Oriental Noodle Toss With Black Beans

Hi Everyone!

I hope you had a great weekend!  I sure did!  It was a beautiful, sunny weekend here in Michigan!  We actually got to spend most of it together as a family, especially Sunday.  We had not been to an apple orchard together as a family at all this year because of work and Nutcracker practice!  It’s our favorite time of the year so we were a bit sad that we missed!  So yesterday, after church, we headed out to one that was still open this late in the season.  It was beautiful!  The girls had fun feeding the animals and playing around.  Time went way too quick and we are back to Monday and all the week entails!  With that comes a new recipe I would like to share (actually two).

Today for dinner we are having Oriental Noodle Toss with Black Beans and Green Beans  with Almonds and Bacon.  The Oriental Toss is a new recipe for me so I am not sure we will like it!  It sounds good, so I’ll give it a try!

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients
1tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp ginger, fresh grated is best
8 oz spaghetti noodles
1 can black beans, rinsed & drained
3 green onions, tops and bottoms chopped
1 pkg (10 oz) pea pods or snow peas, frozen
Notes / Directions
Put a large pot of water on to boil.Stir together sesame oil, soy sauce and ginger in a medium-large serving bowl.As soon as water boils, stir in pasta and set timer for 6-9 minutes.Add to bowl the beans and onions.When timer sounds, add pea pods to boiling noodles for 1 minute. Drain. Toss with beans and sauce.

I’ll let you know how it turned out!

  1. Update: Thumbs up! It turned out and tasted great! The one thing I will do differently next time is make 1/2 more of the sauce: 1 1/2 tsp Sesame Oil; 3 tbsp Soy Sauce and 3/4 tsp ginger.
