Earlier this year I made a recipe with rice noodles for the first time. I don’t think I had ever eaten them before then but they are one of my new favorites! Between rice noodles and udon noodles, I’m not sure which one I would choose.

Sesame noodles are a great side dish to anything with the soy sauce, sesame, or teriyaki flavors to it. We made this to pair with Soy Sesame Salmon and it was perfect.

Rice noodles are easy to cook, but you also have to watch your timing on them. Make sure to follow the directions closely to get the right consistency.

  1. Yum! I wasn’t a huge fan of noodles before but as I’ve gotten older I have craved eating noodles more and more. I am not sure if it’s my palate changing or if I really do just love carbs. These sesame noodles look very good and I love that they are simple to make. Those are my favorite type of recipes!
