Cold Sesame Noodles

So easy and fast, these Sesame Noodles are silky, savory and delicious.


I just recently celebrated my three-year anniversary on the blog. Most of my other anniversaries have been very low-key. This one is no acceptation.

I decided to do something out of the ordinary and make this cold dish. It has lots of good stuff in it and it is perfect for a picnic or potluck. It is a make ahead meal that tastes great. It is a very unique dish to take to a potluck or any get together. It tastes great and the leftovers are phenomenal.


Cold Sesame Noodles


1 pound chinese egg noodles

2 cups Bok choy

1 teaspoon sesame oil

6 tablespoons tahini paste or peanut butter

3/4 cup water

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

3 tablespoons soy sauce

1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar

2 garlic cloves


Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the noodles. Cook until just tender about 3-4 minutes. Add Bok choy and cook an additional 2 minutes. Drain well. Toss them with the sesame oil to coat. Cover and refrigerate.

In a large bowl thin the sesame paste by stirring enough water into the paste to thin it out. Whisk together the vinegar, soy sauce and sugar. Add the mixture to the tahini. Stir in the garlic.

Just before serving toss the chilled noodles with the sauce.

Peace be with you,
