Cold Sesame Noodles are a super easy and delicious recipe great for meal prep or a quick on the go salad. This version is made with hearts of palm noodles to bring down the calories and carbs compared to traditional recipes.

Cold sesame Noodle Salad or side dish??

Cold Sesame Noodles are so versatile because it goes with so many different proteins. Sesame Noodles are served on their own or as a side dish alongside crispy chicken thighs or sliced pork loin. My personal favorite is to serve sesame noodles with poached shrimp and 7 minute soft boiled eggs. Because I used the hearts of palm noodles I reduce the carb count significantly compared to using traditional rice noodles. Calories are also lower so I can add extra protein to my meals. You Can also make this recipe with Zucchini noodles or any other low carb pasta alternatives.

Meal Prep Sunday

This recipe is meant to be served cold so you can make a lot of it in a short amount of time. I will make a double batch of sesame noodles along with shrimp, chicken and pork then portion them out into Reusable Meal Prep Containers. Each meal has a different protein to give me variety throughout the week. I mentioned above that I love to make 7 minute soft boiled eggs with sesame noodles. They’re easy to make and that jammy yolk porn goodness adds flavor and healthy fats.

The Peanut sauce dressing for the cold sesame noodles can be used for all kinds of recipes. It can be a dipping sauce for chicken or shrimp as well as fantastic Thai peanut wing sauce.

    I’ve now made this twice in as many weeks for dinner! What an easy low carb meal. and its tasty! Even better on day two! I used “Healthy Noodle”, found at my Costco instead of Palmini. If you don’t like spice as much, cut back on the Sambal Oelek. It’s a pretty spicy dish. The second time I added a little bit of shredded Napa cabbage, which was left over from Culinary Lion’s Larp lettuce bowls. It’s been a Culinary Lion week!

      I really need to try those healthy noodles, my Costco hasn’t had them but I’ll keep a lookout for them!

      So, I have used Sambal Oelek in other recipes and it is good but it it SPICY/HOT! I usually have to cut it quite a bit and we do like some heat here…we are hot wing lovers. How would you both cut the heat a bit so that we have a high mild/medium heat that someone could adjust by adding something to their personal noodles. This sounds like a perfect summer recipe! I have not seen these noodles at our Costco, but love that Palmini comes in pouches now. Could Konjac pasta be used as well?

        you can cut the amount of Sambal and replace with maybe some diced roasted red peppers and yes you can substitute Konjac Noodles. Definitely a great summertime recipe
