Spicy Sesame Noodles

Spicy Sesame Noodles with Chilli Oil

Spicy sesame noodles made in less than 10 minutes! Perfect on it’s own or as a side dish to accompany a main.

This nutty, savoury dish has a hint of sweetness and spiciness, balanced out with the black vinegar. In our variation, we topped it with sliced carrot, green onions, cucumber and toasted sesame seeds. You can also serve it with a side of fried tofu (vegetarian option), fried chicken marinated in five spice, sweet soy, salt, and coated in cornflour (salt, white pepper and garlic powder).

  • 1 tsp sesame oil

  • 1 thinly sliced carrot and cucumber
  • 2 spring onions
  • 2 Tb water – Adjust to your preference. If you want it a thinner dressing, add more water
