Sesame Noodles using Mizkan Sesame Sauce with Roasted Nuts

In collaboration with Mizkan once again, I actually whipped up a very simple and fuss free Sesame Noodles using Mizkan Sesame sauce with roasted nuts. Using white jade noodles from Taiwan, the sesame sauce is further enhanced with peanut butter, soya sauce, sesame and chili oil. And of course, you are free to use any kind of noodles you wish, and even spaghetti is fine. 

Mizkan sesame sauce with roasted nuts boosts of a rich sesame fragrance that’s creamy, savory and tantalizing. You can enjoy this noodles typically as a warm or cold noodles, though I much preferred the former. Enjoying it with some appetizing sliced cucumbers and tossing the noodles in green onions makes the dish an all good to go.

In fact because I am quite a fan of anything noodles, so am always glad to be finding ways for more tasty noodles sauce recipe. This sesame noodles is pretty nice and with the fact that it can be served for vegans too, makes it very versatile a dish. This particular noodles sauce is rich and creamy and serves as an ideal dish for anyone who’s desiring a quick whip up without too much hassle. You can also served it further with some grilled salmon or chicken as desired.

Chinese Stir Fry with Chicken & Vegetables in Mizkan Sesame Sauce

Very thankful and blessed to be working with Mizkan once again for the 3rd year running ! We have come a long way in collaborating with Mizkan in innovating several recipes with its sesame sauce but we have never gotten tired of it still ! Because that’s just so many dishes that can be paired with this savory and tasty sesame sauce from Japan.

Commonly used as a salad seasoning, Mizkan’s sesame sauce with roasted nuts boosts of a tantalizing and nutty flavor. My previous post here actually detailed a full listing of all the recipes that was attempted with Mizkan’s products. This time, I decide to pursue an easy Chinese stir fry with Chicken and Vegetables in Sesame sauce.

Our home-cooked Chinese stir fry often evolves around oyster sauce, light soya sauce or the least still, salt or chicken powder. That led me to wonder if we can ever attempt something out of the box and that’s how this recipe is borne. A Japanese sesame sauce that’s commonly used in Western salads is now being cooked in a Chinese home-cooked menu. How does that sound ?

Well for once, it’s pretty awesome to me ! Because it made an effortless one plate dish that comprises of healthy vegetables and chicken breast meat. I never used to like chicken breast meat but amazingly, it tastes really succulent in this dish ! I’ve also compiled a quick one-minute video on the cooking of this which is shared on my Instagram here.

Hope you like enjoy this dish just liked how I did ! And I actually finished up my bowl of rice entirely with this dish alone ! Have a great weekend !

Braised Egg Dumplings and Cabbage Hotpot with Mizkan Yose Nabe Soup Base 红烧蛋饺和大白菜锅

Merry Christmas Eve to all ! Am pretty sure many of us are in an awesome holiday mood by now, so nothing beats gathering your loved ones and pals over for some lovely hotpot sessions. Moreover given the really cool weather recently, it makes the festive even more chilled than ever. With that said, how about some extraordinary hotpots with these lovely looking braised egg dumplings that’s cooked on a flavorful Mizkan Yose Nabe soup based packed with long cabbage and some longevity noodles for that extra goodness ?

Mizkan carries a varieties of soup bases which you can find easily from most major supermarkets locally, namely the Yose Nabe, Pork Bone and Soy Sauce Nabe and Sesame and Soya Milk Nabe.

Yose Nabe ~ Light base hotpot soup base with combination of four stocks – bonito fish, kelp, scallop and chicken.

Pork Bone and Soy Sauce Nabe ~ Made by adding vegetable soup and brewed soy sauce to slowly simmered pork bone and chicken soup.

Sesame and Soy Milk Nabe ~ Smooth, rich and mild flavored combination of chicken and kelp soup finished by adding sesame and soymilk.

Now if you have difficulty identifying which is which given the packaging are all in Japanese language, fret not. Here’s a simple way of identification. The black color packaging is the Pork Bone and Soy Sauce. Whilst the other 2 might look identical on the first instance, you can easily differentiate them from the word “豆” on one of them which literally is the Sesame and Soy Milk Nabe. And so the last one will be the Yose Nabe.

And we as Asians enjoy making dumplings on festive especially. However if the usual dumplings seem a tad too monotonous and common for your liking already, you can lift up the spirits by making these braised egg dumplings which is essentially made of an egg crepe wrapped in your desired dumpling fillings and cooking them in Mizkan hotpot soup base packed with long cabbage, noodles or any other ingredients that you fancy.

And if you intend to go for a vegetarian version, you can always replace the minced meat with some shredded cabbage which I think would be equally good too ! So here’s the recipe to share which is pretty simple.
