From Fresh from the Oven's adaptation of a
July 2007 Bon Appetit Recipe comes the
519 Rendition of:
Spicy Sesame Noodles
In 1 tablespoon peanut oil saute 2 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger and 2-4 garlic cloves, minced. Transfer to large bowl and add the following: 3 tablespoons Asian sesame oil, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon (or more) hot chili oil, and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt.
Prepare 1 pound fresh Chinese egg noodles or other fresh noodle. Run under cold water and add to sauce. Top noodles with 12 green onions (white and pale green parts only), thinly sliced. Let set one hour at room temperature and serve with 1/2 cup coarsely chopped roasted peanuts and 1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh Thai basil leaves.
Enjoy with Thai Tea on a warm spring day or save the recipe for warmer summer days!
