Thai Pasta Salad

I love this Thai-Inspired Pasta Salad. It’s a delicious vegan, no oven meal that is packed with nutrients. Plus, with chickpea pasta, it’s gluten free and has lots of protein. Pasta salad makes such a good weekday meal idea, and this one is colorful with so many veggies and fresh ingredients. The peanut sauce is to-die for, too! You can bookmark this for when you need a quick recipe; it works great as a side dish for any get-togethers. It’s a fun plant-based twist on a classic pasta salad recipe! Let me know if you try it.

10 oz chickpea pasta 

1 chopped bell pepper 

1 cup chopped cucumber

1/3 cup green onions, diced

1 tsp apple cider vinegar 

1 tbsp coconut aminos or soy sauce 

1/4 cup water 


Cook the noodles according to package instructions.

Rinse and let cool.

While the pasta cooks/cools, chop your veggies: you’ll also want to make the sauce here. 

In a small bowl, combine the sauce ingredients and whisk together until smooth 

When the pasta is done cooling, add to a bowl also with the chopped veggies.

Then add the sauce on top and toss together.

This makes about 6 servings! Enjoy!
