Chinese Cold Sesame Noodles | Cleveland Southside Moms


1 pound rice stick noodles

3 tablespoons sesame oil (divided)

1 tablespoon peanut butter

1 teaspoon water

2 teaspoons soy sauce (or tamari for gluten free)

1 tablespoon tahini

1 tablespoon cooking sherry or rice vinegar

1 tablespoon maple syrup

1 clove garlic (minced)

1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger (minced or grated)

3 green onions (sliced)


Gather the ingredients.

Cook noodles in water for just a few minutes, so they are just beginning to soften but are not yet all the way cooked. Drain.

In a large skillet, fry the noodles in 2 tablespoons of sesame oil, stirring frequently. Allow to cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until noodles are soft. Remove from heat.

In a large bowl or blender, whisk or blend together the 1 tablespoon of sesame oil, peanut butter, water, soy sauce (or tamari), tahini, sherry or rice vinegar, maple syrup, garlic and ginger.

Toss this mixture with the noodles.

Stir in the green onions. Chill before serving, if desired.
