10-Minute Sesame Noodles


In this recipe for 10-Minute Sesame Noodles a mixture of savory condiments coats  wheat noodles, cooked until tender, and then topped with chopped scallions and chili oil. Ready in mere 10 minutes, this recipe is foolproof and will yield delicious results. Serve as is or as a side dish to fried firm tofu (for a vegan option), spicy roasted chicken, or shrimp.

What makes this recipe shine is the Chinese sesame paste, which gives the sauce a nutty and toasty flavor. You can purchase this paste at most Asian stores. If you have trouble finding the paste, tahini will work instead – just note that the flavor will be less toasty. For the topping, use as much or as little chili oil as you’d like for a spicy accent. These noodles are best served hot.
