SESAME NOODLES WITH BROCCOLI AND ALMONDS #vegetarian #dinner #lunch #broccoli #noodles

I woke up promptly in the first part of the day feeling appreciative thus dang adored after an excellent birthday evening with the majority of my preferred individuals the prior night — processing around the kitchen getting a charge out of a fantastic smorgasbord of chips and salsa, keeping the refills going ahead everybody's glasses with crisp margaritas, lounging around the table talking and snickering and getting a charge out of these superb individuals until late at night. It was my sort of a birthday, despite everything i'm grinning about it!

At that point, stunningly better, I ventured outside toward the beginning of the day to one of those dazzling spring days that you long for throughout the entire winter. The air was consummately warm and blustery, the sun was splendid and sparkling throughout the day, and it felt like blossoms were blooming wherever you turned. I quickly tossed open the windows and left them open, and Henry reliably scootched his snoozes over the floors following the sunbeams throughout the day.

Obviously, it was too dazzling multi day to remain inside. So I sent a yell out to my neighbors checking whether individuals needed to hang out by the outdoor tables out back after work. What's more, even with small arranging, we had a group. So fun!! Everybody was practically jazzed to be back outside after a winter of neighbor-nighting inside, and remained outside going around chicken wings and (my extra!) chips and salsas and treats and brew until long after the sun had set. We even had a bunch of new neighbors appear, which dependably makes me so glad to see our little custom living on.

  • 1 pound (16 oz.) uncooked linguine (or any noodles, such as rice noodles, soba noodles, lo mein noodles, etc.)
  • 1 tablespoon peanut or vegetable oil
  • 3-4 cups chopped broccoli florets (about 1 medium head of broccoli)
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly-sliced
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped Blue Diamond Almonds (I used the Wasabi and Soy Sauce variety)
  • 1 batch Sesame-Soy Vinaigrette (see below)
  • optional garnishes: thinly-sliced green onions, toasted sesame seeds, coarsely-ground black pepper, crushed red pepper flakes


  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly-cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon sriracha or hot chili oil



  1. Cook noodles al dente in a large stockpot of salted water according to package instructions.  Drain, and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, as the pasta is cooking, heat oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat.  Add the broccoli florets and season with a few pinches of salt and pepper.  Saute, stirring once a minute or so, for 4-5 minutes until it is slightly charred around the edges and cooked through.  Stir in the garlic and continue sauteing for 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently, until the garlic is cooked and fragrant.  Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. When the pasta is drained, return it to the large stockpot, and stir in the cooked broccoli and garlic, almonds, and sauce until everything is evenly combined.
  4. Serve immediately, topped with your desired garnishes.  Or refrigerate the noodles in a sealed container for up to 3 days.  (This dish is also awesome when served chilled.)
