Happy New Year! Did you catch my Top 10 Recipes of 2010? I’ll cover my goals for the year towards the end of the week, so today we’ll get right to the first recipe of 2011.
I saw this recipe for Sesame Peanut Sauce and was intrigued. Tea steeped for 3 hours? Happens sometimes when I forget about my mug. Peanut butter? A daily staple. Garlic, ginger, and sesame seeds? Like ’em all. So on New Year’s Day, my first order of business was pulling this sauce together. And then I used it to make these cold sesame noodles with broccoli. This was a great recipe, and perfect for slurping up while relaxing on a holiday. But this got even better when it sat in the refrigerator for a day, so it will make a great packed lunch!
6 oz. whole wheat linguine, cooked, drained, and rinsed in cold water
8 oz. chopped broccoli, steamed, drained, and rinsed in cold water
1/2 c. Sesame Peanut Sauce
Mix noodles, broccoli, and peanut sauce in a bowl. Serve immediately, or chill for a few hours in the refrigerator.
