Overview

These raw Asian-inspired noodles are my live version of one of those instant noodle packs that are popular as instant side-dishes that pack zero nutrition. Plus, I'd argue that my recipe is even quicker to prepare (since you don't have to boil and wait), as long as you have a spiralizer to make your zucchini noodles,

Ingredients

Nutrition Facts

Directions

  • 1. Add cashews and sun-dried tomatoes to your food processor. Pulse to incorporate.
  • 2. Now add carrot and chili powder (and optional basil) to the food processor mixture. Process again until smooth, resembling a nut pate. 
  • 3. To make your noodles, peel your zucchini (remove outer green peel).
  • 4. Use a clean vegetable peeler (or a spirooli spiralizer if you have one) to slice zucchini into “noodles.”
  • 5. Place the noodles and the sauce into a large bowl and gently stir using two spoons until well combined. Eat immediately.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

These raw Asian-inspired noodles are my live version of one of those instant noodle packs that are popular as instant side-dishes that pack zero nutrition. Plus, I'd argue that my recipe is even quicker to prepare (since you don't have to boil and wait), as long as you have a spiralizer to make your zucchini noodles, that is. (Best investment ever! Besides a Vitamix blender, of course!)

The Asian sauce is a thicker sauce than you might be used to, it's more of a nut pate. But don't worry about it. Just be gentle and thorough when mixing it with your noodles, and the final result will be similar to the photos.

The Asian sauce/pate keeps extremely well in the fridge for up to 3 days. However, zucchini noodles should not be made in advance. So if making in advance, store the sauce in the fridge, and then make your zucchini noodles at the last minute and then assemble. Once assembled, the recipe does not keep well (it'll get soggy).

Raw asian noodle salad recipe
5
5 out of 5

i just made this 10 minutes ago! it tastes more like spaghetti but nonetheless it is so yummy! it goes really well with the zucchini noodles!
i added a couple of button mushrooms into the sauce since i had some lying around and added a little bit of water since i don't have a food processor (i'm using a magic bullet instead since i'm a raw newbie ;) ) but it was very delicious and best of all i feel guilt-free eating this! i'm definitely making it again since this is tasty AND healthy.
i really love how your recipes have minimal ingredients but doesn't sacrifice the taste.
thank you Laura Jane! :)

I can't wait to try this recipe! Question: I notice you enjoy a lot of alfalfa sprouts. :) I would love to incorporate more of these in our diet. How do you best enjoy them? Do you add a dressing or something? Thanks!

Hi Carissa!

You are right about my enjoying a lot of alfalfa sprouts! I don't tend to eat them on their own, but I love incorporating them into a salad or on top of raw crackers or as a garnish (for added flavor) on raw veggie burgers etc...

So yes, I usually use a dressing (whatever salad dressing I am already using), for example, a vinagrette dressing or a raw ranch.

Hope this helps!

Yummy! Mine tasted a bit more like Italian spaghetti than Asian noodles... maybe I used too much basil? However, I'm not dropping the star rating because I loved it, regardless! Thanks Laura Jane!

Your recipes look AMAZING and i like that they do not contain 20 ingredients! LOL. Thank you for posting and for the beautiful pictures for all of us to use! What do you think about adding a teaspoon or so of MISO to the sauce?

Hi Christina!

Thank you so much for your lovely note.

Re: miso, I don't consider it raw, but I am sure that the taste would be delightful if you are okay with that :)

Hey, may I know if buckwheat noodles are considered raw? :)

Hi Jocelyn,

No, buckwheat noodles are not considered raw. Kelp noodles are though. Or you can make noodles out of zucchini, as described here.

Hope this helps!

Back in university I lived on those 40ct instant noodle packs ;-)

Since I won't eat them anymore, your recipe sounds so, so good. I'd love to try.
