Recipe: Peanut-Sesame Noodles with Broccoli Slaw

There's still plenty of time to enter my King Arthur Flour Giveaway!

My parents went out of town, and gave me a big bag of produce so that it wouldn't go bad while they are gone.  In the big bag was plenty of broccoli slaw.  Mmmmm.

I saw this recipe for cold sesame noodles on Pinterest and I really wanted to use it as a starting point for something with the broccoli slaw.  I wanted to make homemade noodles.  You could easily use store bought spaghetti.

I've made peanut noodles before, but I wanted to try a different recipe.  This one called for tahini, which I happen to have, and need to use.  There you go.  And, it's always fun to make healthy food for kids - and with kids!  Wish I'd gotten some pictures of The Boy helping me make these noodles!  He did a stellar job.

Peanut-Sesame Noodles with Broccoli Slaw

Homemade Noodles:
3/4 c whole wheat flour
3/4 c all purpose flour
2 eggs
1/2 Tbsp sesame oil
~2 Tbsp water

Sesame Peanut Sauce:
3 Tbsp tahini
1 tsp sesame oil
2 Tbsp smooth peanut butter
2 tsp fresh ground ginger
2 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp rice vinegar
2 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp sweet Thai chili sauce

2-3 c broccoli slaw
cilantro (optional)
sesame seeds (optional)

To make the noodles - Combine all ingredients in a food processor and mix until combined.  Add extra water if it's needed to make the dough hold together.  Form into a ball and wrap in saran wrap to rest for 15-30 minutes.  Using plenty of flour, roll as thin as possible - to 6 on my Atlas pasta maker - and dust the sheet with flour before running though the thin noodle cutter (spaghetti) in the machine.  Cook in a large pot of boiling water for about 3-5 minutes, or until al dente.  Drain.
To make the sauce - heat the oil in a sauce pan and cook the ginger and garlic for about 30 seconds.  Remove from heat and stir in the additional ingredients.
They boy's bowl
Pour the sauce over the noodles, and stir in the broccoli slaw.  Chill if desired.  Serve topped with a sprinkling of cilantro, sesame seeds, and extra Thai chili sauce if desired.

Mine... mmmm!
