Sesame Ginger Noodles

Jump to Recipe

Sesame and Ginger is one of my fav flavor combos. It works great on salad, salmon, chicken, steak... you name it. Today though, it's working it's magic on some noodles... Sesame Ginger Noodles to be exact! These noodles are equally versatile, you can add pork meatballs or eat them as is, they are lovely!!

These Sesame Ginger Noodles are PERFECT for a very quick weeknight dinner. They are even better the next day for leftovers. And you could even throw them into a skillet if they've been sitting around for 3+ days and make it into a stir fry with some scrambled eggs. For sure wouldn't be mad at that!!

Every ingredient in this recipe packed a punch. We're loaded up with tons of ginger, plenty of garlic, all the scallions, a bit of soy sauce (or coconut aminos if you prefer), and then of course the ramen noodles. Those are really the vehicle for all the flavor.

You could sub the ramen noodles or angel hair or spaghetti if you prefer. You could sub the noodles entirely for rice if that's more your jam. And you could def add some grilled chicken, shrimp, tofu or steak to the top of this to give it some protein. Bottom line is... you're going to love it! I've been obsessed ever since it popped up on BA and there's no changing that!

    I made this tonight and it came together beautifully and quickly! I didn't have ramen noodles so I used Udon instead. I also topped the noodles off with a fried egg for some protein and added some sliced jalapenos for heat! YUM!

  2. 3 stars
    The flavors were very good but it was very oily. I think it would be better with a thicker soy sauce based sauce rather than oil.

  3. This is seems like this is just a Bon Appetit recipe from an issue on noodles that was done a few months ago. While I know recipe developers often borrow from each other’s work, it’d be nice if you credited them and just said you have your own spin or whatever. Unless it’s just a crazy coincidence...But you profit off of recipe development, so would be nice to see you kicking some clicks back to the original.

    1. Hey Annie!! you are so right and I did point back to their recipe in my post!! With the redesign the link backs are not a different color - something we're working on fixing since we just relaunched! Always like to attribute / pay respect to whoever inspired the recipe!!

    2. Ah, I see it now at the bottom. So sorry, I’m glad to see the attribution. Especially as I love your recipes overall. Thanks.

  4. I don't see seasame oil listed in the ingredients but it is in the instructions. How much seasame oil do you use?

  5. Gabby,

    I believe you forgot to put the quantity of sesame oil in the recipe. Can you please tell me how much to add?
