Noodles with Tahini Lemon Sauce
Finding quick homemade lunches that aren't leftovers or sandwiches can be a challenge. This has been the year of the noodle lunch for me. Noodle dishes are something I've enjoyed but never really enough to make myself. I think I'm just a rice-lover but brown rice (my rice of choice) takes a while to cook. Hence, noodles have come into my life in a big way.
This tahini, water, lemon and a dash of ume vinegar "dressing" brightens up my greens and creates a kind of faux Alfredo on these noodles. I blanched some veggie and added them for some additional color , texture and nutrition. Some fried tempeh or tofu would have been a nice addition as well.
What are your ideas for quick lunches?
