Served here on soba noodles, this vegan asparagus salad is bursting with Asian flavours, proteins and iron. Asparagus and peanuts are an unusual combination yet they work together perfectly.


Serves: 2 

  • Dressing
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil or sunflower oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint
  • Salad
  • 50g roasted peanuts chopped coarsely
  • 250g asparagus
  • 100g soba noodles
  • salt and pepper, to taste

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

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