Gluten Free Cold Asian Noodle Salad Recipe

Asian food is oftentimes my go-to for quick and easy meals. I always have the ingredients to make an Asian sauce on hand in my pantry or fridge and you can basically throw any colorful mix of vegetables into a pan and stir fry it with the sauce or you can cut them up small and use them raw. Add a starch like rice or noodles and a protein like meat, beans, or nuts, and you’ve got a complete meal in no time. This Gluten Free Cold Asian Noodle Salad recipe is a great example.

I start with cooked spaghetti as my starch, add in an assortment of fresh, raw vegetables, and mix it all up with a sauce that contains protein (Sunbutter). With 7 grams of protein per 2 tablespoons, Sunbutter (sunflower seed butter) allows the dish to be nut free and vegetarian, yet still have adequate protein.

This dish has such delicious flavor and can be made ahead for convenience – and that’s a win-win in my book!

When you need a go-to meal, what kinds of foods do you turn to?
