These clean eating raw Asian noodles are a deliciously nutritious side dish or even a light but filling lunch!
As I write this, nearing the end of my culinary program for plant based cooking. It’s been quite the adventure! But the end of the program has become pretty intense. Thankfully, they have us making up a lot of our own recipes now, so I can get two birds with one stone by doing my homework and sharing the recipes here.
This dish comes from a recipe we had to alter. They gave us a recipe and told us to change it into something that came from a different part of the world. A different cuisine. So I opted for something Asian because so many raw foods go well with things like tamari or soy sauce. (Can we say spring rolls??!! Yum!!!)
So I got to work and ended up with this delicious dish. It’s perfect as a side dish to other Asian fare, or you can take it for lunch all on it’s own. It’s quite delicious and filling and definitely gives you lots of flavor to enjoy!

CLEAN EATING RAW ASIAN NOODLES RECIPE:
A delicious side dish or light lunch that actually fills you up!
- 1 large English cucumber
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 2 tbsp. toasted sesame oil
- 2 tbsp. low sodium tamari
- 1/8 tsp. pure liquid stevia
- 2 medium garlic cloves (minced fine)
- 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp. fresh, minced ginger
- 1 cup thinly sliced purple cabbage
- 1/4 cup chopped peanuts (or cashews)
- 1/4 cup sliced green onions
Clean and trip your cucumber. You can peel it if you wish, but I didn't find it to be necessary.
Cut the cumber in half, and then cut into long slices. Stack the slices up and cut them lengthwise into noodles slightly wider then fettuccini noodles. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix together the oil, tamarind, stevia, garlic, vinegar and ginger. Whisk to combine.
Add the cucumber noodles to the sauce and allow to marinate for about 5 minutes.
Toss in the remaining ingredients and serve.
Note that you will not use all of the sauce/dressing. Reserve what you have left over in the fridge for another batch of this or something different all together. It's a delicious sauce!
