This dish is perfect when you want comfort food in a hurry! This comforting pasta dish is ready in under 30 minutes. Since this salad is served cold, leftovers are perfect to pack for lunch the next day. I usually pack it alongside some roasted broccoli or a green salad.


  • 8 oz brown rice noodles
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 lime juiced and zested (you’ll need 2 tablespoons lime juice which should come from one lime, but you may need 2)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup OR agave, honey, etc.
  • 2 tablespoons liquid aminos OR coconut aminos OR gluten-free tamari
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 head savoy cabbage, sliced into thin ribbons
  • 1 bunch scallions, sliced into rounds


  1. Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and rinse thoroughly with cold water to cool the noodles completely. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the sesame oil, lime juice, coconut nectar, aminos, garlic, ginger, and zest.
  3. Add in the noodles, cabbage, and scallions. Toss and top with some sesame seeds. Enjoy!
