Best type of noodle?

I suppose you could use any type of noodle – rice noodles, udon or soba noodles or probably even spaghetti!

The great advantage of this meal is the speed with which it can be on the table. Especially if you use quick-cooking noodles.

We like our noodles hot, but they can also be eaten cold if you prefer. This is quite common in Asia.

So sesame noodles can be enjoyed warm or chilled, making them a versatile option for any occasion. They can stand alone as a light and satisfying meal, or be served as a side dish alongside grilled meats or stir-fried vegetables.

We ate these together with some Thai satay, and the satay sauce made these noodles even better!

You can experiment with the Sriracha sauce, depending on how spicy you want your noodles. You could even make a full meal with this recipe by adding some cooked chicken to the pot.

The apple cider vinegar is perhaps not really an authentic Chinese or Asian ingredient. However I did not have any Chinese rice vinegar in the pantry and this seems to work just as well.

Noodles are a fantastic Asian dish and are so easy to prepare when you have the right ingredients to give them some taste.

The use of tahini and peanut butter in this dish is a classic and I guarantee you this dish will go down well.
