I love noodles and I love vegetables. I think it’s safe to say, I love food! The other day I was in the mood for a cold, crisp, refreshing meal that also had some texture and was simple to make! Ta Da! Vegetable noodles! So delicious and easy, with a creamy avocado sauce, raw salted sunflower seeds, and fresh cherry tomatoes it was delicious! No cooking required, just prep and eat!

    Calling this a “noodle” recipe is deceptive. If some “bad food manufacturer” made a reference like that, honest food people would jump on it. I love metaphor and believe in poetic liscence but these noodles are “mock noodles” at best.

    Good, call, Granny Goat! I felt cheated (although they sound delicious, whatever they are.)
