Cold Sesame Cashew Noodles For Hot Summer Afternoons

Today, we bring you one of our favorite comfort foods: noodles. Noodles are a symbol of unification, longevity or friendship depending on its roots. They are  easily accessible and very versatile. As the season gets warmer, cold food beckons. So we looked to our friend Sharon Rhys, a.k.a SNC Experimental Kitchen, a.k.a @sncxkitchen and found this lovely recipe.

Cold Sesame Cashew Noodles

The sauce for the cold noodles is a little special. We skip the traditional use of peanut butter for sauces like this and substitute JOI Cashew Plant Base. The mild flavors of our Cashew base does not overpower any of the other ingredients, especially the tahini, but allows them to harmonize together for a delicate and delicious afternoon bite.
