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.

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.
