This dish is full of ingredients that you can store in your pantry, such as noodles, soy sauce, and tahini (sesame paste). After you toss the cool noodles in the creamy sauce, drizzle them with Chinese chili oil to add a little kick to this simple side dish.From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).
Liked this recipe. However, found it needed a little more salt. Added almost a full bunch of green onions for more flavor and sprinkled some sesame seeds for texture and flavor. Used soba noodles we like them and they are a healthier choice.
I liked this recipe. I've made it twice now. Two others in the family said they liked it but that it had a bitter undertone. I didn't get that. Maybe more sugar next time?
I added toasted black sesame seeds to finish it off to add a bit more color. Felt like it was too bland and monochromatic looking.
Add HOT water instead of Cold water and the thaini or peanut butter will get thinner faster We also add hot pepper flakes
