As you can see, the main bulk of the preparation for this vegan Thai salad recipe is with the chopping of the vegetables.
We’d recommend that, because the vegan Thai noodle salad uses raw vegetables, it’s best to use vegetables at their freshest and most flavoursome.
Our vegan noodle salad recipe uses cashew nuts, but you could also use peanuts to add texture and protein.
You can serve the vegan salad with a sprinkle of sesame seeds. If you want to use this salad as a base for your vegan dinner, you can top the vegan Thai noodle salad with baked tofu. We think our maple-glazed tofu goes particularly well with this Thai noodle salad recipe.
A bright and colourful summery salad with lots of different textures and crunch! Eating raw food can be beneficial as some nutrients are lost in cooking. However, not all foods are digestible when raw, so try to maintain a good balance of both.
