Another leftover creation that turned out so delish, that I will just make it on purpose and not wait for leftovers! A little Italian, a little Asian – win win!
Of course I had sprinkled everything on top, really pretty, to take an appetizing Insta-pic but then I stirred it and started eating it before I remembered to take the PICTURE!!
We like the really thin spaghettini or vermicelli noodles when we are eating pasta. I love to have just a little taste of noodle and mostly taste the veggies and sauce that I’ve dressed it with.
Since, I was starting with leftover spaghettini that had been in the fridge, it was cold and I decided to roll with it and make a cold noodle ‘salad’.
I added my seed mix. This SUPERFOOD mix I’m trying for the first time. Usually I just add hemp hearts and the “salad topper” from Costco that has pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and dried cranberries in it. Either way these seeds are a healthy source of fat, great fibre and add a nice crunch. I also sprinkled some chili powder, S&P and chopped up fresh basil. For a little moisture and some salty asian flavour (because that is what I love, give me heat and salt and I’m a happy girl!) I added a splash of tamari. Tamari is fermented soy sauce. Because of the fermentation, the salt doesn’t effect your blood pressure the same way that it would with other salty products and it is gluten-free if you need that.
If you decide to give it a try I hope you like it as much as I did!
