Jack is Cooking Cold Sesame Noodles

Well Hello Internet!

phew the holidays are over!  i feel like i cooked a ridiculous amount of food, some of which has made it up here, some of which will make it up here eventually, and some of it that just slipped through the cracks!

anyways, as a result of all the cooking i did, be it cookies,  turkey, beef wellington,  pot pies, and whatever else i made, Butter has now become my number one used ingredient!  yum!  if you want to know how i can tell, if you look over in the right hand column of this blog you will see a list of ingredients.  every time i do a post i put the ingredients as labels, and it tallies them and puts them in descending order from most used to least used.

if you were to click on these ingredients you can then see all the recipes used involving that ingredient.

all that aside

Cold Sesame Noodles!  these are delicious, and they have no butter in them!  i need a break from butter!

they are super easy.

heres what you’ll need

1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 tablespoon soy sauce (shoyu)
1 tablespoon hot toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon olive oil
sesame seeds (optional)
1 carrot – julienned or i like to just use the peeler, and peel it all the way to the core (optional)
1 green onion (optional)
some kind of noodles, udon, soba, rice, or just plain old spaghetti (enough for 1 person but not enough for 2)

ok so take all the sauces, and whisk them together in a bowl

then, cook the noodles as per the instructions on your noodle packet
if you are using carrots, when there is 1 minute or less left for the noodles, throw the carrots in with them.  this will soften them slightly, but they will still be nice and crunchy. 
strain the carrots and the noodles, and run cold water over them to stop the cooking and turn them cold.
then put them in the bowl with the sauce mixture
toss everything until the sauce is coating the noodles nicely, throw on the green onions
and you have a delicious meal or snack! 
mmmm mmmm delicious!
