Creamy Sesame and Broccoli Noodles
As the days are getting colder, my desire to indulge in more comforting foods increases.
I have not yet hopped on the pumpkin bandwagon, but I have definitely hopped on the pasta/noodle train!
What I absolutely love about these noodles is the fact they are so quick and easy to put together! Honestly, this is the type of recipe you can make on a whim. Just mix the sauce ingredients together, cook the pasta (and the broccoli in the same water!), drain, drop in the sauce and you are good to go!
The sauce of these ramen noodles is definitely what sets it apart. Made with silky tahini; it is just creamy to perfection without being overly rich and without the flavour of the tahini overpowering everything.
These noodles are delicious eaten alongside cast-iron grilled toful!
Well… On that note, if on a chilly night you are craving a plate (or bowl!) of creamy noodles, swimming in a umami tahini sauce and served with fresh broccoli, look no further, this one is for YOU!
If you do end up making this recipe, be sure to share it on social media and tag me (@muriellebanackissa).
Have a wonderful week my friends!
