Creamy Sesame Arame with Skinny Soba Somen Noodles

Sea vegetables have phytonutrients found nowhere else, special types of fibre, and unique carotenoids and polysaccharides, and various polyphenol defense compounds, each of which may have anti-cancer properties. I encourage everyone to try experimenting until you find the sea vegetables that you love and incorporate them into your diet. This dish is my favourite, I could eat it to a band playing, nutrient dense and so tasty. Serve with a bowl of miso soup and some grated daikon.

Serves 4

Ingredients

Method

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the soba noodles for 3 minutes.
  2. Drain and rinse in cold water, set aside.
  3. Place the rinsed arame in a small pan and add enough filtered water to cover, bring to a boil and simmer on low heat for 15 minutes.
  4. Gently stir in the sauerkraut, tahini and corn and simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Arrange the soba noodles in a bowl and top with the creamy arame.
  6. Garnish with the spring onions and lemon zest. Delicious.

I love this hot, soothing miso soup as a pick-me up at any time of the day. Simply pop the ingredients in a tea cup, top up with hot water, done! Or, bring them to work portioned up and ready to go – perfect for meal prep. You can vary this recipe indefinitely, just include something a little spicy or acidic to lift the salty miso. I like a few spoons of oats in mine to make it a little more substantial, almost like rice!

Matcha is one of my favourite foods! I love its flavour and colour as well as its subtly uplifting effect. It tastes amazing in sweets so here I've used it as I would cacao to make indulgent little brownie bites. The oats give creaminess and make the bites lighter, rice malt syrup adds a slight chewiness and miso rounds everything off beautifully. Just as good popped into your bag or lunchbox to keep you going, or with a cup of tea.
