Being able to keep to a budget means being able to plan ahead and think of multiple recipes for a single ingredient. It was cheaper to buy a big bunch of mint from the Asian veggie stall than a couple of meagre stalks from the supermarket so I knew I would have quite a bit leftover yesterday from my green pizza recipe.

But no worries, this raw vegan rainbow noodle salad immediately came to mind. I’ve made similar versions of this salad before with vegetables, mint and rice noodles; a kind of Vietnamese-inspired cold noodle salad. But since getting a spiralizer for Christmas, I’ve been keen on using it whenever I can. Enter zoodles.

They say that the spiralizer was the most given gift last Christmas and if you don’t have one yet, what are you waiting for!?!?! They’re so much fun and make preparing mixed vegetable salads like this one super quick. You’ll be surprised how quickly a spiralizer can turn a whole zucchini into a pile of zoodles ready to be prepared any way you want.

In this case I’ve decided to keep everything super easy and make raw vegan noodles – no cooking involved. Fresh crunchy raw veggies tossed in a simple soy, rice vinegar and miso dressing with a bit of mint mixed in for a refreshing note.

This zoodle salad is super versatile – you don’t need to follow the recipe to a T. Use whatever vegetables you have on hand and feel free to add in more herbs; basil and cilantro are good choices. You can even make it without a spiralizer, just use a julienne peeler or chop everything thinly.

Carrots, red cabbage, garlic: Thai Buddha bowl with peanut red curry sauce

Cucumber, cherry tomato: Baked beet falafel vegan quinoa bowl

Zucchini: Spring vegetable zoodle pasta

    So can I prepare the sauce beforehand and then put it in the fridge for later use?
