Recipe Ingredients for Cold Sesame Noodles

5 tablespoons sesame seeds
5 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 cup peanut butter
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon ginger
2 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon Tabasco
1 tablespoon salt
1 pound soba noodles
4 scallions
1 medium carrot
1 red bell pepper

Recipe Directions for Cold Sesame Noodles

  1. Toast the sesame seeds in a small skillet over medium heat, stirring, until golden and fragrant, about 10 minutes. Reserve 1 tablespoon of the sesame seeds. Puree the remaining 4 tablespoons sesame seeds with the soy sauce, peanut butter, vinegar, sugar, ginger, garlic, and Tabasco in a blender or food processor until smooth, about 30 seconds. With the machine running, add the hot water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the sauce has the consistency of heavy cream (you may not need all the water).

  2. Cook the noodles in 6 quarts boiling water seasoned with the salt until tender, about 4 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water until cool. Shake out the excess water and transfer to a large bowl. Add the scallions, carrot, red pepper, and sesame sauce and toss to combine. Arrange on a serving platter (or divide among individual bowls) and sprinkle with the reserved sesame seeds.
