Sesame Rice Noodle Salad
This light noodle dish comes together very quickly and is packed with flavour! It’s easy to make ahead and improves as it chills (keeps for 3 days in the fridge). By adding black beans, this dish meets the Canada’s Food Guide recommendation to include more plant-based proteins and it’s a great way to use up veggies you have on hand. Be sure to dice, slice or grate raw veggies finely to prevent choking in young children.
1. Fill the pot with water and cook noodles according to package directions. Rinse, drain well and cool.
2. Meanwhile, combine soy sauce, sesame oil, lime juice or vinegar and cilantro in large bowl. Add veggies, black beans and drained noodles and toss well. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Refrigerate to serve chilled; keeps for 3 days.
