[Recipe] Sesame Noodles

Posted by Obake on Jul 14, 2011 in Gluten Free, Recipes |

A simple dinner I made tonight that is perfect for the hot summer weather we are having. Vietnamese markets are awesome places for getting cheap rice noodles in Metro Detroit, and John R road has quite a few of these, the biggest being Saigon Market. Last time I went shopping, I bought a lot of Bahn Pho, which are thick rice noodles that are used in the Vietnamese soup, Pho. They make a great anagram to spaghetti, and can be used in any application that requires spaghetti or udon noodles. Today I used them in a cold noodle salad, because it is 83F here at 2am, and there is no way I’m going to eat warm anything.

Start out with 1 lb of the medium sized Bahn Pho noodles. The sizes refer to the thickness of the noodles, and medium is closest to the familiar long noodles we are accustomed to. You can get them in sizes from small, clear noodles that are finer than angel hair, to huge flakes.

Second, you’ll need Gluten Free Tamari made by San J, which appears to be the only company besides Kikkoman that makes soy sauce or tamari that is gluten free. I got it reasonably priced at Meijer, which appears to be the only place that carries it.

Third, Sesame oil and sesame seeds. The best place to get these are Fuji Market or E-Mart.

Fourth, any sort of veggies you feel like cutting up. I used courgette, onions, and water chestnuts in mine.

Fifth, meat, if desired. I used the rest of the pulled pork in the first dish I made from this. Any meat or tofu is fine.

Bahn Pho will get gloppy if it is overcooked, so cook it only about 6-7 minutes. Drain and rinse until the water runs clear. Add the oil, tamari, and sesame seeds. Mix, then add the vegetables, mix again, and add the meat. Eat promptly.
