There is this little noodle place near where I work that allows you to mix and match sauces, proteins and noodles into a wide variety of combinations. I think I’ve only had the peanut noodles there. Here is a version of that dish.

Cold Peanut-Sesame Noodles

Prep Time: 1 hours 0 minutes | Cook Time: 0 hours 25 minutes | Servings: 6 servings | Difficulty: Easy


Kosher salt
12 ounces flat Chinese egg noodles
3/4 cup strong brewed green tea
1/3 cup natural peanut butter
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar (not seasoned)
3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup roasted peanut oil
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds, plus more for topping
1 teaspoon chili-garlic sauce
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1 1-inch piece ginger, peeled
1 small clove garlic

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook as the label directs, then drain.

Meanwhile, make the sauce: Combine the green tea, peanut butter, soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar and peanut oil in a blender. Add the sesame seeds, chili-garlic sauce, sesame oil, ginger, garlic and 1/4 teaspoon salt; process until smooth.

Toss the noodles with the peanut sauce and carrots in a large bowl. Chill about 1 hour. Top with cilantro, peanuts and more sesame seeds.
