I think it's easy to see that I love soba. They are such a simple (and delicious) noodle which can create a fabulous dish in minutes. This is one of my ultimate favourite lunch time meals. It's super super quick to make and it not only is it delicious it's also got all my favourite elements: leafy greens, good fats, a fermented component and a little bit of protein.

This is a great dish to whip up before work or school when you know you have no time but don't want to have to have to buy some junk on your lunch break. Or when you come home and really don't feel like cooking, it is so quick you will hardly even notice you turned on the stove!

This recipe is part of my "Good Food for Busy People" spread in the May/June 2014 issue of Nourish Magazine. Available for purchase from Coles, Woolworths and news agencies. 

Serves: 2

150g soba noodles
1/2 avocado
1 tbsp miso paste
1 tsp tamari
1 tbsp sesame oil
3 large kale leaves
2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

Cook the soba noodles in a pot of boiling water. Once tender drain noodles and run under cold water.

In a bowl mash the avocado and add in the miso paste. Mix together.

Add in the noodles with the tamari and sesame oil and mix until all noodles are coated.

Shred the kale leaves and then steam for 1 minute before adding into noodles. Mix in with the sesame seeds and place in two noodle boxes.
