Sesame Noodles (cold)
Crunchy pea pods, green onions and oriental-style noodles are tossed in a ginger-spiked soy sauce to create this cold noodle dish. The small amount of sesame oil adds rich flavor without a lot of fat.
- 1 lb Chinese noodles, or angel hair pasta, uncooked
- 2 Tbs sesame oil
- 1/2 cup soy sauce, low sodium
- 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
- 2 Tbs sugar
- 2 Tbs cilantro, chopped (optional)
- 1 Tbs ginger root, grated
- 1 tsp hot chili oil
- 1 cup green onions, sliced diagonally
- 1 cup pea pods, fresh
- In a large pot, heat water to a boil. Cook pasta in rapidly boiling water until done. Drain and rinse with cold water.
- In a large bowl, mix together sesame oil, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sugar, cilantro, ginger root and hot chili oil. Add noodles and toss gently to separate the noodles and distribute the sauce. Add the green onions and toss. Let stand, tossing occasionally until all the sauce is absorbed into noodles. Add pea pods, stir and chill.
