Sesame Noodles With Chopped Peanut Recipe

Fast & Easy Dinner: Sesame Noodles With Chopped Peanuts

To make an authentic, Asian-style noodle dish, you don't need a lot of time or fancy ingredients. Don't believe me? This recipe proves it can be done. It takes regular angel hair pasta and tosses it with a fragrant sauce made of ginger, garlic, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, and chili oil. Green onions, peanuts, and Thai basil are the garnish, but feel free to toss in some more veggies (like mushrooms, bell peppers, or baby corn) or tofu to make it more substantial.

This pasta only gets better the more time the flavors are left to meld, so make it tonight and enjoy it tomorrow. It also makes a great picnic dish. Get the recipe after the break.

Sesame Noodles With Chopped Peanut Recipe 2010-05-11 12:32:11

Ingredients

1 tablespoon peanut oil
2 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons Asian sesame oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon (or more) hot chili oil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 pound fresh Chinese egg noodles or fresh angel hair pasta
12 green onions (white and pale green parts only), thinly sliced
1/2 cup coarsely chopped roasted peanuts
1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh Thai basil leaves

Directions

  1. Heat peanut oil in small skillet over medium heat. Add ginger and garlic; sauté 1 minute. Transfer to large bowl. Add next 6 ingredients; whisk to blend.
  2. Place noodles in sieve over sink. Separate noodles with fingers and shake to remove excess starch. Cook in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender, stirring occasionally. Drain and rinse under cold water until cool. Drain thoroughly and transfer to bowl with sauce.
  3. Add sliced green onions and toss to coat noodles. Let stand at room temperature until noodles have absorbed dressing, tossing occasionally, about 1 hour.
  4. Stir in peanuts and Thai basil; toss again. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve at room temperature.

Serves 4.
