Easy Dinner Recipes for Vegetarian Pastas


Boiling Noodles

Asian Noodles with Cucumbers

Recently, I took this dish to a potluck dinner where it was very popular. You'll love the crunchiness and sweetness that delights your tastebuds. This will quickly become one of your best vegetarian recipes.

6-oz. noodles, angel hair, cooked and drained (Gluten Free: use 16-oz. shirataki noodles or rice noodles)

6 tablespoons rice vinegar

1 tablespoon rice syrup (or agave, maple syrup, honey)

1 teaspoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon garlic salt

1-2 cucumbers, peeled, chopped

2 green onions, whites, sliced

2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Prepare dressing by mixing rice vinegar, sesame oil, rice syrup, soy sauce, garlic salt, and 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds. Drain noodles, put into a bowl, and stir in dressing.

Put noodle mixture in refrigerator to marinate for one hour. Mix remaining ingredients together except 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds. Sprinkle remaining sesame seeds on top to serve. Serve cold. Serves 3

1 cup salad dressing that includes sun dried tomatoes, vinegar, oil, and garlic (Naturally Fresh)

½ cup walnuts, broken
