(Servings: 2)

  • 0.5 0.5 packet green tea soba noodles
  • 1.5 1.5 g BLOOM Matcha Green Tea Powder
  • 1 1 Tbsp edamame beans
  • 1 1 small courgettes (zucchini) julienned
  • 0.5 0.5 fresh red chilli
  • lime wedges
  • 200 200 ml filtered water
  • 1/2 cup fresh coriander
  • salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • For the Ginger Sesame sauce
  • 1.5 1.5 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 1 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated or minced
  • 1 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1.5 1.5 Tbsp rice vinegar

Method

Method 

  1. In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the sauce and set aside.
  2. Parboil the green tea soba noodles for 2 minutes in a pan on a medium heat, then drain and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl mix 400ml filtered water and 1/2 teaspoon BLOOM Matcha and bath the noodles in the Matcha ‘bath’ for 15 minutes.
  4. While the noodles soak in the Matcha bath, prepare your courgette noodles using either using a julienne tool or a spiralizer. Cut them into approximately 1/4 inch x 1 1/2 inch matchsticks pieces if you don’t have a julienne tool.
  5. Once noodles have soaked, drain well, return to the pot they cooked in, add courgette noodles, coriander, edamame beans and about 3/4 of the sauce and toss well. Top with the remaining sauce, plus a sprinkling of sesame seeds, freshly chopped chilli rings and salt and pepper to taste. Add as much lime juice as you like – this gives the dish an added ‘zing’!
