This recipe is inspired by tantanmen ramen – a Japanese take on Sichuan dan dan noodles, with a broth made from soya milk and sesame – but it is by no means authentic. Typically this would have a proper stock as the base and be topped with minced (ground) pork, but I got attached to the idea of a ramen that could be knocked up quickly and that remained vegetarian/vegan. I also wanted to use udon noodles (again, untraditional), because I love their texture: big, fat, slippery, chewy – is there anything more satisfying?
A summer favourite. Hiyayakko (冷奴) means chilled tofu in Japanese. Traditionally served with grated ginger, spring onion and a drizzle of shoyu soya sauce. This recipe uses fresh coriander and fresh chilli with a drizzle of toasted sesame oil for an exciting side salad or a light meal.
Tofu can be enjoyed as a side dish or as a centre piece in your meals. This is a crowd-pleaser with an umami rich sauce, which compliments the simple flavour of the tofu and vegetables. The asparagus can be swapped with other vegetables as it's seasonal.
Scrambled Tofu (or Tofu Scramble) is a favourite in our kitchen. It's light to eat, high in protein and very quick and easy to make. Have it for breakfast, brunch or a light lunch or dinner. Clearspring Tofu is a silken soft tofu which works really well with this recipe. We like the wobble soft texture it brings and the key is to not break it down too much or mix it in the pan, to keep an authentic "scramble" consistency.

Everyone loves noodles, so this is the kind of recipe I make for friends and family when they’re coming over. It looks beautiful – vibrant and green – and it tastes so fresh thanks to the mint and lime. It’s a great lunchbox option too; just take the dressing in a separate little pot and stir it together when you’re ready to eat.
This dish offers you a delicious way to add some organic greens and protein into your meal. You can replace the asparagus with any green vegetables, which you can steam or boil, if you prefer not to cook them in oil. A sprinkle of Clearspring’s Atlantic Sea Salad gives this dish an added depth of flavour.

There they created this Umami rich burger. We hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did making it.
