Sesame Seed Noodles with Wilted Greens

We harvested a lot of spinach to make a great meal of sesame seed noodles, wilted greens, and egg.

When we harvest our spinach, we pull the entire plant and replace the hole with a couple of seeds. We plan to do this all season long. Our spinach grows on our deck in concrete mixers. This method works the best for us. Our deck gets sun from first daylight until 3:30 or so.

The recipe which inspired our meal is here. However, we did not use whole wheat noodles and our sister also added more ingredients to make the noodles tastier. In addition, we had scrambled eggs with our meal instead of sunny side up since most of us kids don’t like fried eggs. When served, our bowls were heavier on the greens rather than the noodles. But still, don’t you think the dish looks good?

Basically, cook your noodles and add things like sesame seeds (roasted), rice vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, hot pepper flakes, and some oil. Cook your greens in some oil and salt & pepper to taste. Then cook your eggs up the way you like them and arrange the 3 things in your bowl so it looks appetizing.

This is a favorite here currently, and we will most likely be eating this again anytime there’s enough spinach for all of us. For our family, that would mean 7-8 concrete mixers full of spinach staggered at all times.

Hope your garden is coming along nicely if you have one!
