Vegan Pasta Salad with Miso Dressing

This title probably sounds completely disgusting to you, so if you clicked on this post you are brave! And if you are curious, it is actually a really good dish even though it sounds boring/odd/gross/too healthy.

I do all of my grocery shopping at either Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s or at farmers markets on the weekend. So like many grocery stores, I tried a sample walking around one day and came across these yummy noodles!

These are called GreeNoodle and they are just like any other “pasta” you would use, but these are vegan instead and only 90 calories a serving! It is really versatile and you can add it with any broth you have for a hot soup or use dressing instead and chill it in the fridge for a pasta salad alternative.

I like these noodles as a pasta salad, so I add in some Miso Sesame dressing and it is DELICIOUS at only 25 calories a tablespoon! This dressing add tons of flavor to anything that is bland like noodles, salad or meat. I used Galeo’s Miso Dressing and it is gluten free, all natural and has no MSG.

This recipe is really easy to make, yummy, healthy and can be paired with so many different ingredients. I’m going to share with you a base recipe … then you can add whatever you want to it! You can eat this as a meal if you add some protein, or keep it like this as a side dish.

  1. Hi I would love to try this out and in your post it says you usually shop at either trader joes or whole foods, are these ingredients available at one or the other location? They’re near my house so I would be down to pick them up there rather than ordering online! Thanks bunches, love your blog!

  2. Marianna, I love eating these noodles and they have different varieties. I wanted to also let all the readers that lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. These noodles are sold in Hayward, Ca at Eon Cafe its a coffee shop where these noodles are manufactured. I believe they are about less than $2 per pack. =) enjoy your noodles!
