Sesame Noodle Salad

  • Servings : 6-8
  • Prep Time : 15m
  • Ready In : 15m

This is a nice chilled dish to fill you up on a hot day.  It’s best served chilled, has some kick to it, and with the ingredients I already had in my pantry, cost me about $3 to make a couple of pounds.


  • 1 package of spaghetti
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/3 cup sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup tamari
  • 1 lime, squeezed
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp of ginger powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • If you have vegan worcestershire sauce, like this, add a teaspoon of it


Step 1

Cook the noodles.

Step 2

While they are cooking, prep the veggies.

Step 3

Add all the ingredients, except the carrot and cilantro, to a bowl and mix.

Step 4

When the noodles are cooked, give them a cold water rinse to get the starch off, and put them in a big bowl with the carrots and cilantro.

Step 5

Dump the smaller bowl of liquids on top of the pasta, and mix thoroughly. Serve chilled.

Jake switched to a plant based diet in 1996 and quickly realized he had no idea how to cook. All these years later and he's still trying to figure it out...
