Basil sesame noodles

Just got a brand new cookbook, Cynthia Lair’s Feeding the Whole Family: Cooking with Whole Foods, which has been a fascinating and enlightening discussion of nutrition, and has lots of exciting recipes in it. As usual, I couldn’t help tinkering a bit, but the book has already proven to be a great source of inspiration. I found the noodles to be a bit dry, even though I doubled the recipe and was only serving two people, so I might recommend making more of the sauce. A delicious new taste though. Together with a couple handfuls of snow peas from the garden, made for a delightfully light yet filling meal! Definitely will be making this again!

Basil sesame noodles

Noodles (I used soma noodles, these neat super skinny Japanese noodles)

1/4 cup sesame seeds

2 tbsp. chopped basil


4 tbsp. vinegar

2 tbsp. tamari

2 tsp. toasted sesame oil

1 tbsp. peanut butter

1/2 tsp. coriander

Toast sesame seeds, placing them in a dry pan and stirring them over medium high heat until fragrant and begin to brown. Cook noodles. Mix together dressing ingredients and mix in with noodles. Top with sesame seeds and basil, and enjoy!
