutes. Toss with noodles. Garnish with cilantro and sesame seeds.
This recipe was terrific. I can't wait to make it again. Thanks Reeni for the great recipe!
