Recipe by Adelenne Lee

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 1 - 2 portions

Ingredients

1 portion soba noodles. You can find these in the Asian / Japanese section of the supermarket
1/2 cup grated carrots
6-7 sugar snap peas, sliced thickly
1/4 cup chopped spring onions / scallions
1/4 cup chopped coriander / cilantro

*** Please note, if Gluten Free Noodles are important for your diet, please check the packaging as some manufacturers also add wheat in the noodles. Look for Buckwheat Flour on the packaging.

Dressing:

1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp sesame seeds
1 tsp light soy sauce
1/2 tsp honey (for the sweetness)
1/2 tsp Chinese rice wine (optional)
1 Tablespoon hot water.
A pinch of chili seeds (optional)

Instructions

1. In a cup, mix together all the dressing ingredients well and allow to cool. Taste the dressing to see if you need more salt in the way of soy sauce, or more sweetness by adding more honey. Adjust to your own taste.

2. Cook the soba noodles in boiling water for 4-5 mins. Drain and run over cold water. Drain well and put into a large bowl.

3. Add carrots, sugar snap peas, spring onions and cilantro. Add the dressing and toss everything well and serve.

TIP: It is easier to use your fingers to toss the noodles with the other ingredients to ensure you don't break the noodles.

  1. Not all soba is GF!! Most of it is
    a blend of buckwheat and wheat flour. Eden is the only brand I know of
    that specifies 100% buckwheat for some of its soba. Love sesame noodles
    though!!
