Year Of The Rabbit

“A placid year, very much welcomed and needed after the ferocious year of the Tiger.”



Last Friday at dance class, while flipping through the February issue of Disney Family Fun magazine, I came across a recipe for Chinese Peanut-Sesame Noodles.

I wanted to see how it compared to this recipe. {I like the added veggies in this recipe, but both are excellent!}

And what better night to serve it than Chinese New Year…

I added grilled chicken and served with edamame on the side.

It was too spicy for the tikes, but you could certainly omit the chili paste. Also, if you don’t have tahini on hand you could easily substitute with the same amount of peanut butter.

These noodles were quick and easy ~ I had all the ingredients except for the scallions.

Delicious warm or cold.

You’ve got to make this!

My sister turned me onto these last Summer and they were a fave throughout the season.

I substitute cucumber and carrots for the apple and jicama…I also use red onion in place of the scallions. This time I used about 5 ounces of udon noodles instead of the spaghetti and it gave it more of an Asian flair!

Yummy warm or cold.

You can also make it as sort of a macaroni salad and use whole wheat macaroni. Super easy and portable in the warmer months since there is no mayo. Add chicken, too for a heartier meal!
