Cold Sesame Noodles

Lapsang Souchong is a Chinese tea with an intriguing pungent, smoky, “tarry” taste. As a drink, you will either love it or hate it, but you will always love it in a dressing or marinade. Settle for Earl Grey if you don’t have it on hand.

Children love these noodles: I used to make oodles of them in my catering years. Here is a good place to sneak in a perfectly healthy pasta such as soba or rice noodles.

You’ll be happy to have this sauce on hand, not only for this noodle dish but for grilled chicken or fish, or even as a salad dressing.

Ingredients:

1 pound soba noodles, boiled according to manufacturer’s instructions, drained and rinsed

1 cup Thai dressing (recipe follows), or a little more if necessary

Instructions:

Toss the noodles with the dressing just before serving

Dressing:

1 cup strong Lapsang Souchong tea (2 tea bags steeped in 1 cup boiling water)

½ cup coconut milk

½ cup peanut butter

¼ cup toasted sesame oil

¼ cup soy sauce

¼ cup brown rice vinegar

2-inch piece ginger

1 stalk lemongrass, 2–3 outer leaves removed, or 2 tablespoons powder

2–3 tablespoons bottled hot sauce

4 scallions, sliced

6 sprigs cilantro, stems discarded

-Cream the first set of ingredients in a food processor. Pulse in the scallions and cilantro. Transfer to a glass jar and store in the refrigerator.
