Sesame-Peanut Noodle Salad
1 Package soba noodles, or angel hair pasta
1 TBS peanut oil
2 TBS minced peeled fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
Shitake mushrooms, sliced thin
3 TBS Asian hot sesame oil
2 TBS rice wine vinegar
2 TBS soy sauce
12 Green onions (white and pale green parts only), thinly sliced
1/2 Cup coarsely chopped roasted peanuts
This is a great cold Asian noodle salad for a hot night. You can serve as a side, or make it a meal with chopped cooked chicken or tofu. It also gets better the longer it sits in the fridge.
Cook the noodles according to package directions. While pasta is cooking, heat peanut oil in skillet. Saute ginger, garlic and mushrooms for 1-2 minutes. Add hot sesame oil, rice wine vinegar and soy sauce in a large bowl. Add the sauteed mushrooms to the bowl. Drain noodles and rinse with cold water. Toss noodles in dressing with carrots, cabbage, green onions, and peanuts. Season with salt and pepper. Let sit in fridge for at least 15 minutes before serving. Serve with lime wedges.
