Meatless Monday with Raw Asian Noodle Salad

Hello and welcome (back) to the Miratel blog and thank you for joining us for another Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. The Meatless Monday pledge aims to reduce meat consumption 15% by eliminating it just one day per week to preserve personal and planetary health. Miratel supports this great initiative and includes it as part of its CSR business strategies to spread awareness of the impact of food choices on our environment.

Today we are featuring a Raw Asian Noodle Salad. A raw – or live – vegan diet is based on uncooked plant-based food that is not heated above 118f so the natural enzymes are preserved. If you are even considering giving raw a try, the summer is the best time to do that. Vegetables are in abundance and are at their peak of flavour – especially zucchini which is featured in today’s recipe and comes to us courtesy of Innocent Cooking blog.

Ingredients

  • 1 zucchini, julienned
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced thinly
  • handful of sprouts of some sort (I used the ones typical in Asian stir fries)
  • 1 tsp fresh chopped ginger
  • 1/2 hot chili pepper, minced (or to taste)
  • 1/3 an onion, thinly sliced and marinated in some soy sauce for 5 minutes to soften (in separate bowl)
  • a handful of fresh cilantro, minced
  • (optional) a handful of fresh basil, minced
  • 1-2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 3-4 tbsp soy sauce
  • (optional) a couple of chopped almonds to garnish

Directions
Place your julienned zucchini noodles in a bowl. Chop up all your veg and add to noodles. Add the oil and soy sauce and toss with salad. Let this sit for a couple of minutes and it will soften the noodles and veg. Add in the onions. Next top with fresh herbs. Chop a couple of almonds and sprinkle over the top of the salad to give it some crunch.

This recipe yields 2 portions. Ideally you should use a julienne slicer to cut the zucchini (you should be able to pick one up for under $10.00) but you can also use a mandoline or knife – you just won’t get the exact desired result. Zucchini has a natural starchiness to it so it makes a perfect raw substitute for traditional noodle or pasta dishes.

Our thanks to Innocent Cooking for this great recipe and beautiful photo.

Enjoy!
