picture of Sesame Noodle Salad

These vegan sesame noodles were inspired by a cold packed Asian sesame noodle salad that I once got at a little shop in New York for my flight home, and I liked it so much I took a picture of the label with the ingredients to experiment with them at home until I had the noodle salad we liked best. I also added smoked tofu and red cabbage to my recipe.

The final result turned out amazing and has become my number one enjoy warm or cold easy to transport crowd-pleaser. I’ll bring it whenever I’m invited somewhere, like a picknick or party buffet. Or just as a work lunch.
