Dinner in 10 Minutes: Delicious Sesame Noodles you can Make Faster Than the Delivery Service

No comments

Any pasta or noodles is always a win-win solution. And from the point of view of the taste preferences of the whole family, and time costs, and culinary skills. Plus – it is very easy to experiment with different ingredients on the basis of pasta and even create your own, branded, family recipe for the sauce. We suggest you try to move away from Italian variations on the theme for a while and turn to Asian ones – cook Chinese egg noodles instead of spaghetti. A simple and delicious recipe. Moreover, both hot and cold.

Sesame noodles are a popular Asian dish that typically consists of wheat-based noodles that are coated in a savory and nutty sesame sauce. The sauce is typically made from a combination of sesame paste, soy sauce, rice vinegar, and other ingredients such as ginger, garlic, and sugar. The noodles are often served cold and may be topped with various ingredients such as scallions, sesame seeds, and thinly sliced vegetables. Sesame noodles are often considered a classic Chinese dish and can be found on the menu at many Asian restaurants. They are a versatile dish that can be enjoyed as a main course or as a side dish.
