I have no pics of this dish because well….I AM A WINNAH!!!!! You’ll just have to trust me on this one. And please, do us all a favor and read the whole thing. I had no intention of blogging this until I said “I cooked!!!” and this general badass said she wanted the recipe.
Whatever you wanna call it. I proclaim it’s deliciousness, and you don’t NEED no stinkin’ pictures of FOOD good LORD people what’s WRONG with you??!!??
It all started with Aiming Low. We all know I like to have some achievable goals, y’all.
1 lb noodles, cooked – I used angel hair because my kids like skinny noodles. Pick whatever floats your boat as long as it’s a pound o noodles. Fettuccine, linguine, you could even use ramen (though my tummeh churns at the thought).
Dress those lovely noodles with
1/2 C soy sauce (I used Bragg’s Liquid Aminos though.)
1/3 to 1/2 C sesame oil
1/3 C sugar
1/4 C sesame seeds – toast ‘em iffin it thrills your soul. I didn’t this time because I used dark sesame oil.
Shake, whisk, and otherwise make a dressing out of those four ingredents. Last night when I made them I was SURE that 1/2 C sesame oil was waaaay too much for angel hair pasta; the noodles were guhREASY. Today when I whipped ‘em out to add in the REST of the goodness, they weren’t quite so bad but I didn’t add any other sesame oil either.
Set the noodles aside to soak up all that tasty tastiness. This time I let it sit overnight – but I had a small bowl before sticking them in the fridge.
It had to be done. I hope you appreciate the sacrifice my thighs made for you.
OH!!!! Two green onions *minimum*. Slice those delicate lovelies from the bottom up to the tough green stems.
Do not do what my child did: I told him the green leaves were tough and oniony. He immediately chomped, and then spent the next 20 minutes spitting green bits into the trash can and shouting BLECH BLECH EEW EEW EEW MOMMIE YOU TWICKED ME!!!!
Because telling a six yr old “don’t eat that” is an invitation to stuff your mouth, apparently.
I diced up two frozen chicken thighs (boneless & skinless) and cooked ‘em through in my trusty cast-iron skillet, then tossed in steamed broccollllli and cauliflower. And I really REALLY wish I’d added shredded carrots and red peppers.
Yes, there are a gracious plenty of leftover noodles.
I planned it that way.
Now I don’t hafta heat up the kitchen for delicious nomz.
