Asian Inspired Warm Black Bean Noodle Salad

Asian Inspired Warm Black Bean Noodle Salad
This is what a had for lunch today! It was a nice, light and healthy salad. I cheated a bit by using bottled black bean sauce. If you are a purist you could probably substitute in any type of sauce.

Ingredients

  • large hand full of thin Asian noodles (the kind that cook in 3 minutes)
  • black bean sauce
  • Flax oil (for omega 3's)
  • sesame seeds
  • Lettuce
  • red pepper
  • green onion
  • peanuts (a kick of protein)
  • salt n' pepper
Directions
  1. Cook up the pasta and drain. Mix in a bit of black been sauce (not too much as the noodles are thin and easily flavoured), flax oil and some sesame seeds. Leave aside to cool a bit.
  2. Line your bowl with lettuce leaves. Chop up the red pepper and green onion. 
  3. Place your noodles in your lettuce bowl and top with the red peppers, green onions, peanuts, a few more sesame seeds and salt n' pepper. Enjoy!
