The perfect side dish for your next Asian meal. These sesame noodles are wonderful served warm or cold.
For this month’s Secret Recipe Club I was assigned the blog Feast on the Cheap, written by the mother-daughter duo of Mary Anne and Mariel. Mary Anne has been a caterer for the last 20+ years, and firmly believes that healthy, home-made food doesn’t have to take a ton of money or hours spent in the kitchen. Mariel has grown up with her mother’s fabulous cooking, which has opened her up to experimenting with different flavors, textures, and cuisines.
I really wanted to make their Quiche with Caramelized Onions, Mushrooms, and Ham (if you go look at the picture you will completely understand why), but my landlord has yet to fix my oven so no baking for this girl. It is going on 3 weeks now and I am seriously annoyed!! You can bet your booty I will be making it as soon as my oven is fixed though.
This recipes is, just as they advertise, simple, inexpensive, and full of flavor. I made it as a side for my Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce and it was absolutely perfect. As a matter of fact, Kevin ate 3/4 of the noodles himself!! Even as I was writing this post he walked by, saw the picture, and said, “WOW that dish was soooo good!”. So don’t take my word for it, listen to Kevin! Make this dish ASAP, and make sure to head on over to Feast on the Cheap. Just have a napkin ready because you will be drooling, I promise!!
3/4 tablespoon honey (I used agave nectar because it is what I had on hand)
1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon of fresh ginger, grated
1 scallion, thinly sliced
Garnish with red pepper flakes, chopped peanuts or cilantro
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the noodles until according to package directions, drain. Return the noodles to the pot and toss with 2 tablespoons of sesame oil. Set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together 2 Tablespoons sesame oil, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, peanut butter, honey (or agave nectar), sesame seeds, garlic, ginger.
Toss the noodles with the sauce. Sprinkle with scallions and garnish of your choice. Serve cold or at room temp.

Wow, I think I have everything to make these. They sound incredible – pinning to make once the lasagna, leftover spaghetti carbonara, and an entire turkey have been eaten. I think I may have overcooked on the weekend – lol!
I love sesame noodles, but I hate that you made them because you don't have an oven!! You should share the landlords email address and let us all bombard them with complaints! I will be trying this recipe with tahini, never done that before, sounds divine! Jenna
