Cold Sesame Noodles with Broccoli and Kale

Cold Sesame Noodles with Broccoli and Kale

Instead of deep-frying the broccoli in this sesame noodles recipe, we used a high-heat roasting method.


  • 1 large head of broccoli, cut into large florets with some stalk attached
  • 2 garlic cloves, 1 finely grated, 1 thinly sliced, divided
  • 1½ teaspoons sambal oelek
  • 1 tablespoon plus ½ cup sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar, divided
  • ¾ cup vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more
  • 3 scallions, green parts only, thinly sliced, plus more for serving
  • 1 3-inch piece ginger, peeled, cut into 1-inch matchsticks
  • 4 cups chopped Tuscan kale leaves
  • 2 10-ounce packages fresh ramen noodles or two 3-ounce packages dried
  • Torn mint leaves and toasted sesame seeds (for serving)

Recipe Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 450°. Toss broccoli with grated garlic, sambal oelek, 1 Tbsp. vinegar, and ¼ cup oil on a rimmed baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. Roast, tossing occasionally, until tender and browned in spots, 20–25 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, whisk scallions, ginger, sliced garlic, 1 tsp. salt, ¼ tsp. pepper, and remaining ½ cup vinegar and ½ cup oil in a large bowl. Add kale; toss to coat. Let sit at room temperature at least 15 minutes and up to 1 hour.

  • Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain; rinse under cold water. Add noodles and warm broccoli to kale and toss to coat. Divide among bowls and top with mint, sesame seeds, and more scallions.

If you like a tart and vinegar flavor you’ll like this recipe. It holds up as left overs the next day too. For the dressing, I add some of it to the kale first but reserve some for on top after adding the noodles. That way I can add more or less of the dressing to taste based on if I threw in extra broccoli or didn’t have as big a head of kale.FierybellySeattle05/23/20this is good but it needs waaaay less oil than the recipe calls for ... you could do as little as two tablespoons on just the broccoli. but otherwise the flavour is great. mint on top is a little odd with the sherry vinegar
