Not So Pissed Off-Cold Sesame Noodles


-->
After a weekend of eggs, cheese and cake, my vegan-month bitterness has subsided enough for me to realize that some good things can come from soy-controlled confinement.
Cold Sesame Noodles is a New York City Chinese take-out standard; it’s accidently vegan and easy to make. These noodles provide the comfort of mac and cheese with some Asian flair.
During vegan month, this dish was my post-work, pre-dinner, binge-snack because it’s good cold and satisfying.


Chinese Take-Out Cold Noodles
1 pound Chinese yellow noodles (or thin pasta)
¼ cup soy sauce
¼ cup tahini (sesame paste)
1 tbs hot chili oil
1 tbs sesame oil
1 clove garlic (minced)
1 tbs vegetable oil
2 tbs rice wine vinegar
2 green onion stalks (sliced)
white sesame seeds (optional)
Boil noodles according to packaging.
Rinse cooked noodles in cold water to stop cooking. Drain well.
In a bowl, blend all remaining ingredients except: vinegar, onion and sesame seeds.
Once mixture is smooth, add vinegar. (Be sure to add vinegar after mixing other ingredients or mixture will separate.)
Toss noodles and dressing in a large bowl.
Serve topped with green onions and sesame noodles.

    Do these noodles count as vegetarian? I know they are, but I never think of them that way. Yummy!
