You can still eat a healthy lunch on busy days when you meal prep this gluten-free Vegan Superfood Spiralized Salad loaded with good-for-you ingredients like quinoa and chia. Ready in 10 minutes, this is the lunch you crave!
Spiralized Salads are so on trend right now, and there’s a good reason for that. Spiralizing is so much more fun than just chopping. Just the mere process itself is so therapeutic for me. Vegetables and fruits in the shape of noodles definitely give an interesting twist to traditional salads like in this Vegan Superfood Spiralized Salad. This makes a perfect gluten-free lunch or side dish. I love using a spiralizer because I personally think it allows you to sneak more vegetables into your diet. If you are a health freak like me, it’s definitely a must have in the kitchen. Vegetable and fruit noodles are a great way to consume clean, unprocessed food. Keeping it simple and light is the key.
Gluten-Free Vegan Superfood Spiralized Salad
This Vegan Superfood Spiralized Salad is made with ingredients that are readily available and can be easily added to your meal prep routine. There are no fancy ingredients in this salad, but it’s sure to wow you with its exotic flavors. I have used superfoods like quinoa and chia. Cucumbers, mangoes, and basil add fresh, seasonal flavors. Once you top it off with cranberries and pistachios, the salad looks so appealing. The vegan dressing is made with maple syrup, tamari, and vinegar which adds a burst of flavors to the naturally gluten-free curly cucumber noodles. A perfect meal in a bowl loaded with vegetables, fruits, proteins, and grains.
I like to meal prep a big batch of quinoa for the week and store it. After that, all you need is just 10 minutes of your time to make this gluten-free Vegan Superfood Spiralized Salad. If you don’t meal prep, don’t worry; you can cook the quinoa just before you prep the other ingredients. Just toss them all together in a bowl and you are done, as simple as that. So grab your spiralizer and let’s get started.
- 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
- 1 large cucumber, spiralized

Home Chef Tip: Substitute soy sauce in the dressing if you don't have tamari on hand.
