Notes

Purple cabbage offers gorgeous color to this colorful salad. Please note, however, that it may impart a violet color to the noodles if not consumed at the time of preparation.

Ingredients

For the dressing:

  • 1/3 Cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 Tablespoon toasted or roasted sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • ¼ to ½ Teaspoon cayenne pepper

For the salad:

  • 1 package tofu spaghetti or fettuccine, such as Pasta Zero
  • ½ small purple cabbage or 1/4 regular green cabbage, coarsely chopped
  • 1 large carrot, coarsely shredded
  • 5 scallions, sliced
  • ½ Cup chopped peanuts
  • 1/3 Cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 Teaspoons lime juice

Directions

For the dressing:

In a medium bowl, whisk together the syrup, soy sauce, oil, garlic, ginger, and cayenne pepper.

 

For the salad:

Rinse the tofu pasta for several minutes in a colander, then place in a dry, nonstick skillet over medium heat for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside to cool.

Place the cabbage, carrots, scallions, peanuts, and cilantro in a large bowl. Add the cooled noodles and set aside.

Add the dressing to the salad and toss gently to combine. Drizzle with the lime juice and serve.

Thai Shopping Tip

To find the ingredients you need to cook Southeast Asian cuisine, try to find specialty grocery stores in the Asian neighborhoods in your town.

Thai Cooking Tip

Southeast Asian Cuisine is about the balance of flavors between sweet and sour; hot and mild. When working with Asian chiles, the smaller ones are usually spicier. Handle with caution and care.
