Ginger Sesame Noodles with Broccoli
This was a fast-to-throw-together weeknight meal from a couple nights ago. And when we're looking for fast and easy recipe ideas these days we often open up Quick Fix Vegetarian. Our very slightly modified version of this recipe involved whisking together a sauce of tahini, brown sugar, rice vinegar, soy sauce and water. We got some whole wheat spaghetti cooking and while that was happening we cooked garlic and lots of ginger in a little peanut oil. The sauce was added to that, and then in went the cooked spaghetti, along with broccoli that was added to the spaghetti pot for the last few minutes of cooking. Everything was tossed together along with a little sesame oil, and then it was sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds at the end. Delicious and done in 30 minutes flat (and that includes some time for washing a few dishes).
