Many cold noodle recipes contain peanut butter or nuts. Here is a scrumptious Asian Cold Sesame Noodles recipe that tastes deliciously nutty, without any nuts. Nut-free, fuss-free, and delish!
Cold noodles are one of the best dinners for warm, muggy summer evenings. My go to cold Asian Noodles recipe is wildly popular with family and friends. Except for the ones allergic to peanuts, that is.
I am am a total peanut butter junkie through and through. A jar of creamy peanut butter is dangerous in front of my face. I also love cold noodles, and just had to find a way to dish them up without nuts so everyone can pile it on freely.
With this recipe, they might be piling it on two or three times…
I’m ecstatic to say I finally wrapped my chopsticks around this Asian Cold Sesame Noodles dish, without worrying about peanut allergies. This toothsome dish actually tastes nutty, thanks to pure sesame paste. The Littles actually thought there was PB in their mountain of noodles and were surprised that there wasn’t.
Hello, Tahini. I love that stuff in hummus, and now I’m diggin’ it in these noodles.
Tahini lends a rich thickness to the flavorful sauce. It imparts a deliciously toasty and aromatic flavor, while also providing healthful protein. Combined with Asian toasted sesame oil, soy sauce, and seasonings, this sauce is Deeeelightful. Capital D.
The cucumbers and carrots provide a refreshing crispness to the dish’s texture. Add chicken or shrimp if you like, or leave it meatless.
Garnish with plenty of green onions, toasted sesame seeds, and of course Sriracha. We don’t do Asian anything without Sriracha these days. One of my Littles squirts it on like nobody’s business. Everyone can spoon as much or as little heat onto their noodles as they like.
Chopsticks optional. But totally fun.
By the way, this dish is best eaten right after its tossed. Leftovers are still definitely yummy, but it will lose some of its sauciness the longer it sits.
Here’s to plenty of nights warm enough to nosh on cold noodles. All without breaking a sweat. Enjoy.Print
