Loving this time of the year, I love warm weather but with a breeze, that’s my thing. I feel that with this weather life gets easier, lighter and better. I love to eat fresh and easy salads, quick pasta dishes and if they are veggie loaded, better. I love this recipe so much that I just had to share it with you. The sauce is made with only seven ingredients, yes only seven!!! And it is amazing!!

It is a great sauce to have in the fridge. It tastes amazing with any kind of noodles, or as a dressing for a salad or even as a dipping sauce for spring rolls or a Buddha bowl. Really, it is that good, and best of all is that with this sauce and quinoa noodles you have a perfect vegan dish in under ten minutes. Quinoa has tons of good and clean protein, as well as almonds and when you put the two together … BOOM! And on top of that, you add fresh vegetables… PERFECTION don’t you think?

  • Mix the almond butter, tamari, tahini, vinegar, lemon juice, sesame oil and salt in a bowl until well integrated. Taste for seasoning and adjust if necessary. It can be a bit salty, but it will balance out when the pasta is added.

Notes

The green cabbage, cilantro, scallions and sriracha sauce are optional. But it will take the dish to another level, so I highly recommend them.
