Asian Mung Bean Noodle Salad with Ginger Tamari Dressing (VEGAN, GF)

Mung bean noodles are transparent, dehydrated and made from mung bean starch. Best of all – they are gluten free.

This dish is fresh, textural and vibrant with a little chilli kick, topped with some crunch – toasted black sesame. It is also vegan.

Slurp the juicy noodles up with chopsticks!
