Vegan Asian Sesame Noodles

I think I’ve posted it before, but this is an old favorite in my house.  We like them served warm with vegetables mixed in, or cold alone.  Edamame makes a great addition or side dish.  They are also a perfect carry-in item for a potluck or picnic, because everyone loves them and they are good warm, room-temp, or cold.

Asian Sesame Noodles

1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds (optional)
1 lb thin spaghetti noodles
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup toasted sesame oil
3 T hot chili oil
3 T balsamic vinegar
3 T brown sugar

Boil water for pasta with olive oil.  Cook pasta per directions until al dente.  Drain.  While pasta is cooking, mix all remaining ingredients except sesame seeds, and wisk together.  After pasta is ready, toss the noodles in the sauce mix.  Chill if desired.  Add sesame seeds just before serving.

    MMMM good! I am wondering though, did you ever try it with the soba noodles?

      Yep! It works nicely with soba noodles or rice noodles. Also, I sometimes add chopped scallions or green onions on top, depending on who is eating it 🙂
