Just this weekend I discovered a packet of black sesame seeds which i’ve never used before and then yesterday i spotted this fab recipe on the HomeLife blog -yay, a perfect excuse to use them plus it’s SUCH an easy recipe. I’m not mad about soba noodles, so i’m going to use vermicelli instead.
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes

1. Making dressing
Combine the tahini, vinegar, soy sauce, peanut and sesame oil and sugar in a small bowl. Taste and season with salt and ground white pepper.
2. Cooking noodles
Cook the noodles in a large saucepan of boiling water following packet instructions until tender. Refresh under cold running water. Drain well.
3. Cook snow peas
Place the snow peas in a medium heatproof bowl. Cover with hot water and set aside for 1 minute. Drain well.
