Healthy Asian Noodle Salad

There’s a new coffee shop that opened near my home, and I’m a bit in love with it. The two (rather cute) men who own it are super awesome, the space is wicked and the food is crazy delicious. If you’re from or travelling through Vancouver make sure you check out Lost + Found.

Are you wondering what a post about a Healthy Asian Noodle Salad has to do with a new coffee shop? Well you see, I kind of stole  was inspired by this super tasty salad I had there the other day. You should have seen how quickly I ate it. It was a bit ridiculous.

This asian noodle salad keeps in the fridge really well for several days. I actually find it gets better the next day. I tend to like my food on the spicier side so you’ll notice a bit of sriracha and chili flakes in the recipe. Do adjust the amounts if your tongue doesn’t like a little spice :)

Ingredients
  • 1 – 500 gram package of linguini

  • 1 large carrot, cut into matchstick pieces
  • 2 celery stalks, cut on a diagonal
  • 1 handful of cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup peanuts, roasted
  • 1 cup dried show mein noodles
For the sauce:
  • ¼ cup soy sauce

  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes, or to taste

Instructions
  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente. Drain pasta and cool down under cold running water. Set aside.
  2. Mix together all sauce ingredients in a large bowl. Add cooled pasta and toss to coat. Set aside for 10 minutes so the pasta can absorb a little of the sauce.

  5. Enjoy!
