Zaatar Sesame Noodles

We’re adding a new twist on an ancient, Asian recipe. This zaatar sesame noodle dish will be sure to please everyone in your family!


1  pound Chinese egg noodles (1/8-inch-thick), frozen or (preferably) fresh, available in Asian markets

2  tablespoons sesame oil, plus a splash

3 ½  tablespoons soy sauce

2  tablespoons Chinese rice vinegar

2  tablespoons Chinese sesame paste

1  tablespoon smooth peanut butter

1  tablespoon sugar

1  tablespoon finely grated ginger

2 teaspoon minced garlic

2 tablespoon of Za-ha, or to taste

Half a cucumber, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/8-inch by 1/8-inch by 2-inch sticks

¼  cup chopped roasted peanuts


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add noodles and cook until barely tender, about 5 minutes; they should retain a hint of chewiness. Drain, rinse with cold water, drain again and toss with a splash of sesame oil.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the remaining 2 tablespoons sesame oil, the soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame paste, peanut butter, sugar, ginger, garlic and Za-ha zaatar mediterranean spread.

Pour the sauce over the noodles and toss. Transfer to a serving bowl, and garnish with cucumber and peanuts.
