Prep time: 40 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

For the sesame-peanut sauce

·         5 tablespoons white sesame seeds, toasted, divided

·         2 tablespoons soy sauce

·         3 tablespoons caster sugar

·         1 tablespoon peanut butter mixed with a splash of warm water

·         Juice from ½ lemon

·         Sesame oil and salt, to taste

·         4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced finely

·         1 tablespoon white vinegar

·         1 tablespoon cold water

·         200 grams egg noodles

·         2 tablespoons toasted peanuts, crushed white sesame seeds for garnish

·         1 small cucumber, cut into thin strips (optional)

·         Green onions and cilantro for garnish (optional)

1.    Prepare the sesame-peanut sauce: combine half of the sesame seeds, soy sauce, and sugar in a food processor. Pulse, do not blend; you want the sauce to be slightly grainy. Add peanut butter and lemon juice to help smoothen out the paste. Set aside.

2.    Combine garlic, vinegar, and cold water in a bowl; stir well. Set aside.

3.    Boil a pot of water cook egg noodles according to package directions. Drain noodles and rinse briefly under cold water. Drain and set aside.

4.    In a small bowl, combine sesame-peanut sauce with enough hot water to thin the mixture into a smooth paste. Add the sesame oil and a pinch of salt. Set aside.

5.    Toss noodles with the garlic mixture and peanuts. Garnish with remaining sesame seeds, cucumber, green onions, and cilantro, if desired. Serve sesame-peanut sauce on the side or drizzle sauce over noodles.


Soba noodles can also be used in this recipe, but make sure to cook them for a slightly longer time.
