This is a great lunch - it's a recipe that we all love and Cara loves the udon noodles
Prep time: 15 minutes
Makes 4 servings
8 ounces udon or soba noodles
3 tablespoons tahini
1 tablespoon almond or cashew butter
1 teaspoon maple syrup
2 tablespoons brown rice vinegar
2 tablespoons tamari or shoyu
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
Cook noodles in plenty of boiling water according to directions on package.
While noodles cook, make the sauce. Put the remaining ingredients in small bowl and blend. Add enough warm water to create a creamy texture.
Rinse and drain cooked noodles. Pour sauce over noodles and toss well.
For babies 10 months and older:
Omit sauces. Cut plain noodles into bite-size pieces and serve.
Variation for children:
Try serving the sauce on the side and letting children dip the noodles in the sauce.
