Chinese Noodles Two Ways!

Guest Blog Post by Rena Tuchinsky

Hi I’m Rena! I recently started blogging over at my blog “No Way That’s Healthy!” I’ve known Alison for about 7 years now. When I got married Alison made me this huge cookbook with tons of great recipes. C’mon, how awesome is she! I’ve used so many of her recipes and some have even become staples in our home.

One of those recipes is Teriyaki Chicken salad. It is such a hit and I love to use it as a starter to a meal or even on its own for dinner. It goes really well with my sesame or peanut butter noodles. Some recipes call for a ton of unnecessary sugar and if you read my blog you know that I like to find alternatives. So I’ve adjusted these recipes to make them healthy without sacrificing any of the great taste. And of course, they’re super simple. Just the way I like it!



Sesame Noodles
1 Bag of whole wheat spaghetti or fettuccine noodles.
1/2 C. Low odium oy sauce
1/4 C. Sesame oil
1/8 C. Honey, can use up to 1/4 cup if you like it sweeter.
2 Scallions, sliced thinly using the white and dark part.
sesame seeds, to sprinkle

Boil pasta till cooked. Mix together the soy sauce, oil, and honey. Stir into the hot pasta. Mix in the scallions and sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
This can be served warm, cold, or room temperature.  


Peanut Butter Noodles
1 bag of whole wheat spaghetti or fettuccine noodles.
1/2 C. All natural peanut butter
3 TBS. Teriyaki sauce
3 TBS. Soy sauce
1 TBS. Minced garlic
3/4 tsp. Powdered ginger or fresh minced ginger if you have
1/2 C. Water or more
1/8 -1/4 C. Honey (optional if you’d like it sweeter)
optional: for some heat add a splash of siracha sauce.
Handful of chopped peanuts
Sprinkle of sesame seeds
Boil pasta till cooked. Whisk together sauce ingredients except for the honey. Add water to thin out. Taste. Add honey if you’d like it sweeter. Pour over warm pasta. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts and sesame seeds. Can be served warm, cold, or room temperature.
Note: The natural peanut butter and teriyaki sauce I used had a sweet taste therefore I did not need honey, but I have used brands before that were not sweet and I’ve added honey to balance out the flavor.

Enjoy!

Thanks Ali for having me as a guest!

  1. I am always a fan of 'Asian' flavorings when it comes to noodles. I'm definitely one of those crazy people who have added a sweetener but only honey or maple syrup, the super organic pure kind. I'm a big believer in the idea that sugar isn't that evil, its how much sugar we consume that gets us in trouble.
