These sesame noodle bowls get all the toppings to take it from a side of noodles to a balanced and customizable meal. We have peanut sesame noodles with dumplings or edamame but these bowls were a slight variation with a few choices of toppings or on the side.
We regularly have pasta so variety keeps us on own toes. If just one kid is home I try to think of what they’d be more into than the other. The little guy likes long noodles more than little sister.
Sesame Peanut Noodles
Ingredients: (for 4-5 servings)
1 pound linguine
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon sriracha
1 1/2 cup pulled pork
1 cup edamame
2 green onions
(optional) pickled onions, radish, sesame noodles, hot honey, fish sauce
Boil salted water for the pasta and cook until al dente.
Whisk, or shake together in a jar, the soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, rice vinegar, ginger, garlic, and sriracha.
Pan sear the pulled pork until warmed through and crispy.
Cook and shell the edamame, and chop the green onions.
When the pasta is cooked, drain and toss it in the sauce to cook for another minute or two.
Top with pork, edamame, avocado, and any toppings.
I like the salty and sesame flavors and all the textures. The edamame pop and the avocado is creamy. I wished for pickled onions- we actually had onion but alas, no red wine vinegar.
If just one kid is home I try to think of what they’d be more into than the other. The little guy likes long noodles more than little sister though he’d rather the pulled pork be in bbq sauce.
