Crispy noodle slaw with a soy, honey & ginger dressing recipe

A delicious crispy noodle slaw recipe with a soy, honey & ginger dressing.




12 packets of 2-minute noodles

5 cups finely shredded cabbage

½ cup finely sliced sugar snap peas (optional)

1/3 cup of flaked almonds, toasted

1/3 cup sunflower seeds toasted

+-2Tbsp toasted sesame seeds

6 spring onions finely sliced (white and pale green parts)


2 Tbsp + 2 tsp soy sauce

¼ cup red wine vinegar

1/3 cup sunflower oil

1 tsp sesame oil (optional)

¼ cup runny honey

1 x garlic clove, minced

1 heaped tsp grated ginger

12 tsp wasabi paste, or one red chilli finely sliced, or a ½ tsp dried chilli flakes (optional to add heat)



Cut up all the vegetables and mix together in a large bowl.

Heat the grill element of your oven and break up the noodles onto a baking sheet and toast for about 10 – 15 cm under the grill until golden brown. Keep a close eye as they burn quickly and shake the pan a few times during the grilling process. Set aside.

Dry pan fry the seeds until they start to pop and turn golden brown. Remove from the pan to prevent carry-over cooking and set aside. 

Put all the dressing ingredients into an empty jar and shake around.

Toss the dressing, seeds, noodles and nuts together and serve immediately.
