I love Asian-inspired dishes, but they are often drowning in salt, soy sauce and oils. I wanted to create a hearty noodle dish without these ingredients, but still full of flavor. Toward this, I include garlic, cilantro, ginger, curry and lime juice. And for those that like it a little spicy, some optional red pepper flakes. Enjoy!Print
Above: The completed dish garnished with white, hulled sesame seeds. These can be found in the bulk section of health food groceries. Smell them to make sure they are not rancid, which can be the case with these seeds if they are old (the white sesame seeds do not have hulls/protective outer coverings, so they spoil faster than sesame seeds with hulls, which are grayer in color).
Above: Garnished with some grated walnuts. By using a rotary cheese grater, you can grate any type of nuts or seeds on top of savory or sweet dishes, just to give a little richness without going overboard.
