For those of you that read my prior post earlier this morning, you will know that I was going to make a few things using Meyer Lemons today. The second recipe using the lemons today turned out really great! These are noodles with a light lemon/ginger dressing. Next time I make this, I just might add chicken or shrimp to the noodles and make it more a meat type main dish. This is super easy with no cooking skills required. If you can boil water for noodles, then you can make this one!
1/4 cup Rice vinegar
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 Tbsp honey
3/4 Tbsp freshly grated ginger root
1 1/4 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
Zest of one lemon
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp sesame oil ( don't substitute this with other oils...it has a very distinct sesame flavor that is unique)
3 Tbsp olive oil
8-9 ounces whole wheat noodles of any kind ( you don't have to use whole wheat it's just what we prefer)
Chopped Green onions
(here is where you can add any of your favorite things to this dish)
Toasted sesame seeds
Combine all dressing ingredients except for both kinds of oils in a food processor or blender. Mix until thoroughly combined. After it's mixed, drizzle in both oils, while machine is running. Set aside.
Cook noodles according to package directions until done. Drain and set aside.
Toss the noodles with the dressing in a large bowl. Mix in chopped cilantro,green onions and sesame seeds.
