But yes, the noodles are also good! 😉
I’m home from school today and totally felt like cooking up something gooooood for lunch. I had pinned this recipe a few weeks ago, and remembered it this morning as I was trying to figure out what to make.
It’s such a simple yet delicious recipe, and calls for ingredients that you most likely have in your house. It’s really light, yet filling and has so many delicious flavours. It’s very onion-y and garlic-y so beware if you have a date planned the next day or that night! (Pop a couple extra mints in your mouth!!)
This recipe can be served warm or cold, and you can even add other ingredients like meat or more vegetables.
Serves 4-6 people:
- 1 pound (16 oz.) linguine or spaghetti
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger (or 1/2 tsp. ground ginger)
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar (or red wine vinegar)
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon vegetable or canola oil
- 1/2 teaspoon sriracha or hot chili oil
- 1/2 cup thinly-sliced green onions
- optional garnishes: extra thinly-sliced green onions, toasted sesame seeds, coarsely-ground black pepper
- Cook pasta according to package instructions in a large pot of generously salted water.
- Meanwhile, in a separate mixing bowl, combine soy sauce, garlic, vinegar, sesame oil, vegetable oil, and sriracha (or hot chili oil). Whisk until combined.
- When the pasta is ready, drain it. Then immediately toss with the dressing and 1/2 cup green onions until the pasta is evenly coated with the dressing.
- Serve immediately, topped with extra garnishes if desired.
