Sichuan Sesame Shirataki Noodles and Cucumber Salad [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
Have you heard of shirataki noodles? These clear, chewy are noodles made from the konjac yam and they're amazing in recipes inspired by East Asian cuisine. In this recipe, these noodles take center stage, served with a dressing that doesn't skimp on the savory umami flavor. This salad is refreshingly tasty and super easy to make. It only takes a few minutes to rinse the pasta and mix the dressing.
