It’s easy to make and requires very little cooking for this Chinese Cold Sesame Noodles. They make a great appetizer or side dish and can be made into a substantial main course by adding a source of protein like chicken or shrimp. I’d even recommend these for meal prep as they last 4-5 days in the fridge!



  • 6 oz. whole-grain spaghetti
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil, divided
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp brown sugar or honey
  • 2 tsp peanut butter
  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • inch piece ginger, peeled and minced
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds


  1. First, cook the spaghetti according to the own package directions for al dente. Rinse the noodles under cold water and toss in 1 tbsp of sesame oil to prevent the noodles from sticking.
  2. Second, in a small bowl, combine the remaining 1 tbsp of sesame oil, the soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, and peanut butter, mixing well.
  3. Pour the mixture over the noodles then add the carrot, ginger, scallions, and sesame seeds, tossing to combine.
  4. Serve chilled.
