Cold Ginger, Soy, and Honey Sesame Noodles

  • Currently 4/5

I prepared this to serve as a bento box style meal for after the theater one evening. It is very good and recieved raved reviews from my three other taste-testers!  I served it with a sliced pork tenderloin and snow peas.  Everything was served cold.

4 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
4 tablespoons honey
8 tablespoons Tamari (dark soy sauce)
1 teaspoons sesame oil
1 inch fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1 pound whole wheat spaghetti, cooked and rinsed under cold water
4 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds (optional)
1. In a medium microwaveable bowl, heat the peanut butter in the microwave oven until melted, or heat peanut butter over low heat on stove until mushy.
2. Whisk honey and Tamari into the peanut butter, then whisk in the sesame oil and the ginger. Toss the spaghetti with the sauce. If you want to get really groovy with the noodles, sprinkle them with sesame seeds.
3. If you want to bump up the crunch factor, add some shredded carrots, scallions, bean sprouts or other veggies.
4. Serves 4.
