Tasty Tuesday: Recipe - Cold Lemongrass Noodle Salad

 

 

It's "Tasty Tuesday", where every week we bring you new, fresh, local, healthy recipes and food tips. Find out what is in season, and what will keep you fuelled during and after your work outs!

 

I accidentally got pad thai noodles when I was trying to buy rice noodles, so I decided to make something with them, and oh boy, was it a tasty success!

I'm a wuss when it comes to spice, so you'll have to adjust if you want more or less heat in this, but there are so many flavours in this Thai-inspired dish, you might not even want it!

 

Make Your Meal Even Healthier Tip:

 

This is vegan and is filled with great veggies, but feel free to add more - Or maybe something sweet? Play around with it, and make sure you have leftovers as this dish was even better after sitting overnight!

Serves 2

 

INGREDIENTS:

 

For the Salad:

- package of pad-thai like noodles (enough for 2 people)

- 1 large carrot, thinly peeled

- half an english cucumber, thinly sliced

- 1/2 cup shredded red cabbage

- 1 tsp chopped cilantro or basil (more for garnish)

- crushed peanuts for topping

 

For the Dressing:

- 1/2 cup coconut milk

- 1 tbsp finely chopped lemongrass

- 1 tbsp sesame oil

- 1 tbsp peanut butter (or other nut butter)

- 1 tbsp rice vinegar

- 1 tbsp ginger (finely grated)

- 1 small shallot, finely diced

- 1/4 tsp salt (more to taste)

- 1/2 red chilli (optional, for spice)

- 1 tbsp maple syrup (or honey, or date syrup)

- spritz of lime juice

  

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

 

In a high powered blender, add the ingredients for the dressing and blend until smooth, and set aside while you assemble the salad.

 

Boil water and cook the noodles to the package directions, and when finished, drain and run under cold water.

 

Add the noodles, vegetables (everything except the peanuts), and dressing (start with a small amount) to a bowl and mix together. Add more dressing as needed, storing the rest in a sealed container in the fridge.

 

Let stand in fridge until cold (if you can wait!), or enjoy the next day, adding more sauce if needed - either way top with crushed peanuts and garnish with cilantro or basil.

After exactly four years and three hundred blog posts, I'm calling time on Eat Noodles Love Noodles. Giving up blogging hasn't been an easy decision to make. After all, it's a hobby that's given me great joy, and one through which I've met some great friends, online and off, along the way. All things considered, it's a leisure activity that is given me extraordinary happiness, and one through which I've met some incredible companions, on the web and off, en route. Huge on account of all of you, particularly to those of you who took the inconvenience to remark on the blog en route. I've made a sort of a rebound on my other blog. The Chinese effect on how Bang kokians eat isn't simply constrained to Chinatown. This is most apparent at breakfast time making a decision by the zeal at which local people were tucking into dishes of congee and soup noodles. sooooo yummy! made this today and its gone! I’m working cheap essay writing service I really like this type of post I utilized pack noodles and it just took around 15 minutes, Naturally I began the day with the last mentioned, which accompanied heaps of treats including fish balls, angle cake, pork cuts, minced pork, some veg and browned wanton skin. I would in general go for the expansive ho fun rice noodles yet most slows down offer a selection of noodles. The soup is frequently very gentle (perfect for breakfast) yet there are heaps of sauces as an afterthought on the off chance that you need to pimp your bowl up. The recipe calls for serving in bowls, but my kids like more noodles and less broth, so I just added a whole big bag of noodles, which made it thicker than the recipe actually called for, so we served them on plates with some veggies. You do your own thing and it will all be good. Thank you so much….
