Triple Sesame Noodles with Pak Choi

Hey hey!

At a loss for how to use your pak choi? Give this easy, delicious recipe a try. I made it super simple by just using pak choi but you could beef it up with other veggies or protein (steamed carrots and cubed tofu come to mind). We hope you like it!

Triple Sesame Noodles with Pak Choi
makes 6-8 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seed oil
  • 1 large head of pak choi
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 medium garlic clove, minced
  • Toasted sesame seeds for garnish

Directions:

  • Cook spaghetti according to package instructions. Drain, rinse with cold water, and drain again. Transfer to a large container, toss with sesame seed oil and set aside.
  • Slice off the root end of the pak choi and separate the leaves from the stalks. Slice both the leaves and the stalks about 1/2″ thick and clean thoroughly. Heat the vegetable oil over medium-high in a 12″ non-stick skillet until just smoking. Add the stalks and cook until the first side has started to brown, about 1-2 minutes. Stir and allow the other side to cook through and start to brown, another minute or two. Add the leaves and cook until wilted, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a colander if there appears to be some liquid in the pan. Then transfer to the bowl with the spaghetti.
  • Whisk the tahini, soy sauce, water, honey and garlic in a small mixing bowl until completely combined. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Pour over the noodles and pak choi and toss to combine. Transfer to individual serving bowls and top with the toasted sesame seeds.

Hello!

Mark and Gina aren’t setting up at market tonight but they will be there to drop off pre-ordered items from 4:30-5pm. Be sure to stop by next week and grab some goodies!

Below is a quick recipe for kohlrabi. We hope you enjoy it!

Raw Sesame Marinated Kohlrabi

Recipe note: this marinade is great for cucumbers too!

Ingredients:

  • 1-1/3 pound kohlrabi (without the stems), about 5 small, peeled and sliced into finger length pieces (about 2″ long x 1/2″ wide)
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Bragg’s Liquid Aminos or soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon white or black sesame seeds, toasted

Directions:

  • Place kohlrabi pieces into a dish that holds them in a couple of layers (you don’t want them all stacked on top of each other or they won’t marinate evenly).
  • In a small bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients together to combine then pour over the kohlrabi. You can either serve immediately or store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator and serve within a few days.
