  • 320g frozen Essential Edamame Beans
  • 250g dried fine egg noodles
  • 320g Essential Cucumber, halved and sliced
  • 250g pack silken tofu, drained well and cut into 2cm cubes
  • 4 salad onions, finely sliced
  • Sesame seeds, to serve (optional)

Soy & honey dressing

  • 3 tbsp Essential Vegetable Oil
  • 6 tbsp reduced salt soy sauce
  • 2 tsp Essential Clear Honey
  • 1 clove/s garlic, finely grated
  • 1 lime, juice
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil (optional)


  1. For the dressing, whisk together the vegetable oil, soy sauce, honey, garlic, lime juice and toasted sesame oil, if using. Set aside.

  2. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Add the edamame beans, bring back to the boil and simmer for 6 minutes. Add the noodles and simmer for 3 minutes more, then drain in a colander and rinse under warm water from the kettle to wash the starch off the noodles. Drain thoroughly, shaking off as much excess water as possible, and toss with 2 tbsp dressing to prevent the noodles from sticking.

  3. Divide the noodles and edamame beans between plates; top with the cucumber and tofu. Spoon over the remaining dressing and scatter with the salad onions and sesame seeds, if liked.
