Vegan Satay Noodle Salad

Salads are often overlooked as a boring meal, but when they look like this who can say says salads are boring? Here is my recipe for my vegan satay noodle salad, topped with crispy tofu and a delicious satay-style sauce.

Vegan Satay Noodle Salad

This noodle salad was probably one of the first recipes I ever created, I don't know why it has taken me so long to share it! I have been eating this dish for years and it became a staple during my time at university because it was such a quick meal to make and so delicious too.

This salad bowl only takes 20 minutes to make so there is no excuse not to have a healthy meal. Packed full of vegetables, protein, and healthy fats from the peanut butter, this salad has it all! This is also a great dish to meal prep, I often take some with me for a delicious work lunch or to enjoy after a long day.

  • Any left-overs can be stored in a sealed container for up to 3 days.

  • This recipe works great with any variety of noodles, I tend to use rice noodles or udon noodles.

  • If you don't have a spiraliser, you can alternatively finely chop the carrot and courgette.
