There’s no better way to beat the summer heat than indulge in some delicious cold meals. Audrey is going to share some fab recipes with you to make in the comfort of your own home!
I always turn to my favorite summer dish–the cold sesame peanut noodles — when I want to chill out when dining in.
Here, I share the recipe with you! We’re even making these recipe cards so you can easily transfer the recipe (picture and all!) to friends and family. Thoughtful, huh?
Nina Simond‘s Cold Sesame Peanut Noodle
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
2 tbsp. smooth peanut butter
1 1/2 tsp tomato paste
1 tsp sugar
1/3 cup water
1 tsp. safflower or corn oil
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp crushed red pepper
Mix the first 5 ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
Heat a small, heavy saucepan over high heat, add the oil and heat until hot (about 20 seconds). Then add the garlic and pepper and heat until fragrant (5 seconds or so). Then add the mixture and cook until warmed through, about 3-4 minutes.

I like my Thai food greasy, dirty and cheap. (But not my date.) That’s just how authentic Thai food should be. After all, in Thailand, platanas are served with a side of flies (not fries) and hot tom yum soup come in charred metal bowls. Greasy, dirty and cheap but totally mouth-wateringly delicious.
So when I was invited to try a classy little Thai eatery in the middle of the bustling Sunset Boulevard, I was hesitant. Is the food actually going to be… light? Clean? Costly?
Turns out Night + Market at Talesai is a happy medium.
