A Springy Noodle Stir Fry

A Springy Noodle Stir Fry

This recipe comes from Ali Slagles' new cookbook I Dream of Dinner (so you don't have to).

"The bounty of spring veg both raw and charred."

2 oranges
½ c Seed + Mill Organic Tahini 
¼ c soy sauce, Ali recommends low-sodium
1 tbsp ginger, finely grated
2lbs spring veg 
(any mix of asparagus, green beans, snap peas, snow peas)
10-12 oz ramen noodles, preferably fresh
½ c frozen, shelled edamame
sesame seeds

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Use a vegetable peeler to peel the rind from an orange. Squeeze 1 cup juice from 2 oranges into a large bowl. To the OJ, add the rind, tahini, and soy sauce. Add ginger into the bowl, season with S&P, and stir.
2. Trim the stem ends from the spring veg. Thinly slice on a diagonal ½ inch thick. Add half—only half—to the bowl, season with S&P, and stir to combine.
3. Add 10 to 12 ounces ramen noodles and edamame to the boiling water and cook according to the package directions. Drain, rinse, then stir into the sauce.
4. In the same pot, heat 2 tablespoons neutral oil over medium-high. Add the remaining half of the vegetables. Season with S&P and cook, stirring just once, until browned in spots, 2 to 4 minutes. Add everything in the sauce bowl and cook, tossing until the sauce is warm and glazy, 1 to 2 minutes. Shower with toasted sesame seeds.

Serves 4

Good hot, warm, or room temp.

Instead of ramen noodles, use soba, dried or fresh udon, or lo mein.

Brown tofu or ground chicken or pork before adding the vegetables in step 4. Remove, then add back with the sauce.

Tahini Milk Chocolate Bars

This recipe comes from Jessie Sheehan's new book Snackable Bakes, which we cannot wait to bake our way through!

"These are a take on my MIL’s Oh Henry!® bars, a fantastically chewy and flavorful bar cookie, that gives off plenty of the caramel/peanut/chocolate vibes of the actual candy. That is due to a slightly nutty oat base that is briefly cooked on the stovetop, baked, and then topped with a chocolate glaze. They were on regular rotation when my husband was growing up and I’m still jealous about that. Here, I’ve given them a little tahini makeover (usually they call for peanut butter) and I’m pretty darn excited about it."

We had a lot of fun making these skewers with the vegan kelp “meat” made by our friends at Akua! Anything that involves a grill, warm weather, good company and delicious whole ingredient food is going to keep us happy!  

We paired these skewers with a vibrant, herby tahini sauce that is perfect as a skewer dipping, drizzle sauce, salad dressing or crudite dip!
