SUPER GREEN NOODLE SALAD RECIPE
Updated: May 18
This salad is addictive! You have to try and you can thank me later.
The salad is packed with edamame, peas + seeds for lots of plant protein goodness. Then the noodles are tossed in this "Asian" inspired dressing which is what makes this salad so addictive!
It is a great meal prep salad and will keep well for a day or 2.
250g soba noodles (or noodles of choice - maybe egg)
4 spring onions finely chopped
30g mixed seeds (pumpkin, sunflower etc)
150g frozen edamame beans
160g frozen peas
DRESSING: 2tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp sesame oil, 1 tsp grated ginger
TO FINISH: Lime, more seeds
Step 1: Boil
Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Add the soba noodles + cook as per the packet instructions. 3 mins before the cooking time is up add the frozen edamame beans + peas. Once the noodles + vegetables are tender, immediately drain + run under cold water to chill quickly for 30-60 secs. Then drain again.
Step 2: Chop
Finely chop the spring onion + add to a large bowl. Peel the cucumber, chop in half, scoop out the watery seeds, discard. Then chop the cucumber into small dice and add to the bowl. Add the drained cooled noodles + vegetables to the bowl too.
Step 3: Mix
In a bowl mix all the dressing ingredients, taste for seasoning. Pour over the noodle salad and give it all a good toss.
Step 4: Serve
This can be served immediately with extra seeds and a squeeze of lime. Or boxed up in glass tuperware as an on the go lunch.
For extra greens serve with a rocket or spinach salad. Both these greens will stand up to the punchy dressing.
