The other day I went to my local Fairway market to get some lunch. They have such a great buffet spread from hot foods to cold salads. I fixed myself a nice portion of cold sesame noodles and some spring rolls. The sesame noodles tasted so good, I decided to make my own for dinner the next night ! This is the recipe I used, however, I added some leftover grilled chicken to my noodles. Enjoy!

Sesame Noodles3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1/2 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoon Oriental sesame oil
1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger root
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 pound spaghetti, linguine or lo mein noodles
chopped scallions for garnish


In a saucepan combine the soy sauce, the vinegar, the red pepper flakes, the brown sugar, the peanut butter, the oil, the ginger root, and the broth, simmer the mixture, stirring, until it is thickened and smooth, and let it cool slightly.

In a pot of boiling salted water, cook the noodles until they are al dente, drain them in a colander, and rinse them under cold water.

Drain the noodles well, transfer them to a bowl, and toss them with the sauce.

Serve the noodles cold or at room temperature and garnish them with the scallion.
