Cold Soba Noodles
For 2 servings
• 250g soba noodles
• 2 small zucchini
• 150g shelled edamame
• 10 radishes, very thinly sliced
• 1 small spring onion, green part only, thinly sliced
• black sesame seeds, to garnish
Lime Ginger Dressing
• 3 tbsp lime juice (approx. 1 lime)
• 2 tbsp soy sauce
• 4 tsp maple syrup
• 1 tbsp sesame oil
• 1-2 tsp freshly grated ginger, adjust to taste
• 1-2 tsp sriracha sauce (adjust to taste)
Prepare a large bowl of cold water. Cook the noodles according to the instructions. Drain the noodles and quickly plunge them into the bowl with cold water. Once they have cool, drain them and place in a bowl with 1 tsp of sesame oil to stop them from sticking.
Next cut the zucchini into 3 equal segments and in half lengthwise. Then place each piece on a chopping board, cut side down, and cut each piece into 6 long wedges.
Heat up a griddle pan. Once hot, brush it with a little bit of oil and place the zucchini pieces on it, cut side down - if don’t have a grill use frying pan. Grill for 4-5 minutes and then turn to the other side. Grill until charred on both sides.
Mix all the dressing ingredients together, adjusting the level of spiciness to taste.
Place the zucchini, edamame, radishes, spring onions and cold noodles in a bowl and stir through the dressing.
Divide the noodles between two bowls. Top with shallots and black sesame seeds.
