Here I show you my light Rice Noodle Salad recipe. The Asian salad gets along completely without animal and gluten. It sounds healthy and tastes wonderful at the same time.
Modern nutrition is important for me. Since I personally have a lot to do with gluten intolerance, the more so.
Many people work 8 to 9 hours a day and beyond in sedentary jobs. The lack of exercise has an effect on calorie consumption and intestinal activity: All in all, we are becoming slower!
But we can do something for ourselves! In addition to sport and exercise, we can also reduce the size of our meals and ensure good digestibility.
Vegetables and rice are not only IDEAL for a diet but for every occasion!
Eating healthy and light and exercising more often will help us in our everyday life and give more life energy.
The preparation of rice noodle salad is quick and easy. I wish you a lot of fun cooking and a good appetite!
1. Asian Rice Noodle Salad, the Preparation
For a great salad of rice noodles, noodles, vegetables and dressing are prepared separately and then brought together on the plate or bowl.
1.1 Rice Noodles
When I have not just cooked or time is short, I like to eat Vietnamese.
Vietnamese rice noodles are offered as flat ribbon noodles “Pho Xao”. They are usually fried or put in the soup. The spaghetti-like “bun” are also used in the soup in this country kitchen.
Rice noodles are also popular in Indonesia, Thailand, China and Japan.
After cooking, rinse rice noodles under clear water!
With the rice noodle preparation I rinse the noodles after cooking under cold water. So they don’t stick together. Then they can be used for frying, in soups or salads.
1.2 Vegetables for Rice Noodles
In order to shine with a great presentation of the salad, we rely on a great harmonious color play of the ingredients.
That’s where a lot of “green” comes into play with my white rice noodles:
- Pak Choi,
- Green asparagus,
- Shitake mushrooms…
If you like, you can vary with the vegetables. Also suitable would be: sugar peas, Chinese cabbage, chard, spinach, spring onions, mini cucumbers, oysters, mushrooms, morels…
The table shows you a few more options for vegetables to rice noodles depending on the season.
|Spring||mushrooms, asparagus, morels, artichokes, green beans, peas, fennel|
|Summer||eggplant, artichoke, green beans, peas, leek, mushrooms, chanterelles, porcini mushrooms, onions, pak choi, spinach, chard|
|Autumn||pumpkin, carrot, cabbage, leek, leek, mushroom, chanterelles, truffles, savoy cabbage, small green cucumbers, oyster mushrooms, herb mushrooms|
|Winter||carrot, cabbage, leek, leek, mushroom, truffle, oyster mushrooms|
Some vegetables you should fry like onions and mushrooms. Other tender vegetables should be boiled or blanched briefly. You can find my detailed description of my preparation in the recipe section below.
We tickle your taste buds sweet-sour and slightly spicy through our light dressing.
I recommend you for your dressing:
- rice vinegar,
- sesame oil,
- rapeseed oil,
- chili flakes,
- salt or soy sauce,

Sesame seeds and some fresh coriander round off our dish.
