Vegan Vietnamese Noodle Salad (gluten-free)




I was inspired to make this salad by Nigella Lawson. She made this noodle salad with prawns but since I didn’t have any, this became vegan! I think it would go really good with tofu actually. There are quite a few ingredients for the dressing but classic Asian dressings are that mix of spice, sweet and umami so it’s worth it!

Eat this salad hot or cold. It will be delicious cold and you can even add some salad greens to it too.

3. In a large sauté pan, add a splash of oil and then add the red bell pepper, and jalapeño to cook a minute or so. Then, pour half the dressing in the pan and cook another minute to reduce sauce a little.

4. Turn the heat off and then top with cilantro and chopped peanuts.

If you want to add tofu, cut in 1” cubes and fry in the pan first in step 3 and then proceed with veggies.
