How to serve Sesame Noodles?

This dish can be served hot or cold. I prefer it still warm, freshly made, garnished with sliced green onions and toasted sesame seeds. You can also add protein like chicken, pork, or baked salmon. To make it spicy, add sriracha or chili paste.

Is Chinese sesame paste the same as tahini?

Both products are made from sesame seeds, but Chinese paste is made from toasted seeds. They give it a slightly darker and deeper nutty flavor. Tahini is made from raw sesame seeds so it’s milder in flavor and lighter in color.

How to store leftovers?

Any leftovers should be stored in a container with a lid, in the fridge, for up to 3 days. The sauce will be absorbed by the noodles, which is normal, so you may need to add a splash of water or stock. It’s also good to have extra sauce on hand if you know you will be having leftovers.
