Ingredients
  • Half a packet soba noodles*
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • ½ cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 1½ Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp fresh lime juice
  • ½ tsp dried chilli flakes or more if desired
  • Small handful fresh sunflower sprouts**
  • 2 Tbsp fresh mint leaves
Method
  1. Cook soba noodles according to packet instructions. NOTE: Time your noodles with the cooking time of your steamed vegetables so everything is warm when served. Or re-heat noodles in hot/boiling water for 30 seconds until warmed up again.
  2. Whilst noodles are cooking, prepare a steamer and bring to a boil.
  3. Once steamer is ready, place in broccoli florets and steam until just tender with a slight crunch.
  4. Before the broccoli is fully cooked and tender, add in thawed peas and spinach leaves, steam for a further 1-3 minutes or until all greens are tender or cooked to your liking. Remove from heat.
  5. Place cooked soba noodles in a mixing bowl and drizzle over oil, citrus juices and chilli flakes. Gently mix using your hands or tongs until all the noodles are coated well. NOTE: If you want more chilli flakes, simply sprinkle in more for extra heat!
  6. Place noodles in a serving bowl/s and top with steamed vegetables and fresh sunflower sprouts.
  7. Sprinkle over extra chilli flakes if desired and garnish with fresh mint leaves.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
Notes
*Find soba noodles from your supermarket or local health food store.
