Chinese hoisin sauce gives this healthy sesame noodle recipe just a touch of sweetness. Be sure to rinse the noodles until they're cold, then give them a good shake in the colander until they're well drained. Are you a spiralizing pro? Swap 5 cups of raw zucchini, carrot or other veggie “noodles” for the cooked pasta.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Cook noodles in a pot of boiling water according to package directions. Drain, rinse and transfer to a large bowl.

  • Combine sesame oil, scallions, garlic, ginger and brown sugar in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat until starting to sizzle. Cook for 15 seconds. Remove from heat and stir in soy sauce and hoisin. Add to the noodles along with tofu, broccoli, bell pepper and peanuts; gently stir to combine.


Make Ahead Tip: Refrigerate sauce and noodle mixture separately for up to 1 day; toss together before serving.

People with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.
