I LOVE creamy, delicious noodle dishes.
Thick, saucy, and full of rich flavor – filled to the top with delicious healthy vegetables.
Lo mein, stir fry noodles, pad thai…. I love them all.
Street style noodles are one of my favorite meals for meatless mondays, lent- and anytime I’m craving something comforting that won’t weigh me down.
These noodles are FULL of rich and creamy flavor- thanks in part to tahini, which is a ground sesame paste. Tahini tastes a lot like peanut butter, with a little richer, more buttery flavor.
The addition of tahini in this dish is so delicious- and it also adds some lean protein which is important when you’re eschewing meat in your diet.

- Use a heavy pan to cook your noodles and vegetables quickly. I prefer these heavyweight Mineral Iron pans – they heat evenly, are nonstick naturally after seasoned, and are great instead of woks if you don’t use a wok enough to justify purchasing one.
- Customize the way you like it! Don’t like zucchini? Double up on peppers! Have an eggplant you want to use up? Toss it in! Want more or less soy or sesame flavor? Change it up! This is a crazy versatile recipe.
- Use an oil with a high smoke point. Don’t burn your oil! Peanut, grapeseed, canola are all good choices.
