Blogging Marathon# 69: Week 2/ Day 3
Theme: Homemade Chinese Takeaway Food
Dish: Chinese Cold Sesame Noodles (Liang Mian)

For the final day of this week’s ‘Homemade Chinese Takeaway Food‘, I have a very easy to make and very flavorful Chinese cold sesame noodles. The main ingredient in this dish is Chinese style sesame paste which is very different from middle eastern tahini. This is made with roasted sesame seeds.

Chinese Sesame Noodles

I made a trip to the local Chinese grocery and bought some fresh noodles and sesame paste. If you only have tahini, then add a little toasted sesame oil to it and use it in the dish. Or you can roast your own sesame seeds and grind it into a fine paste. I found fresh Hong Kong noodles in the refrigerator section, but you can use fresh or frozen egg noodles or even standard size spaghetti would be a great alternate here.

The recipe is very simple with a no-cook sauce. All the ingredients are mixed into a sauce and then tossed with the cooked noodles. You can add more vegetables if you like. Next time I make this dish I’ll probably add some baked tofu or edamame or fried egg to make it a complete meal.

I made all the 3 dishes (Cucumber Salad and Tofu Skin Noodles) for this week’s theme on one day. It was a delicious and filling Chinese meal. But the good thing was, everything was done in less than 40 minutes. So it’s a quick and easy meal to make too.
