Noodles and Veg Summer Salad


This is the first of our summer recipes. If you are spending holidays at home and have a little more time than usual to cook we'll be posting a recipe a day to inspire you. Feel free to adapt and change ingredients. All our recipes will incorporate at least 3 portions of veg and a balance of protein, carbohydrate and good fat. 

Dressing

Noodles and veg

Method

  1. For the dressing whisk all the ingredients until smooth 
  2. Boil a small amount of water and steam cabbage and carrots for around 4 minutes (until soft). If you don't have a steamer, add 50 ml of water to a pan, add the cabbage and carrots and cook under cover for a few minutes
  3. Sautee the spinach with garlic and ginger 
  4. Separate noodles into two bowls and cover with steamed veg and dressing.
  5. Slice smoked tofu on to each dish and eat with a side of spinach!
