Very tasty, but was missing something when I tasted the sauce. I added a 1" piece of peeled and sliced ginger root, and about 5 shakes of fish sauce to the food processor when pureeing the sauce. Otherwise excellent. Don't skip toasting the sesame seeds as it really shows up in the final product.
Very good! Its the second time that I`ve made it. My husband who is mainly a hamburger, cheese type of guy really loved it! Now that`s saying something. I made it exactly as posted except I small diced the cucumbers & sprinkled them on top. Its going into my Favorites cook book to do again. Thanks for posting! Vi
Really good! I didn't have a cucumber so I left that out and I used thin spaghetti instead of soba noodles. I also added a bit of lime juice, and a little bit more than 1 tbsp of honey added just the right amount of sweetness. This would be excellent with the addition of an assortment of vegetables and maybe even some chicken or something.
I made this dish with the following modifications: I cut the recipe in half, substituted 8 ounces of thin rice noodles (personal preference), natural organic peanut butter, and omitted the scallions, cilantro, and cucumbers as I didn't have any on hand. I opted to use Eden Mirin as opposed to sherry. The dish was awesome, and the left overs for lunch today tasted even better. This recipe is defintley a keeper, thanks NcMysteryShopper for submitting this recipe.
Really easy and good. I did it with rice noodles, no extra nuts, quite a few toasted sesame seeds no cilantro-blech! I would definitely make it again and served it with teriyaki chicken chunks. Good stuff, I bet it will be good leftover. Makes a lot.
This is a great version- all thumbs up. I substituted thin fresh chinese egg noodles for the soba noodles and used natural peanut butter. I tasted the sauce and added about 2 Tbsp. honey at step 3 for a nice balance. Also a splash of fresh lime juice might be great- I didn't have any at the time of making. Yum!
Yum Yum Yum. These were some great sesame noodles! Very easy to put together and very tasty. Loved the red wine vinegar in here too! Different but doesnt stand out. I cannot get Soba noodles in my neck of the woods for some reason so I used fettucine. Everything came out great. I added 2 Tbsp of honey at the end and mixed it all together. Great touch! Mellows everything together and adds just a touch of natural sweetness. You have the best recipes NCM. Thank you for sharing!
