What to Eat Wednesday



I got this recipe from our doula/turned into friend, Amanda, after we had Savanna. Amanda was there for our first 2 births, and supported me through Luke's pregnancy, and went to the hospital for a day of consulting and ultrasounds after we found out that Luke would be born with a cleft. She took notes asked questions, looked information up online, and told me that I probably did not want to read any of that right then, but when I was ready I would have the information. I have lost contact with her for some time now. But last month I heard her on NPR! I was so surprised to hear her voice. 

I was sure that I had blogged this one- but I just can't seem to find it.  Maybe I was never able to take the photos because we ate it all.  I made sure to snag a bowl first and get photos before eating this time.

I hardly ever have anything left over after making this. Jack begged to save some to take in his lunch cold. 
Chicken and Spicy Sesame Noodles

Sauce
9 green onions
1 1/2 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 TB ginger root peeled and minced
3/4 tsp red pepper flakes (a pinch of cayenne pepper makes it not so spicy)
3 1/2 TB vinegar (rice vinegar if you have it)
(2 TB sesame paste- I have never, ever, ever had this on hand- so it works fine without it)
4 cloves garlic

Other
1 pound spaghetti or angel hair pasta
2-3 TB oil
1 cucumber peeled and sliced
4 chicken breasts cooked and cubed
sesame seeds

In a skillet heat the oil on high and add all ingredients under sauce. Stir and cook together for 5 minutes. pour sauce over the pasta. Mix together and put in a serving dish. Garnish edges with cucumber. Place the cubed chicken in the center. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.

This is still one of my favorite recipes. It now known around the world! I made it when we were visiting in the Netherlands, for Tom's family when they were visiting us from Poland, and a number of other guests we had from Scotland. So if you ever talk to her again you should let her know who popular her recipe is.
