A 3 ingredient sauce is always a winner for me. No-cook-just-mix-it-up? Even better. Wholesome ingredients? My joy is full. Are you ready? It’s so easy.
Equal amounts of tahini, honey and soy sauce .
I did 1/8 cup of each, and it was enough for 2 large bowls of noodles.
(Optional extras for a hotter sauce are crushed root ginger/chilli/garlic.)
- Cook your wholegrain noodles (be they wholewheat, brown rice noodles, buckwheat “soba” noodles, wholegrain spelt noodles, whatever….just go for unrefined 🙂 ) Blue Dragon do a wholewheat version. I got quite excited about that.
- Meanwhile, briefly steam some broccoli and/or peas, or basically, anything green you like.
- Spoon over some sauce. This sauce is salty-strong, so spoon some over, mix it through and taste before adding more.
- Sprinkle with copious amounts of chopped spring onion and extra sesame seeds if desired.
GORGEOUS SAUCE!!! No photo. If you make it, take one and send it to me 🙂
This was a pilot version, tested on myself and Isaac, and I will definitely be trying this on the girls. I am thinking about trying a variation with almond or maybe even peanut butter though, as they deeply dislike sesame ( they have both tried it before they declared how gross it was, full marks!) I am not sure they will like even a variation …..I struggle with food-picky children like the next parent, but I would love to get them enjoying new flavours.
The nights are closing in.
With one copious lunch salad and a new wholegrain noodle dish under my belt, (literally) I am about to put on my PJ’s , blitz some sesame seeds and cook
myself us up some tahini toffee. It just seems like the right thing to do.
