Garlic sesame noodles coated in an earthy sweet and salty sauce are comforting and simple to make. This tasty dish is ready in 15 minutes!
If you love Asian food as much as I do you will love garlic sesame noodles. They make a perfect side along with crispy Cream Cheese Rangoons. While these noodles are a great stand alone meal, you can also pair them with protein packed dishes such as Asian honey garlic chicken or Beef and broccoli.
Better than takeout!
Hi there, my name is Bee and I blog at Rasa Malaysia, the number 1 food blog specializes in Asian cooking. On a weekly basis, we eat noodles (mostly spaghetti) about two or three times a week for dinner. My 4-year old boy’s favorite food is noodles and spaghetti. So I have been switching up and make different variations of noodles for him.
Here is the garlic sesame noodle that we absolutely love as a family. This garlic sesame noodle is flavored with soy sauce, oyster sauce, garlic, and sesame oil. It’s the Asian-flavor spaghetti noodle dish that is both appetizing and delicious.
This recipe is so easy, fuss-free, and you don’t even need to fire up a skillet to cook. All you have to do is cook the noodles or spaghetti, make the sauce, and then toss them together. Easy peasy and no major cleaning and wiping of the stove top and kitchen counter. You can also make it with Asian noodles, for example: egg noodles, yaki soba noodles, or fresh Asian noodles. The taste is savory and aromatic, from the garlic, sesame oil and sesame seeds. It’s great on its own or with chicken, shrimp, with a healthy serving of vegetables.

Tips + Storing Info
When a measurement is followed by “scant” it means that you don’t pack the measuring cup, but rather the amount is slightly below the written amount. So when measuring out the sugar don’t pack the measuring spoons, its okay to be a little bit under.
Oyster sauce is available in supermarkets and is actually super accessible. With the oyster sauce, this dish is not vegan. If you decided to remove that part of the recipe then you should be in the clear.
STORE in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week.
