Set up a food processor and add the
Fresh Basil (3 cups)
Garlic (3 cloves)
, est and juice of the
Fresh Chives (3/4 cup)
Fresh Dill (1 Tbsp)
Dry Roasted Peanuts (1/2 cup)
Sesame Oil (1 Tbsp)
Soy Sauce (1/2 tsp)
Puree it all together thoroughly. Then let it run while you slowly pour in the
Olive Oil (1/2 cup)
until it becomes a thick, lovely sauce. Set it aside.
Flat Rice Noodles (1 lb)
for about 3-4 minutes, just until tender. Refer to the package directions for best results. Drain them and rinse them thoroughly in cold water to rinse off the excess starch. That way they don't get gummy.
Transfer the noodles to a very large bowl and stir in the pesto sauce in stages. That way it gets incorporated more easily.
Serve immediately, or store in a sealed container and enjoy the leftovers cold! Sprinkle
Toasted White Sesame Seeds (to taste)
on top when you serve for some texture.
