I think it was something like 1tbsp each of nooch, soy sauce, tahini, miso, a clove of garlic, ummm. I'm missing something.

Copied from the old boards:

i make a sauce for pasta that's equal parts:
tahini
miso
soy sauce
olive oil
nooch or mustard
lemon juice or vinegar
and a few cloves of garlic.
eta: if i have mirin i sometimes throw that in, too.

mix it all up and add to hot pasta. it usually winds up being about 2 T. of each item. sometimes i add some spinach or something.

i usually use the sweet white [miso], but any kind will work.

it's really good with any kind of green veggie thrown in (like spinach, arugula, brocolli, scallions - that kind of stuff).

eta: when i say 2 T. of each, i don't measure. i get out my big soup spoon which i use interchageably with a tablespoon in non-baking recipes and use heaping tablespoons of everything.

and a quick trick. since the sauce is so easy to make, i boil the pasta, drain it, put the pot back on the warm stove, make the sauce in there, then add the hot pasta back to it. the heat of the pan and the pasta helps melt down the tahini and miso so that it works through the pasta better.

I tried Esme Sauce for the first time just before the old ppk shut down. It's the best! I also use both nooch and mustard. I love making a large batch of it and dipping roasted Brussels sprouts in it.

This tastes AMAZING with umeboshi vinegar. I left out the soy sauce and thinned it with water. So good.

I really have to try this! I would probably throw in some Sriracha, because, well, I throw some Sriracha into almost everything.

I am totally making this tonight. I'm thinking it might be good on some shell shaped pasta with some dice tomatoes on top.

There is a strong divide in my household over Esme's Sauce. I loooove it and my partner haaaates it. The first time I made it he stared in horror as I mixed everything together and declared it the grossest thing I've ever made. He's crazy. He makes his own dinner when I get a hankering for salty noochy goodness.

The one time I made this I used lemon juice from a plastic bottle. My bad. I need to do it right next time.

Plastic bottle lemon is evil. It is one of the few things in the kitchen that My Favorite Human and I disagree on.

I made the sauce tonight! Had it on some pasta that the kids were eating, topped it with some crappy dried parsley from the cabinet - it was a taste sensation!
Kind of like the sauce we make for kale, but the mustard and nooch make it kind of tangy/savory in a cheezy way.

I made this for the first time tonight. I had to make dinner for the 4 vegan students (chatter, Jacques, TheAmazonProject and another student) who are practicing their hearts out in the school's production of Romeo and Juliet. I haven't heard the verdict yet as to whether they liked it or not. I made rotini pasts, mixed in the sauce and then put steamed broccoli on top.
