Sesame Noodles

I have been craving Asian cuisine non-stop. Last night I ordered take-out (which I never do) and today I decided I was going to take a chance at making sesame noodles. Unfortunately, I haven’t gone shopping yet. This is a recipe of things I had around- ginger, noodles, peanut butter, and random vegetables about to turn. Truth be told, it was delicious. I hate to think I might have to make this for my roommates and share.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter (tahini if you have it)
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp garlic, chopped
  • 1 tbsp ginger, chopped
  • 1 shredded carrot
  • 1/4 thinly sliced red onion (or scallions, diced)
  • 1/2 head broccoli
  • 1 pack of soba or lo mein noodles
  1. Cook noodles according to package.
  2. In a sauce pan, combine peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, olive oil, brown sugar, rice vinegar, garlic, and ginger. If it’s too thin, add more peanut butter. Heat on low until well combined.
  3. In a small frying pan, saute the vegetables. They should still be crisp.
  4. Combine noodles, sauce, and veggies in a large bowl. Stir. Serve hot or cold!

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life.
