Ana's Kelp Noodle Salad Recipe

Ana's Kelp Noodle Salad - This delicious recipe was developed by our very own accountant Ana :).

12 oz Kelp Noodles | 1 small broccoli crown | 1 big carrot | 1/4 red pepper | 1/4 fennel root (anise root) | 1/2 yellow squash| 2 garlic cloves | small bunch of parsley | 2 tbsp. celtic sea salt | 4 tbsp. Nama Shoyu (to taste) | 1 scallion | 1/4 cup Pine Nuts | 1/4 cup Sultana Raisins |1/4 cup of Olive Oil

Soak the noodles for about 2 hours in water with salt. Strain the noodles than add to serving bowl. Put coarse salt & garlic in a mortar & smash garlic with salt until it becomes a paste.

Add the garlic paste, the Nama Shoyu & Olive Oil to the noodles & mix. Put all vegetables except for scallion in a food processor & pulse about six times to create very small pieces. Add the veggies & scallion to noodles mixture and mix everything well.

Finally garnish with pine nuts & raisins. Enjoy!

This looks pretty good. What does soaking the noodles for 2 hours actually do? Does it wash stuff off or actually make the noodles more like traditional wheat pasta noodles?

Can't wait to try it!

Hi Patrick,

Soaking the noodles will allow them to before softer - more like a traditional pasta noodle. If the noodles are not soaked they have more of a crunchy texture. It's personal preference how you prefer them. Try them both ways and see which way you prefer. Soaking them in apple cider vinegar or coconut aminos also helps to soften them as well.
