Understated, would pair well with many more dominant dishes (we had this with Rosemary Shrimp on the grill). Kids enjoyed the recipe and fought over the leftovers (next time I will double for lunches). Good make-ahead dish. Unlike the last reviewer, I thought the spring onion quantity just right and made exactly as written. I cooked the oil a little too long so strained out the solids.
Spicy Orange Noodles
This simple side dish highlights two fad-free nutrition concepts: The buckwheat adds whole-grain nutrients to your meal with its bountiful fiber and phytonutrients, while a prudent amount of spicy infused oil keeps added fat (and calories) at a minimum. Neutral-flavored canola oil smoothes out nutty sesame oil; both plant-based oils have healthful unsaturated fats. Use leftover oil in stir-fries or as part of an Asian-inspired salad dressing.
