Sesame noodle bowl with chopsticks.

Sometimes you just need to really look forward to your lunch, and sometimes = always.

Will you look forward to:

  • silky smooth, lusciously creamy sesame sauce that you can just shake up in a jar real quick
  • fork-twirly noodles with just the right amount of stick to hang onto that sauce
  • salted edamame
  • crispy cucumber bits
  • juicy browned chicken or tofu or whatever protein you love – like, I don’t know, I’m having visions of a soft boiled egg?

YOU TELL ME.

Sesame noodle bowl in meal prep containers.

This recipe is incredibly easy, which, as you know, is kind of the only way I do meal prep. E-A-S-Y.

The sauce can shake up in a jar and the noodles can cook in 2 minutes (serious).

And just like that, you have sesame noodles.

And said sesame noodles are, in fact, the base of the sesame noodle bowls, so basically you’re done. Now it’s just up to you how extra you want to get with your bowl-ing.

Ingredients for sesame noodle bowls.

I went medium effort on my sesame noodle bowls with cucumbers, edamame, sesame-ish chicken, and a sprinkling of sesame seeds, and it was part noodles, part salad, part health bomb, and I loved it.

You can debate me on hot vs. cold all day – I will let you win either way because both are amazing.

Guys, this is a desk lunch to keep you counting the hours till lunch BUT NOT LIKE I DO THAT?! Happy prepped lunches to you!

15 Minute Meal Prep: Sesame Noodle Bowls


  • Author: Lindsay
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 bowls

Description

Meal Prep Sesame Noodle Bowls! Fork-twirly noodles, an easy creamy sesame sauce, perfect browned chicken, and all the veg. YUM.


Ingredients

Sesame Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup sesame paste (or tahini)
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • Sriracha and sugar to taste

Bowls:

  • 6-8 ounces stir fry noodles, Chinese egg noodles, or linguine in a pinch
  • 2 cups edamame, cooked
  • 2 cucumbers, diced
  • 1 lb. chicken breast, cooked and diced (optional: see notes)
  • Sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Sauce: Whisk all sauce ingredients together until smooth (or you can run it through the food processor, or shake it up in a jar).
  2. Noodles: Cook noodles a few minutes LESS than package instructions. If your noodles seem very sticky, rinse them in cold water. Toss noodles with about half of the sesame sauce.
  3. Bowls: Divide noodles, edamame, cucumber, and chicken into containers. Drizzle with a little extra sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Voila! Store in the fridge for 3-4 days. Eat hot or cold. Take a shot for the ‘gram cause this is your moment.

Notes

If you love sauce: Make a 1.5x batch. Especially if you are going to use some on the chicken. Or want some leftover in your fridge or freezer.

Ideal method for cooking the chicken: Cut a pound of chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces, toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Done. If you like a little browning on your chicken (like what’s pictured here), once it’s baked, just pop it in a skillet with some extra sesame sauce and let it get nice and roasty-browned on the outside!

Noodles: The noodles I used said “Oriental Style Noodles – Product of Japan” on the package, but a lot of the videos I watched for sesame noodles recommended Chinese egg noodles. Whatever noodles you use, I’d recommend cooking for slightly less than what is directed on the package.

Soy sauce: A lot of recipes I saw called for dark soy sauce! I liked using dark soy sauce and probably would do that again, but I also found that the sauce still tasted really good with regular or low sodium soy sauce. In my opinion, either one can work.

Hot / cold: If you do want to eat these sesame noodles hot, I would recommend storing the cucumber separately and adding it after you heat it up.

Other vegetables / proteins: Cucumbers are traditional with sesame noodles, but I think just about any vegetables (and/or protein) would be great. Carrots. Bell peppers. Broccoli. Green onions. Shrimp. Salmon. Tofu. Tempeh. Peanuts.

A free 7-day flexible weight loss meal plan including breakfast, lunch and dinner and a shopping list. All recipes include calories and Weight Watchers Freestyle™ SmartPoints®.

A free 7-day flexible weight loss meal plan including breakfast, lunch and dinner and a shopping list. All recipes include calories and Weight Watchers Freestyle™ SmartPoints®.

Fish Florentine has been such a huge hit, I added it back on this weeks meal plan!

If you’re new to my meal plans, I’ve been sharing these free, 7-day flexible healthy meal plans (you can see my previous meal plans here) that are meant as a guide, with plenty of wiggle room for you to add more food, coffee, beverages, fruits, snacks, dessert, wine, etc or swap recipes out for meals you prefer, you can search for recipes by course in the index. You should aim for around 1500 calories* per day.

There’s also a precise, organized grocery list that will make grocery shopping so much easier and much less stressful. Save you money and time. You’ll dine out less often, waste less food and you’ll have everything you need on hand to help keep you on track.

Lastly, if you’re on Facebook join my Skinnytaste Facebook Community where everyone’s sharing photos of recipes they are making, you can join here. I’m loving all the ideas everyone’s sharing!

Also, if you don’t have the Skinnytaste Meal Planner, now would be a great time to get one to get organized for 2019! There was a print error last year, but it’s perfect now! You can order it here!

THE DETAILS:

Breakfast and lunch Monday-Friday, are designed to serve 1 while dinners and all meals on Saturday and Sunday are designed to serve a family of 4. Some recipes make enough leftovers for two nights or lunch the next day. While we truly believe there is no one size fits all meal plan, we did our best to come up with something that appeals to a wide range of individuals. Everything is Weight Watchers friendly, I included the updated Weight Watcher Freestyle Points for your convenience, feel free to swap out any recipes you wish or just use this for inspiration!

The grocery list is comprehensive and includes everything you need to make all meals on the plan. I’ve even included brand recommendations of products I love and use often. Cross check your cabinets because many condiments you’ll notice I use often, so you may already have a lot of them.

And last, but certainly not least, this meal plan is flexible and realistic. There’s plenty of wiggle room for cocktails, healthy snacks, dessert and dinner out. And if necessary, you can move some things around to make it work with your schedule. Please let me know if you’re using these plans, this will help me decide if I should continue sharing them!

A free 7-day flexible weight loss meal plan including breakfast, lunch and dinner and a shopping list. All recipes include calories and Weight Watchers Freestyle™ SmartPoints®.

If you’re new to my meal plans, I’ve been sharing these free, 7-day flexible healthy meal plans (you can see my previous meal plans here) that are meant as a guide, with plenty of wiggle room for you to add more food, coffee, beverages, fruits, snacks, dessert, wine, etc or swap recipes out for meals you prefer, you can search for recipes by course in the index. You should aim for around 1500 calories* per day.

There’s also a precise, organized grocery list that will make grocery shopping so much easier and much less stressful. Save you money and time. You’ll dine out less often, waste less food and you’ll have everything you need on hand to help keep you on track.

Lastly, if you’re on Facebook join my Skinnytaste Facebook Community where everyone’s sharing photos of recipes they are making, you can join here. I’m loving all the ideas everyone’s sharing!

Also, if you don’t have the Skinnytaste Meal Planner, now would be a great time to get one to get organized for 2019! There was a print error last year, but it’s perfect now! You can order it here!

THE DETAILS:

Breakfast and lunch Monday-Friday, are designed to serve 1 while dinners and all meals on Saturday and Sunday are designed to serve a family of 4. Some recipes make enough leftovers for two nights or lunch the next day. While we truly believe there is no one size fits all meal plan, we did our best to come up with something that appeals to a wide range of individuals. Everything is Weight Watchers friendly, I included the updated Weight Watcher Freestyle Points for your convenience, feel free to swap out any recipes you wish or just use this for inspiration!

The grocery list is comprehensive and includes everything you need to make all meals on the plan. I’ve even included brand recommendations of products I love and use often. Cross check your cabinets because many condiments you’ll notice I use often, so you may already have a lot of them.

And last, but certainly not least, this meal plan is flexible and realistic. There’s plenty of wiggle room for cocktails, healthy snacks, dessert and dinner out. And if necessary, you can move some things around to make it work with your schedule. Please let me know if you’re using these plans, this will help me decide if I should continue sharing them!
