This is a gluten-free Vegan Ramen Salad With Sesame Ginger Dressing made with lots of interesting veggies, cashews and sesame seeds. This vegan noodle salad is particularly sought after in the cooler months when big, robust flavours are needed.

What is ramen?

Ramen is a Japanese classic noodle dish. It consists of wheat, or buckwheat noodles served in rich meat or fish-based broth, often flavoured with miso, and uses several toppings such as sliced pork, chicken, nori, menma (bamboo shoots), and green onions.

For this ramen recipe, I skipped the broth, used gluten-free noodles, added plenty of veggies and finished the salad with an incredibly delicious sesame ginger dressing.

Vegan ramen salad with more than just noodles!

Since I love ramen, this salad was a huge hit with me. In this vegan dish, I used baby kale, edamame beans, julienned carrots, water chestnuts, roasted cashews, green onions and plenty of sesame seeds.

To bring out the fresh flavours, I added a light dressing made with olive oil, toasted sesame oil, rice vinegar, a hint of garlic and for a touch of sweetness a drizzle of maple syrup.

The veggies, noodles and cashews combined with the light dressing ensure to deliver the maximum flavour and texture in a bowl.

So this is definitely not such a boring ramen salad, it is satisfying and, most of all, healthy. I hope you are enjoying my healthy recipes coming your way.
