Cold Noodle Salad

Earlier this year I read a great article by Mark Bittman about ChopChop Magazine, whose mission is “to inspire and teach kids to cook real food with their families.” It inspired us to try a subscription to ChopChop. While it’s certainly not a vegan publication, most of their recipes either already are vegan or are easily veganized just by virtue of being simple and healthy. Our 5 year old enjoys looking through the magazine and picking out recipes to try. Unfortunately he wasn’t so keen on this one but we loved it and with him we’ll keep trying. Here’s the recipe from ChopChop. We didn’t have soba noodles so we used whole wheat spaghetti. Which I suppose is another lesson for the kid – you don’t necessarily have to follow a recipe exactly. Substitutions are allowed (and sometimes encouraged).
