This Vegan Tofu Rice Noodle Salad is:
- easy to make
- super healthy
- full of flavour!
This Vegan Tofu Rice Noodle Salad is absolutely perfect for those hot summer days where you want to do minimal cooking, but want to eat a nutritious and satisfying dinner. Or, as it’s best served cold, it’s also great for packed lunches!
It’s one of those super easy no-recipe recipes which you can easily customise depending on what you happen to have on hand.
In terms of veggies, I went for a combination of different flavours and textures:
- candy-sweet red peppers
- fiery pickled ginger
- crunchy carrots
- peppery cress
- refreshing raw zucchini
- spicy radishes
- aromatic basil
- juicy sugar-snap peas
But you can really use this as an excuse to clear out your fridge!
The rainbow of crunchy raw vegetables pairs beautifully with the creamy cubes of silky tofu and perfectly chewy rice noodles to create an amazingly refreshing and satisfying salad.
As with most salads, the very best part of this dish is the dressing: it’s a great balance of salty, sweet, sour and slightly spicy flavours, and is sure to make any salad highly addictive!
