Recipe #3: Broccoli Tahini noodles

From the Buurtbrief (Neighborhood newsletter) April 2023, by Bracha

Life is busy here on the Wolphaertstraat. We have kids, animals, demanding jobs, full schedules and then suddenly it's almost dinner time again. Every single day.

For me, as a cook, it's not that difficult to throw together a few ingredients and make something that everyone likes—including my children.

Here then, a suuuper easy, tasty, and vegan recipe.

All ingredients can be found at your local supermarket. I personally prefer to go to Yasam, especially for the veggies... then I feel less ripped off than when I go to MCD. However, for that yummiest brand of noodles, it's still best to go to the MCD.

Ingredients (from the Yasam)

  • Tahini 1/3 cup

  • 1 tablespoon chopped ginger

  • 3 teaspoons cane sugar

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 clove of garlic

  • a squeeze of Harissa (or sambal) to your taste

  • small bowl of toasted sesame seeds for garnish

  • lime for sprinkling

  • 1 broccoli cut in florets

Ingredients (from the MCD)

  • rice vinegar

  • Udon noodles

  • sesame oil

Blend the tahini, ginger, soy sauce, cane sugar, garlic, and harissa in a small blender or with a hand blender to make a nice smooth sauce. If it is not liquid enough you can add a few tablespoons of water.

Cook the noodles as described on the package. Once cooked, stir in a little sesame oil and set aside.

Fry the broccoli florets over medium-high heat in a wok for 5 minutes until softened and a little browned.

Add the tahini sauce to the pan and gently stir the noodles into the sauce and broccoli. Serve with lime and sesame seeds.

It's that easy.

Enjoy your meal!
