Sesame Noodles

My children are picky.  I keep hoping I’m imagining it, but chances are I’m not.  I’ve grown to expect it from my 4 year old.  But I think my 20 month old is following in her footsteps.  I’m always on the hunt for something I can feed them that is healthy and that will fill their little bellies.  The other day when I made my soy glazed salmon, I made these sesame noodles to serve on the side.  And since KB is trying to eat less carbs, I used the dressing for the noodles on some salad for him.  The results?  KB finished the salad and the kids finished the noodles.  Win-win!

This recipe is so simple.  Make noodles.  Make dressing.  Mix together and eat!

Mix all dressing ingredients in a bowl.  You could also shake in a jar and then just pour.

Cook noodles.  I used fresh udon noodles.  But you could also use spaghetti or any other type of noodle.  I like a long thin noodle for this dish though.
