Cold Sesame Noodles (Courtesy of Weight Watchers-altered by me)
12 oz pkg chow mein noodles (or spaghetti)
1/3 c reduced-fat smooth peanut butter
1/3 c water
3 Tbsp ketchup
2 Tbsp Hoisin sauce
2 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp packed light brown sugar
1 Tbsp rice vinegar
1 tsp Asian (dark) sesame oil
2 scallions, chopped
Cook the noodles according to package directions. Drain, rinse with cold water, and set aside.
Combine peanut butter, water, ketchup, hoisin, soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, and sesame oil in a small saucepan. Bring to boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until well mixed. Remove from heat and let cool 10 minutes. Toss the noodles with the sauce, sprinkle with scallions, and serve.
Very fast. Very simple. Very filling. Toddler approved. And quite tastey. I serve mine up with a side of steamed veggies.
