Spiced Vegetable Somen Recipe

Spiced Vegetable Somen

My adaptation of the Japanese noodle salads. The Redergize salad from the food truck garage changed the way I saw salads. I have concluded that salads, rather than a cooked meal, can outplay the taste buds. I have, now, stocked up on quinoa and somen noodles, amongst other items, to make quick weekday lunches and dinners. This is a quick weekday lunch which can be had cold as well.
A quick, healthy dinner almost just thrown together with vegetables in the fridge
