Sesame Noodles

Posted by The Lunchbox Tree

1 lb. lo mein noodles, cooked and rinsed in cold water (or linguini, if you can't find lo mein noodles)

2 T. sesame oil

3 T. soy sauce

2 T. unseasoned rice wine vinegar

1 t. honey

3 T. tahini (sesame paste)

2 T. smooth peanut butter (I use that hippy-ish natural stuff without added sugar)

2 tsp. sambal oelek or other chile-garlic paste

1 T. toasted sesame seeds

2 cloves garlic, finely minced

2 scallions, finely sliced

1 T. finely minced ginger

1 carrot, peeled and julienned

1 small red bell pepper, seeded and julienned

 Toss the cooked noodles with the sesame oil in a large bowl.  In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, honey, tahini, peanut butter, sambal oelek, garlic, scallions, and ginger.  Pour over the noodles, and add the carrot and bell pepper and toss until well mixed.  Garnish with the toasted sesame seeds.
