Have I ever mentioned that I love cold food?  Well, I do. I even might say I like cold food over hot food in most categories. So certainly, Chinese food tastes really good to me when it’s cold. So obviously these cold sesame noodles with scallions and edamame totally hit the spot.

1/2 tsp sesame seeds
julienne cucumbers, crushed peanuts or red pepper flakes, optional

  2. Combine sesame oil, soy sauce, peanut butter, black vinegar, and ponzu then mix well
  3. Incorporate noodles, sauce and edamame, place in refrigerator at least 30 minutes or until chilled
  4. Garnish with scallions and sesame seeds and anything else you desire

I’m loving these gluten free black bean noodles. They are incredible and so high in protein and fiber — talk about filling! If you can’t find these or would rather use traditional egg noodles, I’m sure they would work just fine.  Have you ever made cold sesame noodles? What’s your favorite addition to noodles?  Hope you enjoy…

    These look great! I love cold food too :) Sometimes I think it’s just because I’m too lazy or too hungry to reheat but either way it’s still delicious.
