Courgetti noodle salad with miso & orange dressing

As the last signs of summer fade, I thought I´d share the recipe for one of my most popular salads. The summer has been long and hot; the calendar filled with al fresco events, feeding mums and pregnant women in Barcelona. The BCN Hungry MAMAS have eaten a large part of my repertoire of dishes, but this has been a clear favourite. I´ve made it many times and although it has been served cold on a picnic table, there´s no reason it couldn´t be warmed up. This salad is mainly about the freshness of ingredients….and the dressing. Oh, that dressing!

Courgetti noodle salad ingredients
What you will need to make this dish


2 courgettes, spiralized

2 carrots, spiralized

1 red onion, thinly sliced

Vermicelli rice noodles, 2 nests

Coriander, small bunch

Peanuts, 60g roasted

Nigella seeds, 2 tsp

Dressing ingredients:

1/2 an orange, juiced & zested

1 tbsp miso paste

2 tbsp honey

3 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp rice wine vinegar

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp sesame oil

1 clove garlic, crushed


Place the rice noodles into a bowl and cover with boiling water. After 5 minutes, drain and chop with scissors into bite sized pieces.

The most fun part of this recipe is spiralizing the courgettes and carrots. It´s really satisfying!

How can one humble courgette give you all of this?!

Put them in a bowl and add the onion, coriander and the peanuts. Mix in the noodles once they have cooled and sprinkle the nigella seeds on top.
