We love dishes like this in our house! The flavors are amazing and the colors brilliant. It's also very quick and easy to throw together, and healthy to boot. I have made this about 4 times over the past few months and there has never been enough leftovers to get a decent picture. So, I made sure this time to take photos BEFORE we ate it all.
We have dairy issues in our house so the fact that this dish has no cheese or milk is wonderful. This is a great one dish meal because you've got your grains and veggies all together. When we have unsalted peanuts, we throw them on top to make it a little more "meaty."
1/2 lb noodles (spaghetti, whole wheat, rice, etc.)
1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp. sesame oil
1 Tbsp canola oil
1 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
2-3 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 red pepper, sliced thin
1/4 head cabbage (purple or green), sliced thin
2 whole Carrots, cut into matchsticks
1 1/2 cups thawed frozen peas
1/2 cup sesame seeds
Cook noodles according to directions. Drain, rinse under cold water. Prepare vegetables and put them in a large salad bowl. Add sesame seeds and noodles.
To make dressing, whisk together soy sauce, sesame oil, canola oil, vinegar and crushed red pepper. Pour over noodles and veggies and toss well to coat.
