Summer in Scottsdale is not for the faint of heart. From June to October you can expect the high temperature to be over 100 pretty much everyday. That means I eat a lot of salads and things that do not heat up my kitchen. These cold noodles are spicy and come together with very little prep. Tom has actually been requesting noodle dishes and this one got a thumbs up!
This came from the Food Network Magazine and I didn't have to cut it in half, pretty exciting stuff. Get some water boiling and gather up some ingredients.
You need some carrots, noodles, brown sugar, peanuts, green tea, hot chili sauce, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, sesame seeds, soy sauce, and some oil. You can top it with cilantro if you are super silly and eat that stuff.
Toss the noodles in the boiling water. I used somen noodles and they cook in no time at all.
While the noodles cook assemble the rest of the ingredients in a blender or use a hand blender like I did.
Blend it up until it is a smooth sauce.
Drain the noodles and get them in a bowl.
Add in the carrots and sauce and give it a good stir.
This is the hardest part of the whole recipe, waiting! Put the noodles in the fridge and let them cool for about an hour.
After an hour or whenever your noodles cool plate them up with some peanuts and nasty cilantro if you want it. I used some green onions instead.
This was spicy and filling and Tom added this to his list of foods he would definitely eat again. I am turning that guy around one dish at a time.
