Sesame Ginger Noodles

Tonight's dinner needed a side dish so I quickly made some Sesame Ginger Noodles. They were a HUGE hit with my son, so I decided to type up the recipe.

Sesame Ginger Noodles
(serves 4 as side dish, double recipe for main dish)

1/2 package Chow Mein noodles
1 Tbsp oil
1/4 cup sliced carrots
1/4 cup sliced celery
1 green onion diced
2 Tbsp soy sauce, plus more to taste
3-6 Tbsp Litehouse Sesame Ginger Dressing & Sauce, plus more to taste
2 Tbsp sesame seeds (optional)

  • Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Boil noodles until softened, 5 minutes or so. Drain and return to pan.
  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Toss in carrots and celery and stir fry until crisp-tender. Reduce heat to medium. Add green onion, drained noodles, soy sauce and Sesame Ginger dressing. Toss to coat.
  • Taste noodles for seasoning preferences. Add more Sesame Ginger dressing for sweetness, more soy sauce for saltiness. Top with sesame seeds and serve.
Options: Other fresh vegetables may also be used; this was just what I had on hand. (try mushrooms, yellow onion, peas, green or red bell peppers, even toss in chicken chunks!) You can also use mixed frozen veggies for a quick variation. They have stir-fry varieties in the freezer section.

Did you mean "Lo Mein" Noodles? I found Chow Mein but they were crunchy. We used Rice Noodles which were okay but not quite right.
