Soba Noodles with Green Beans and Almonds

Perfect green beans seem to be available only for a month or two in the summer. This dish is a nice way to highlight them during that brief window.

Pan-fried Sesame Noodles and Broccoli

The creamy and flavorful sesame sauce absorbs quickly into the noodles, so if you like your noodles especially saucy, you can make a little extra sauce to add when ready to serve. Chinese sesame paste is made from toasted sesame seeds and has a distinctly different flavor from the Middle Eastern sesame tahini.
