This easy vegan recipe for cold Asian sesame peanut noodles uses regular pasta and SoyBoy Tofu Lin Organic baked tofu for added protein.

Servings: 6-8


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook whole wheat spaghetti according to directions. Drain through a colander in the sink and run cold water over to cool. Toss with 1-2 Tbs. sesame oil to keep from sticking together.
  2. Meanwhile, add 2 tsp. sesame oil to a large, nonstick pan and sauté 9-ounces of baby spinach (in batches if you need to) to wilt. Turn off heat, toss with toasted sesame seeds and allow to cool to room temperature.
  3. Use a large mixing bowl to combine ¼ cup peanut butter, ¼ cup tahini, ¼ cup soy sauce, 2 Tbs. sesame oil, 3 Tbs. rice wine vinegar, 1 generous Tbs. minced peeled fresh ginger, 1 medium minced peeled clove of garlic and garlic chili past to taste and mix to combine.
  4. Add the cooled, cooked spaghetti and gently toss to combine. Add the spinach, cubed tofu and thinly chopped cucumber and gently toss to combine. Adjust seasonings to taste.
  5. Serve right away or keep cold in a tightly sealed container until you’re ready to eat. Serve with more toasted sesame seeds sprinkled over the top.
