Garlic Sesame Noodles
Garlic Sesame Noodles – Noodles are a girl’s best friend, and this recipe for simple garlic sesame noodles is by far my favorite one. They only a few ingredients, don’t contain gluten, take 15 minutes to prepare, and can be served hot or cold!
Garlic Sesame Noodles Ingredients
- Brown rice noodles weighing 12 ounces
- 1 tablespoon olive or avocado oil
- 6 cloves of garlic
- 1/4 to 1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce or tamari
- 2 tablespoons vegetable broth
- 1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons tahini
- 2 tablespoons sriracha
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- Cook the pasta as directed on the package in a large pot of boiling water.
- Since we won’t be blending this sauce, finely chop the garlic or use a garlic press to crush it.
- In a pan, combine the neutral oil with the minced garlic. This could be refined coconut oil, avocado, or olive oil.
- Saute the garlic until the edges appear golden brown.
- In the meantime, combine the remaining sauce ingredients in a bowl with a whisk until there are no ginger clumps visible and the tahini is evenly distributed.
- Combine the garlic and sauce in the pan thoroughly.
- Allow to simmer for two to three minutes, or until the sauce slightly thickens.
- Combine the sauce with the pasta once it has finished cooking.
- Enjoy with scallions, crushed peanuts, and red pepper flakes on the garnish!
- Regular soy sauce will be far too salty, so be sure to use low sodium soy sauce! If you’re sensitive to salt, start with 1/4 cup instead of the 1/3 cup that I prefer.
- You can use olive, avocado, refined coconut oil, and other oils as the neutral oil. All that is required is to sauté the garlic.
- This recipe is not spicy as written. Add more hot sauce or red pepper flakes if you’d like!
- These garlic-sesame noodles can be stored for five days in the refrigerator in an airtight container after preparation.
- I advise doubling the sauce recipe if you intend to serve this dish with any vegetables, chicken, tofu, or other ingredients.
