Umami, translated from Japanese, means "pleasant savoury taste" and very pleasant it is too. For this recipe, Umami Paste is used to flavour Soba noodles while the crunchy vegetables add colour, vitamins and minerals. The rich savoury flavour Umami flavour complements the sweetness of the maple syrup and the nuttiness of the noodles. This is very quick and easy dish perfect for a nourishing lunch or light supper.
