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!

salad

1 pack mung bean noodles
1/4 iceburg lettuce
1 yellow thinly sliced pepper
1 thinly sliced lebanese cucumber

Fill a pot with water and bring to the boil. Drop the noodle cakes into the boiling water and cook for 4 minutes. Immediately take them off the heat, drain and run the noodles under cold water. Drain.

Whisk up the dressing ingredients in a small jug and set aside.

Place the noodles and the remaining salad ingredients, into a large bowl and mix through. Toss through the dressing to coat all of your lovely noodles.
