Udon Noodles with Spicy Peanut Tahini Sauce
Updated: Jan 5, 2020
Soft, chewy and smooth udon noodles with refreshing crunchy veggies doused in nutty sauce. This is the definition of comfort food.
Last week I made spicy peanut tahini sauce to go with wontons. Since I love this sauce so much I decided to make the sauce again. Only this time, I tossed it with my other favorite food: udon noodles.
To balance out soft chewy noodles and thick nutty spicy sauce, I added freshly cut vegetables, crushed peanuts, sesame seeds and lime juice.
The verdict? This simple dish was just perfect. Delicious, satisfying and refreshing.
