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.
Pour the dressing over the noodles.
9 oz fresh udon noodles (you can use any kind of long, thin noodles…spaghetti wouls also work well)
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
3 Tablespoons sesame oil
1 Tablespoon sweet chili sauce
1 Tablespoon mirin
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 green onions sliced
2 garlic cloves chopped
Mix the dressing together in a bowl. Pour over noodles. Or salad…if that’s what you feel like eating.
