Sometimes simple is best. There are so many wonderful, inherently delicious flavors in the simplest ingredients and you don’t always have to grind and sauté and mix and beat and sear to combine thousands of ingredients to make something utterly delicious.
Sesame noodles fall under that umbrella. This is a very simple recipe for yummy sesame noodles. You can eat them by themselves or you can pair them with just about anything. Just last night I sautéed some shrimp and broccoli and tossed everything together at the end. My mouth is watering just thinking of last night’s dinner…. Yummy!
12 ounces spaghetti noodles, cooked and drained
¼ cups soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon pure sesame oil
½ teaspoon sriracha sauce (more or less depending on how hot you like it)
2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
2 tablespoons hot water
4 whole green onions, sliced thin
Whisk all ingredients (except noodles and green onions) together in a bowl. Taste and adjust ingredients as needed.
