  • 1 (16 ounce) package spaghetti

  • ¼ cup sesame seeds

  • ¼ cup tamari

  • ¼ cup sesame oil

  • 2 ½ tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons sucanat

  • ¼ teaspoon chili paste

  • ¼ cup chopped green onions


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes.

  2. While the pasta is cooking, heat sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat until golden brown and fragrant, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and immediately transfer to a plate to cool.

  3. Whisk tamari, sesame oil, balsamic vinegar, sucanat, and chili paste together in a bowl.

  4. Drain pasta and transfer to a large bowl. Add dressing, sesame seeds, and green onions. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight before serving.

Cook's Note:

You can use brown sugar for sucanat, if preferred.
