A noodle salad for the new year

1 min read

The new year has arrived, and we're already running out of ideas for the healthy, delicious meals we literally promised ourselves we'd make...

So here's a ripper to get your going for the 2017 summer, a delicious 'New Year Noodle Salad', or, perhaps a Newdle Year Salad?

No, we'll keep working on that...

Anyway, here's why we love it:

1. Super quick and easy.

2. Packs a full flavour punch.

3. Super healthy - full of veggies, protein, healthy carbs and low in fat.



1/2 soy sauce

1/4 cup brown sugar, tightly packed

1 Tbsp sesame seeds, toasted

2 Tbsp orange juice

1 Tbsp minced ginger

1 Tbsp rice vinegar

2 tsp dark sesame oil

1 tsp minced garlic

1 tsp minced chilli

4 cups cooked soba noodles, hot

3 cups shredded cabbage

2 cups fresh bean sprouts

1 cup shredded carrot

1/2 cup chopped coriander

1 pack firm tofu, drained and cubed



1. Combine the soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, sesame seeds, orange juice, ginger, garlic, chilli and sesame oil in a mug or small bowl and whisk well to combine.

2. In a large bowl combine the noodles and remaining ingredients.

3. Drizzle over the dressing, toss well to coat and serve in bowls.
