Take-out style sesame noodles are here to make your weeknight dinners 100% better! Pasta for dinner is always a go-to when I want something comforting and quick. I used to love ordering in sesame noodles, and wanted to recreate a version thats lighter without as much grease.
These noodles are loaded with flavor and are a great dish to pair with tofu, chicken or fish, like this honey garlic salmon. You can use any noodles you like, and even make this gluten-free if needed. If you use a bean-based pasta, you add some extra fiber and protein to the dish without any extra work!
Pasta dishes are a great way to pack in veggies, aka extra nutrients. I added carrots and onions to this dish, but you can add in anything you have on hand! I always have frozen veggies stocked up for meals like this. Stir fry blends, or frozen peppers and onions are two of my favorites to keep around!
For the sauce, I love using a toasted sesame oil. The flavor is much stronger, and you end up needing less of it without compromising taste. I also swapped traditional soy sauce for coconut aminos, one of my favorite naturally sweet, gluten-free soy sauce alternatives.
Take-out style sesame noodles are the perfect, lazy dinner. They come together in just 30 minutes, and totally hit the spot for comfort food.
Try it out the next time you’re looking to change up your dinner game. This dish makes for the perfect leftovers, too!
