  • 1 pound rice stick noodles
  • 2 tbsp. sesame oil + 1 tbsp
  • 1 tbsp. peanut butter
  • 1 tsp. water
  • 2 tsp. soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 tbsp. tahini
  • 1 tbsp. cooking sherry or rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 tsp. fresh ginger (minced or grated)
  • 3 green onions, sliced

Steps to Make It

  1. Cook noodles in water for just a few minutes, so they are just beginning to soften but are not yet all the way cooked. Drain.

  2. In a large skillet, fry the noodles in 2 tablespoons of sesame oil, stirring frequently. Allow to cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until noodles are soft. Remove from heat.

  3. In a large bowl or blender, whisk or blend together the 1 tablespoon of sesame oil, peanut butter, water, soy sauce, tahini, sherry or rice vinegar, maple syrup, garlic and ginger. Toss this mixture with the noodles.

  4. Stir in the green onions.

Chill before serving, if desired.
