Cold Sesame Noodles In A Flash


I had a large amount of leftover soba noodles in the fridge and was debating how to make use of them.  We are huge fans of cold sesame noodles, so it seemed like the perfect solution.

Cold Sesame Noodles

12 to 16 ounces of soba noodles, or any whole grain or whole wheat spaghetti
2 tsp sesame oil
3 tbsp natural peanut butter
1/4 c. reduced sodium chicken broth
1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce (add more if needed)
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
a sprinkling of red pepper flakes (to taste, optional)
1/2 cup sliced scallions (optional)
snow pea pods or sugar snap pea pods (optional)
black pepper to taste

Cook the soba noodles or spaghetti according to package directions. Drain the soba noodles, and toss with sesame oil.

In a small bowl, stir together peanut butter, chicken broth, soy sauce, sugar, and rice wine vinegar. Add red pepper flakes, if desired. After the sauce is mixed thoroughly, add other optional ingredients and pepper to taste.

Pour the sauce on the pasta and mix well to coat. Serve hot, cold or at room temperature.

These are a winner every time!

Until my next post, 4 whatever it’s worth…..
