Simple, yet delicious recipe for vegan rice noodle salad with a scrumptious peanut dressing - super quick and easy to prepare. Beware: addictive! 😉


  • 50g rice noodles
  • 1/4 cucumber
  • 2 spring onions
  • 30g edamame beans

For the peanut dressing:

  • 1 tsp (heaped) natural smooth peanut butter (I used Meridian)
  • 1/4 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp tamari soy sauce
  • a spritz of sriracha (optional)
  • 3 tsp water


  1. Cook the rice noodles according to packaging instructions. Rinse with cold water and drain.
  2. Wash and cut the quarter of a cucumber into bite size chunks.
  3. Chop up the 2 spring onions into small rings, removing the ends.
  4. Prepare the sauce by adding the peanut butter, ginger powder, garlic powder, apple cider vinegar, tamari soy sauce, sriracha and water to a small bowl. Using a fork or whisk gently stir until the peanut butter has broken down and combined into a smooth dressing with the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Combine everything in a large mixing bowl and either serve immediately or place in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days.


  • This recipe is naturally gluten free, just ensure to use a gluten free soy sauce.
  • You can also eat this dish heated up, simply swap out the cucumber for courgette and gently steam it above your rice noodles during the preparation process.
