Spicy Thai Noodles

When it comes to noodles, it’s all about the sauce. This one is full of flavor, without any added oil. The blend of sesame paste, tamarind and tamari along with the sweetness of dates, creates a sauce with complexity. The added kick of sriracha brings in just the right amount of heat.

Spicy Thai Noodles

1 Tbsp tamarind paste
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp tamari or nama shoyu
1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds
1/4 tsp thai curry paste or sriracha
2 pitted dates, soaked in warm water for about 20 minutes
1/3 cup tahini
1/4 cup water (or more if you want a thinner consistency)

Blend all ingredients together and toss with noodles and vegetables to coat. May be served cold or hot.
