There is something so refreshing about this salad. It’s the perfect lunch dish for me – healthy, clean and filling. Add a little fried tofu or some poached chicken if you like.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
270 g packet organic udon noodles
175g podded fresh broad beans
155g podded fresh peas
2 tablespoons sesame seeds, lightly toasted
4 spring onions, thinly sliced, make sure you use some of the nice green tops too

Spicy lemon dressing

Quantity Ingredient
1 lemon, juiced
20ml rice wine vinegar
60ml soy sauce
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 teaspoon chilli paste
1 teaspoon salt flakes
150ml grapeseed oil or canola oil

Method

  1. Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Add the noodles and cook for 10 minutes, then strain and rinse under cold water until cool.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a smaller pot of water to the boil. Add the broad beans and cook for 1–2 minutes. Remove using a slotted spoon and refresh under cold water. When the broad beans are cool enough to handle, gently squeeze them out of their leathery skins.
  3. Add the peas to the same pot of water the beans were cooked in. Cook for 2–3 minutes, or until just tender. Drain and set aside.
  4. Make sure the noodles are dry, then place into a bowl. Add the peas, broad beans, half the sesame seeds and half the spring onion.
  5. Mix all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl until fully combined.
  6. Drizzle the noodles with the dressing, coating everything. Top with the remaining sesame seeds and spring onion and serve.
