Vegetarian Noodle Salad

I am in a rush now and have no time to introduce this salad, other than to say, it turned out very nicely and I recommend it.


Vegetarian Noodle Salad

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/4 cup Mirin
1 teaspoon Thai sweet chili sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 cup cup oil
1/2 pound gluten-free brown rice spaghetti (package directions)
1/4 of an English cucumber, sliced thin
1 red bell pepper (julienned)
1 bunch scallions (sliced)
12 cup salted peanuts (chopped roasted, garnish)

Method:

In a bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, sesame oil, Mirin, chili sauce, sugar, and soy until smooth.

Whisk in the oil. In a large bowl, toss dressing with the pasta, cucumbers, bell pepper and scallions.

The recipe is adapted from Food Network. I went heavier on the Soy Sauce and less on the oil.

Better than other salads like this that I have made.

  6. Love this! I am not a big meat eater in general so I love finding recipes that don't use it in the first place.

    Thanks so much for sharing at Mealtime Monday! I can't wait to see what you link up tonight.
