Nigella’s sesame peanut noodles

It is very probable that I am repeating myself, but I think the cokbook Nigella Express gets better and better everytime I pick it up. It contains plenty of weekday recipes, which  is great. And this recipe is from that book. I have made it many times, and you can eat it as it is or have maybe some chicken scewers with it. And it is perfect for the lunch box the next day.

Sesame peanut noodles, serves 4


1 tbsp sesame oil

1 tbsp garlic oil (or regular olive oil)

1 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce

100 g peanutbutter

2 tbsp lime juice


125g mange tout

150 g beansprouts

1 red pepper, sliced

2 spring onions, sliced

550 g cooked cool egg noodles

20g sesame seeds

4 tbsp chopped coriander

Mix the ingredients for the dressing in a bowl. Add everything but sesame seeds and coriander. Mix throughly. Add extra olive oil if it feels to dry. Add sesame seeds and coriander just before serving.
