Sesame Noodles Chien Noir

From the Black Dog Restaurant. . . I think.

serves about 6

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup tahini

1/4 cup warm water

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 Tbsp. sugar

2 Tbsp. cider vinegar

2 cloves minced garlic

1 1/2 tsp. chili oil (to taste)

2 tsp. sesame oil (the chinese kind with deep flavor)

1/2 cup green onions (my kids won’t eat it if I put these on it so I always leave them off, but nice idea)

16 oz. soba noodles


Process all ingredients but the green onions and noodles in a food processor.  Boil the noodles in salted water for 4-6 minutes until cooked, then rinse in cold water until cool-ish.  Pour the sauce over the noodles and mix.  Garnish with green onions before serving.  Serve at room temperature.
