Sesame Noodles

You know me and my desire for simple recipes. . .well, this one is just that! I came across it while looking for more meatless dishes. My kids absolutely LOVE Asian noodles, so I thought this would be a hit with them. We're going to eat it for dinner tonight, so I'll post the finished product then (and their reviews). We have a busy day of hanging out with friends at the Science Museum and the zoo ahead, so I thought I'd post the recipe early today!

*Update: These are so incredibly good! Josie, Rhett, and Rheve slurped them up, and I ate a huge bowl. Jer is at the station, so he didn't get a chance to try them, but I can promise you that he would have loved them, as well!

12 ounces thin spaghetti noodles (cooked and drained)
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
4 cloves garlic (minced--I am just using jarred minced garlic)
2 tablespoons rice vinegar (not pictured)
3 tablespoons pure sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon hot chili oil (I am using hot chili sauce, since that's what I have.)
4 tablespoons canola 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.

Pour sauce over warm noodles and toss to coat. Sprinkle with green onions and toss. Serve in a bowl with chopsticks.


  1. Hello! I found your blog through BlogFrog and wanted to come check it out. Your blog is the first recipe blog I have been on that shows a picture of all the ingrediets FIRST, before describing the recipe. I wish cookbooks did this! I think this is a fantastic idea and so very helpful. Great job!
