Sesame Peanut Noodles
Another recipe for the I Heart Cooking Club from Nigella Express. This book is full of super quick recipes. Thank God for scanners so I was able to return it to the library without having to pay overdue fines while I try all the recipes I want to. Nigella Lawson is one of my favorite celebrity chefs and this recipe did not disappoint. I have since made this recipe many times and it is an instant crowd pleaser.

Bring it to your next potluck party or barbecue and everyone will be asking you for the recipe.

The original recipe used creamy peanut butter, but I like the textural variety of crunchy style peanut butter.

Here are some other options to bring on your summer picnic.

Brussel Sprout Soba Noodles
Tabbouleh Salad
Black Eyed Pea Salad
Corn Salsa
Moroccan Couscous Salad

 This is very addictive. Once you start eating it, it will be difficult to stop.

OMG – the flavors in this are amazing – sweet, salty and spicy. If you prefer it less spicy, you can omit the chili oil. It can be eaten, warm, at room temperature or chilled. A great option for summer barbecue’s.
