Sesame & Peanut Noodles
3 tbsp sesame seeds
375g rice fettuccini pasta/noodles
¼ cup peanut butter
3 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
2 garlic cloves, finely sliced
½ cup coconut milk (see below recipe)
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 lime, zest grated
1 handful fresh coriander leaves, roughly chopped
2 scallions, white and greens finely sliced
½ small red cabbage, thinly shredded
1 yellow capsicum, thinly sliced
1 red capsicum, thinly sliced
1 small red chili (optional), finely sliced
Whole Food Coconut Milk:
Carefully open the top of 1 fresh young coconut with a chef knife or other suited tool. Spoon out the flesh and pour the liquid into a high speed blender. Blend until smooth.
Alternatively put 1 cup shredded/desiccated coconut and 4 cups water into a high speed blender. Blend to a liquid then use within the recipe.
Place the sesame seeds in a frying pan and toast gently over a medium heat until light golden in colour for 2 to 3 minutes (keep them moving in the pan so they don’t burn), then set aside.
Place a large pot of water on a high heat, bring to the boil. Add the fettuccini /noodles and cook until al dente. Drain, rinse and set aside.
For the peanut dressing:
Place the peanut butter into a saucepan. Add ½ a cup of whole food coconut milk. Add 3 tbsp of soy sauce. Add 2 tbsp of rice vinegar. Add the grated ginger, garlic slices, lime zest and chopped red chili. Add 2 tbsp
maple syrup. Add the juice of 1 lime. Stir well. Place on a high heat and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat and set aside. (Dressing should be thick, but pourable.)
Place the pasta/noodles in a large mixing bowl. Add the chopped coriander, shredded red cabbage, sliced scallions, and capsicums. Toss with the peanut dressing. Top with the toasted sesame seeds and serve.
