(Add a little water if its too thick)

This is a great meal as a dinner or to prep the night before and have for lunch the next day.


Instructions


First off make your satay dressing.

  1. Using a freshly cleaned jar with a secure lid (I have old jam jars for dressings in the house) put everything but the lime juice and oil into the jar, tighten the lid and give it a good shake.

  2. Remove lid and add the oil and lime juice before a final shake and voila, easy satay dressing which will keep for up to 3-4 days with lid on in fridge.


Now its time to cook your soba noodles.

  1. Follow the instructions on the packet, once cooked drain and run under cold water to stop the cooking process as you don't want them to go mushy.

  2. Set aside or if you are preparing place in airtight container overnight, prepare the remainder of the food on day of eating.

  3. Trim and wash your Tat Soi or other asian greens and steam, if taking this to work you can do this in a microwave by rinsing the leaves before placing in microwavable bowl, cover with a plate, cling film or microwave lid, cook on a high heat for about 30 seconds - 1 minute.


 Alternatively if making at home, steam using your preferred method.


Prepare your salad vegetables,  chop your tomatoes, celery, chilli and avocado and place on

plate along with your cooked Tat Soi and noodles.

Add your pickled ginger, chopped nuts and lime wedges, drizzle with your Satay dressing and enjoy!


A delicious, explosion of flavours which you will find hard not to have time and time again.
