Cold Sesame Noodles

I was always obsessed with Cold Sesame Noodles from Chinese restaurants. If there is one food that I remember loving from my childhood, it is this one. And although I occasionally indulge in it now, we rarely order it in.  We ordered some recently from Vegetarian Paradise 2, so yummy! I love this place but since it basically is just vegan chinese food, we almost never treat ourselves to it.  After having that small taste, a couple of days later I was hankering for more. I chose to whip some up for myself and I was pleasantly surprised by how deelish it came out!

Before Mixing

After Mixing - don't they look so authentic!?!?!

Cold Sesame Noodles

3 tablespoons tamari
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
A squeeze of Sriracha
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
1/2 cup water
1 pound spaghetti

In a pan combine the soy sauce, vinegar, Sriracha, brown sugar, peanut butter, oil, ginger, and water. Simmer the mixture while stirring until thickened and combined, only a few minutes. Cook the noodles and drain. Toss with the sauce and chill until it reaches your desired temperature or if you just can’t wait any longer. if you want it traditional add chopped scallion and cucumber strips
