  • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 100g broccoli florets
  • 1 flat mushroom, sliced
  • 30g edamame beans
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 shallot thinly, sliced

1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°. Line a baking tray

  2. Whisk together the soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, tahini, peanut butter and The Chilli Factory Hot Chilli Tomato & Basil Relish until smooth
  3. Cook the soba noodles for 3-4 in boiling water. Drain and rinse under cold water
  4. In a bowl, season the cucumber with table salt. Toss and let them sit for 5-10 minutes. Squeeze out the excess water, and dress with 1 tsp rice wine vinegar. Set aside
  5. In a non-stick pan, heat the sesame oil. Add the broccoli, mushrooms and edamame. Cook until they start to soften. Add half of the chilli sesame peanut sauce to the pan and stir fry until fully coated and it starts to thicken. Remove from the heat
  6. Add the noodles to the hot pan (heat off!) add the remaining sauce and stir until thick, glossy and fully coated.
  7. Transfer everything to your bowl, top with the baked tofu, pickled cucumber and shallots.
