How-to Make Sesame Noodles
1. Cook noodles according to package directions. Set aside. In a bowl mix remaining sauce ingredients.
2. Toss noodles with sauce.
3. Garnish with sesame seeds and cilantro before serving. Enjoy!
If you are not sensitive to soy, then soy sauce or tamari can be used in place of coconut aminos.
Apple Cider Vinegar
You can use lemon juice or rice vinegar in place of apple cider vinegar.
Honey, agave syrup, coconut sugar or coconut nectar can be used instead of maple syrup in this recipe.
The sriracha adds a slight spicy kick to these noodles. If you are not fond of spicy noodles, then simply omit the sriracha.
- Serve on their own for a super simple, easy and tasty meal.
- Top this sesame bowl off with tofu or tempeh for some added protein (note: this is not soy-free).
- Serve alongside your favorite steamed veggies. Broccoli, carrots, and spinach are some of my favorite additions.
- Top with green onions or sauteed mushrooms.
- This is a great dish to serve alongside some spring rolls for a heartier meal.
These noodles can be enjoyed served right way, chilled in the fridge then served as cold sesame noodles, or stored in the fridge in an air tight container for up to one week. To reheat, simply place in a skillet over low heat until warmed throughout.
