Taiwanese Cold Sesame Noodles

For this recipe we used Kuan Mio noodles (also known as Guan Miau or Guan Miao) which are Taiwanese thin noodles.

Kuan miao noodles

These bouncy noodles come from the Guanmiao District of Taiwan and are commonly used in soups or fried noodle dishes! They made only with flour and water and are preserved by naturally sun drying. Kuan Mio noodles give this dish a lovely chewy texture!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Sesame Dressing:

  • 9 tablespoon sesame paste
  • 2 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoon sesame oil
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 9 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoon rice vinegar

Noodle & Toppings:

  • 7 oz of Kuan mio noodle (taiwanese thin noodle)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ English cucumber, about ½ cup when chopped
  • 1 carrot, about ½ cup when chopped
  • Few slices of ham, about ½ cup when chopped

Let’s make Taiwanese Cold Sesame Noodles!

  1. For the sauce, mix together the following ingredients. Mix until smooth:

  1. Julienne the cucumber, carrot, and ham. You should have about ½ cup of each when chopped.

  1. For the omelette:
  • Crack 2 eggs into a bowl, add a pinch of salt and pepper, and whisk until well blended
  • Coat your pan in oil and pour the egg mixture in, making sure to create a thin crepe-like layer of egg
  • Once cooked, remove from pan and slice into thin strips (approximately the same size and shape as the julienned vegetables & ham).

  1. Cook 7 oz of Kuan mio noodle in boiling water for about 4 minutes (or as per the instructions on the noodle packaging– just don’t overcook, you want a nice bounce to the noodles!). Stir constantly.
  2. Take the noodles out of the pot and rise with cold water so they stop cooking. Be sure to drain the noodles well. If they sit in water, they will get soggy.

  1. Combine the noodles with the sauce and top with cucumbers, carrots, ham, and eggs. We drizzled a tablespoon of water as we were mixing the noodles with the sauce to ease up the process. Enjoy!
