Tahini Noodles are Asian inspired vegan noodles. The noodles are cooked and combined with a flavorful tahini sauce that is a touch sweet, has a slight hint of heat and the brightness of fresh ginger. Fresh vegetables are added in for pretty color and a nice crunch.
Tahini Noodles can be served as a meatless meal or as a side dish. Tahini is a ground sesame paste and a source of protein. The noodles can be served either warm or at room temperature. They are delicious either way.
