I prepared this cheerful dish a few weeks back for the family, the toddler enjoyed it quite a bit. The color is what I liked, it felt very inviting.


Carrot and Peanut Noodles

  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and sliced

  • Raw sesame seed for topping


Heat a large skillet over medium. Add oil, onion and carrots, sauté for a few minutes, add in garlic and ginger, cover tightly and cook for 15 minutes, shaking pan periodically and stirring. Take off heat and let cool for a few minutes.
