Sesame Noodles

Sesame Noodles

Happy Friday, everyone! I feel a little gloomy today because I’ve been hearing some depressing news here and there. It just makes me think about my family and my relationship with them. And to think that they can be taken away from me just in a blink of an eye. We should really cherish every moment we spend with our families, not taking them for granted. I’m grateful for my loving and hard working husband and my two adorable boys. My four year old just made a nutella sandwich and brought it over to me. Just a little smear of nutella is in the sandwich but he’s so proud that he made it on his own. Moments like this, I’m going to cherish.


Alright, enough with all this sentimentality. Today, I’d like to share a very simple noodle recipe with you. This recipe is so simple and easy that I wonder why I never thought of making this before. This recipe goes well with any kinds of side dishes. I used soba (buckwheat noodles) and it was delicious!


Soba is a great choice for nutritional values. I didn’t used to like soba when I was younger because I was so used to rice and flour noodles. But as I get older, I am starting to appreciate the things that I didn’t enjoy before. I really like soba now and also the fact that it’s  much healthier than regular flour or rice noodles.


To make the noodles, first cook the noodles according to package instructions, then rinse the noodles in cold water until cooled. Add the sesame oil and seeds to the noodles.

Stir together with the noodles until well mixed.


And serve!

    Oh wow. I never realized how simple this dish was! Plus it looks so good!

    & Yes, sometimes I get really sad and feel eternally grateful for everyone in my family and all of friends. Life is kind of short. I guess that’s what the saying: live everyday as if it were your last is truly about. (not about partying and stuff, but about cherish everyone)
