  • 8 oz ramen noodles, or chinese egg noodles, reserving a few uncooked for garnish
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 TBSP honey
  • 1 TBSP garlic, minced
  • 1 medium red pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped (reserve a few for garnish)
  • 3 cups purple cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, minced


  • Cook the noodles according to package directions. After the noodles are cooked, rinse them with cold water and drain completely, shaking off as much water as possible.
  • Meanwhile, chop the peppers, cabbage and cilantro. Set them aside.
  • In a medium bowl, make the sauce. Whisk the tahini, soy sauce, lime juice, honey and garlic until well blended and smooth.
  • To the sauce in the bowl add the noodles and vegetables and toss to coat. Garnish with reserved green pepper and crunch noodles. Serve immediately. Can be refrigerated, covered, for 1 day.


Note - creamy unsweetened peanut butter can be substituted for the tahini. It will have a peanut flavor but the same consistency.
