- 1 pound angel hair pasta
- ¾ cup vegetable oil
- 2 ½ tablespoons sesame oil
- 3 tablespoons ground coriander
- ¾ cup soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon chili oil
- 1 head broccoli, cut into florets
- 4 green onions, thinly sliced
- 1½ cup chopped cashews
- 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
Bring a large pot of water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the noodles and cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, about 6 minutes. Drain the noodles and set aside in a large serving bowl.
Heat the vegetable and sesame oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add a single cashew to the oil mixture. When small bubbles form around the cashew, the oil is hot enough. Remove the cashew from the hot oil and remove the saucepan from the heat.
Stir the coriander and soy sauce into the oil. Stand back as you do this because the mixture will crackle and sizzle.
When it stops sizzling, stir in the chili oil. Pour the oil mixture over the noodles and toss to coat the noodles evenly.
Add the broccoli and green onions and continue to toss until all the ingredients are combined.
Refrigerate until ready to serve then top with the cashews and sesame seeds.
