Easy, spicy with an Asian flare. A great way to include as many vegetables as possible, masking them with a spicy sauce that will make anything taste amazing!


  • 200 g (7 oz) rice noodles
  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • 1/4 courgette (zucchini), cut into ribbons
  • 1/4 red (bell) pepper, julienned
  • 1/4 yellow (bell) pepper, julienned
  • 1/4 mango, julienned
  • 1 spring onion (scallion), chopped
  • Handful of spinach

For the peanut dressing

  • 1/2 red chilli, finely chopped
  • A few sprigs of basil
  • 1/2 lime
  • Black sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tablespoon finely grated fresh root ginger
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar 80 ml (21/2 fl oz / 1/3 cup)
  • Water
  • 1 tablespoon tamari soy sauce

To serve

  • A few sprigs of mint
  • A few sprigs of basil or Thai basil
  • 1/2 lime
  • Black sesame seeds


1. Cook the rice noodles following the packet instructions. Drain and set aside.

2. Mix all the dressing ingredients together in a bowl, and set aside.

3. Combine all the prepared vegetables for the noodle dish in a big bowl. Add in the noodles and stir in the dressing so that everything gets coated.

4. Serve in bowls sprinkled with the fresh herbs and with a lime wedge for squeezing over. Sprinkle over some black sesame seeds for a bit of extra crunch.

A great dish for making in advance – perfect as a lunch-box meal to take to work.
