Chilled noodles make nice cool meals for summer days but we also love to eat them in the winter. You can use any type of asian noodles and even angel hair pasta to make chilled noodles. They are espeicially good with the homemade noodles we blogged about previously.
To prepare the noodles, simply cook as required for the type of noodle you use and rinse in cold or iced water.
To made our Spinach and garlic sauce you will need (for 1 serving):
- 1 tbsp Soy sauce
- 1 -2 tbsp Seasoned rice vinegar (or rice vinegar, salt, and sugar)
- 1/2 tsp Chili oil
- Raw garlic (Diced)
- About 1/4 cup chopped spinach (thawed)
Mix the above ingredients and adjust to taste. Toss in the noodles, add a dash of Furikake (sesame seeds and dried seaweed) and you are ready to eat.
You might add extra sugar if the sauce is too sour. We like Chu Chow Chili Oil best, but you can substitute with your favorite hot sauce or make your own chili oil by pan frying or soaking chili peppers with garlic.
