A cold Chinese Style Noodle Salad is really going to hit the spot today. Gluten free rice noodles are going to be tossed together with imitation crab, tinned button mushrooms, spring onions and dressed in a delicious and nutty Salad dressing. Topped with some bean sprouts for crunch! Hi everyone I’m KA and today is all about rice noodles that are easy to prepare and gluten free. I just prepared a Thai Inspired Crab noodle Salad and my take on the Kani Salad which is a Japanese Crab salad. Both of those recipes will be at the end of this video and in the description. Because this recipe is so easy and there’s 0 cooking involved, I’m hoping that my 18 year old son will take a break from eating fast food to prepare this for himself at his residence in University.
I’m going to prepare my noodles by immersing them in hot water, draining them, running cold water on them and draining them again. In a smaller bowl, let’s mix 3 tbsps of light soya with 3 tsps of Vinegar with 3 tbsps of Sesame oil. Sesame oil gives a wonderful nutty flavour to the dressing. If this isn’t enough, add 1 tsp of sesame seeds, 1 tsps while pepper and 1/2 tbsp of chilli flakes. Slice the imitation crab in discs and the mushrooms in halves or quarters – however you prefer. Also slice 2 spring onions, bulbs and leaves. Add everything to the rice noodles and toss well to coat. Enjoy this salad cold and leftovers make a great lunch. This is also a great pot luck addition!
