Raw "Peanut" Noodles

For the Dressing:

  • 1" ginger
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons roasted sesame oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup of white miso
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons high quality shoyu or soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup water
Blend all of the ingrediants together in a food processor or high speed blender until creamy.

For the Noodles:

  • 2 small zucchinis  sliced with a veggie pealer
  • 1/2 red pepper, sliced into matchsticks 
  • 1/2 carrot sliced into matchsticks
  • 1/2 cucumber grated or pealed into long strips 
  • Scallions of green onions for garnish
To actually assemble the dish take all of the veggies and toss together in 1/4 cup of the dressing, adding more if necessary.  Sprinkling with the scallions or green onions as garnish.

I also personally really like adding mug beans to this recipe.
