Sesame Ginger Shirataki Noodle Salad for Passover

Finally, after several days of indulgent Passover treats, here is a savoury recipe for you.

This one basically adapts one I make all the time to be for Passover.  Having to avoid wheat and other grains isn't even the hardest part of Passover for me, it's actually having to also avoid legumes.  This means I can't even use soy sauce!  Thankfully, most health food stores now offer alternatives to soy sauce like coconut aminos.  I subbed coconut vinegar in for the rice vinegar I would usually use, but Adam wasn't overly impressed with that.  I agree, it's definitely better with soy sauce and rice vinegar, but for 8 days of the year, this will do.  It's still very tasty.

For all you not celebrating Passover, this is still a yummy recipe that is great for people eating gluten-free, low-carb, etc.

This is a big recipe, because it was served at our family sedar, so feel free to half it if you don't want to make as much.

Sesame Ginger Shirataki Noodle Salad for Passover


2-1lb shirataki noodles (the soy-free kind), cut with scissors
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 340g bags broccoli or rainbow slaw
1 bunch green onions, sliced


1/2 cup tahini/sesame butter
1/4 cup coconut aminos
1/4 cup coconut vinegar
2 tbls grated fresh ginger
1 tbls toasted sesame oil
Salt and crushed red chili flakes, to taste

Whisk together ingredients for dressing and set aside.

Place noodles and garlic in hot fry pan for 3-4 minutes.  Toss into a large bowl with slaw and onions.  Pour in dressing and mix well.  If there is any excess moisture from noodles in the salad, sprinkle in 2 tsp of konjac flour and mix well.  Serve at room temperature.

I have shared this recipe with the Plant-Based Pot-Luck Link-Up Party.


  1. Hi Erica,
    Wow, what a wonderful new dish for me to try. I have never used shirataki noodles so this will be a tasty new culinary experience for me. The tahini ginger dressing with sesame oil and garnish of red chili flakes must taste amazing. What a crowd pleaser you have shared with us at the Plant-Based Potluck Party Blog Hop! I appreciate it!

Blackfly Coolers: Product Review

Summer is over! Well, at least if you're a student. Officially it doesn't end for a few weeks, and it certainly still feels like summer. Yeah, I hate it. This f*cking hot, humid weather needs to end NOW! We made the most of our last weekend of the summer with our annual trip to the CNE on Friday, with a crowd of friends. It wasn't unbearably lot, thank goodness, and the girls and their friends had a blast on the rides.  Saturday I had to work, and Sunday was errand day. Monday we took the girls berry/apple/pear picking but didn't last long due to the heat. I organized the house to prepare for the construction workers starting back up yesterday, while Adam took the girls for a swim in our neighbourhood pool.

Yesterday was the first day of school. Grade 2 and Grade 5. Yep, the girls are growing up.  We are fortunate that the girls don't have much anxiety about school, they are so much more confident than I ever was as a kid! But now, in the midst of our reno chaos, …

Live Clean

I have been committed to living a healthy life through nutrition and fitness for over 20 years now.

It took me a lot longer to pay attention to what I was cleaning the house with and what I was putting ON my body as opposed to IN it.

When I got pregnant with Big A I started reading about the toxins in a lot of commercial cleaning products and switched to the all-natural, eco-friendly stuff. When I became pregnant with Little A, I switched to all-natural, eco-friendly personal care products.

I am all for being environmentally friendly for the good of the planet, but to be honest, what really motivates me to make these types of changes is concern for my family's health.

You may remember I mentioned giving up my favorite perfume a while back because it apparently is full of nasty chemicals. I switched to the "Red Tea" scent made my Roots, which is supposed to be somewhat "natural". This was only after a number of trial and errors. I first found a woman in …

Panang Curry

When we go out for Thai food, one of my favorite things to order is the panang curry. But there is no doubt when this dish is made in a restaurant, it packs a hefty wallop of fat, sodium and calories.

My version is lightened up, but still rich and flavourful and it is super simple to make.

Traditionally, panang curry is made with either beef or chicken, but I made it vegetarian, using dried seiten (wheat gluten) I got at T&T a few weeks ago. If you are not sensitive to gluten, this is a great source of vegetarian protein. If you cannot find it dried, you can get it prepared at most health food stores. Alternatively, you can use tofu, or the more traditional chicken or beef options.

This dish also doesn't usually have much vegetable matter in it, but I love how yummy veggies taste when simmered in this sauce, and it makes this a healthy one-pot meal. Use whatever veggies you prefer or have on hand.

Protein of choice (2 cups seiten or 1 lb organic tofu, boneless skinless ch…
