  2. Looks delicious, I love making homemade take out! Do you know what a good substitute for sesame oil is? We have food allergies, thanks!

  3. Kyle Murray says:

    Peanut oil or grapeseed oil would work just fine. Both light and don’t affect the overall flavor of the dish.

  4. What a delightfully simple recipe for noodle lovers, which we all are!
