Cold Sesame Noodles

Cold Sesame Noodles

  • 1 pound spaghetti - gluten-free to make this GF (preferably BiAglut - you'll never know it's GF!!!)
  • 1 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1/3 cup sesame seeds
  • 6 tablespoons soy sauce - wheat-free tamari to make this GF
  • 6 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • red pepper flakes
  • shredded lettuce
  • shredded carrot
  • sliced green onions

Cook noodles according to package, drain well, transfer to large bowl and toss well with oil.  Set aside.
Toast sesame seeds in heavy small skillet until light brown stirring constantly!  Put in food processor or blender with next 9 ingredients and process until smooth.  Mix sauce well with noodles and refrigerate.

At serving time, bring noodles to room temp.  Arrange lettuce on large serving platter, mound noodles in center and top with shredded carrots and green onions.

NOTE:  This makes a nice main dish if you add some sliced or shredded chicken breast or steamed, peeled shrimp to the noodles!
