cold sesame noodles

Cold Sesame Noodles are a real treat, for children big and small.

Lapsang Souchong is a Chinese tea with an intriguing pungent, smoky, “tarry” taste. As a drink, you will either love it or hate it, but you will always love it in a dressing or marinade, and of course in cold noodles. Settle for Earl Grey if you don’t have it on hand.

I used to make oodles of cold sesame noodles in my catering years.

Cold Sesame Noodles are a great place to sneak in a perfectly healthy pasta:

Try soba or rice noodles, and many other gluten-free noodles

You’ll be happy to have this sauce on hand, not only for these noodles, but for grilled chicken or fish, or even as a salad dressing.



  • 1 pound soba noodles, or rice noodles, boiled according to manufacturer’s instructions, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup peanut butter dressing

Peanut Butter Dressing:

  • 1 cup strong Lapsang Souchong tea (2 tea bags steeped in 1 cup boiling water). Settle for Earl Grey
  • 2 pouches Levana Nourishments Mushroom Medley
  • ½ cup full-fat canned coconut milk
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ¼ cup toasted sesame oil
  • ¼ cup soy sauce or aminos
  • ¼ cup brown rice vinegar
  • 2-inch piece ginger
  • 2–3 tablespoons bottled hot sauce
  • 4 scallions, sliced
  • 6 sprigs cilantro, stems discarded, minced

Cream the first set of ingredients in a food processor. Stir in the scallions and cilantro. Transfer to a glass jar and store in the refrigerator. If you notice the dressing thickened too much, thin it with a little water or tea.


Toss the noodles with the dressing just before serving.
