    Default Cold Sesame Noodles (Vegetarian)

    Order nail wraps from a Jamberry Independent Consultant
    Description: With recommended sides: Glazed Tofu, blanched veggies

    Serving Size: 6

    Difficulty: Medium

    Ingredients:
    • 9-10 oz. Chinese noodles (see note)
    • 2 teasp. chili paste
    • 1/2 cup finely chopped scallions
    • 1 TBSP grated fresh ginger
    • 2 teasp. finely chopped garlic
    • 2 TBSP Chinese sesame oil
    • 3 TBSP tahini
    • 2 TBSP soy sauce
    • 1-1/2 teasp. sugar
    • Extra firm tofu, cut in thick slabs
    • Kikkoman Baste-and-Glaze sauce (Teriyaki is good)
    • Side veg -- like broccoli florets in the winter, snap peas in the summer, snow peas, etc.
    Steps:
    • Bring a big pot of water to a boil.
    • In a large bowl, mix together all of the sauce ingredients. until well blended.
    • When the water boils, briefly cook the vegetables in it, just enough to tender-crisp, then lift them out with a strainer. Set aside in a serving bowl.
    • Cook the noodles in the boiling water, per package instructions. Drain and rinse them under cold water, then toss with the sesame sauce to coat.
    • Meanwhile, for the tofu: Preheat broiler, and spay a broiler pan with some nonstick spray. Cut the tofu into thick slabs, and press the excess moisture out. Coat it with a thick glaze; we usually use the Kikkoman brand Teriyaki Baste and Glaze, but there are probably others. Broil for about ten minutes, turning once. Watch carefully the first couple of times you make this, until you get a sense of how quickly it cooks on your equipment. After it's out of the oven, you can cut it diagonally into strips for a nice presentation, or just serve as is.

    Default Re: Cold Sesame Noodles

    The sauce for the sesame noodles is very forgiving on quantities. We often discover that we're short on green onions, but it's no big deal. And, depending on the oomph of your chili paste and your personal preferences, you may want to decrease or increase the called-for amount.

    Chinese noodles are usually found as fresh noodles. Check in the produce section; I think the brand Azumaya is pretty widely distributed. You want the kind that's about the thickness of spaghetti.
