Here is a currently very popular Taiwanese noodle recipe. Its called Sesame and peanut paste noodles 麻醬麵. These noodles can provide a very tasty vegetarian option as a side dish or you can make it into a main with the addition of some cooked gammon slices like I did. The sesame-peanut sauce which you make for the noodles is also a good one for accompaniment with both fried pork and chicken. There’s lots of ingredients but don’t worry it will probably work out well enough if you have the core items of sesame paste, peanut butter, olive oil and soy sauce.
The ingredients 食材 for 2 people;
- 2tbsp sesame paste
- 1tbsp peanut butter,
- 2tbsp soy sauce
- 2tbsp Worcester sauce
- 1tbsp vinegar,
- 1tsp of sesame and chilli oils
- 1tsp sugar,

- 2 bunches noodles
- some ham
