Broccoli = yum. Ginger = yum. Sesame = yum. So it's not all that surprising that this broccoli, ginger and sesame soba noodle bowl from The Wandering Matilda is one of the yummiest (and easiest) dinners going around. Plus it's vegan, so it's perfect for your next #meatlessmonday. Huzzuh.
2 tbs rice vinegar
5 tbs sesame oil
3 tbs soy sauce
3 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 heaped tbs of finely sliced ginger
1 broccoli, florets chopped
300g soba noodles
Sprinkling of sesame seeds, chilli flakes & spring onion
In a cup, mix together the rice vinegar, sesame oil and soy sauce then leave aside.
Blanch the soba noodles in rapidly boiling water for 2 minutes or until soft. Note—these will cook in an instant so don’t turn your back. Once tender, rinse really well (they’ll be super starchy!).
While that’s cooking, heat a little oil in a pan then add your ginger, garlic and broccoli. Stir fry for a moment then add in your cooked soba noodles. Heat through with the sauce mixture then serve with the sesame seeds, chilli flakes & spring onion. Oishi oishi!
