Serves: 2 

  • 50g roasted peanuts chopped coarsely
  • 250g asparagus
  • 100g soba noodles
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Dressing
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil or sunflower oil

  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:4min  ›  Ready in:14min 

  1. Heat some salted water in 2 separate pans.
  2. In a bowl, make the dressing by mixing together oils, lemon juice, soy sauce, garlic, sugar and mint.
  3. Chop peanuts and reserve on the side.
  4. When water is boiling, cook asparagus for 3 minutes in one of the pans and soba noodles (also for 3 to 4 minutes) in the other pan.
  5. Drain asparagus when tender. Drain soba noodles separately and rinse them under cold water so they do not stick together. Season both to taste.
  6. Serve on two plates sharing soba noodles and asparagus evenly.
  7. Add dressing on top followed by a generous sprinkle of peanuts.
