Delighted Wednesday men! Hope the sun is shining in your part of the world too. We have actually lastly entered summer season area and my state of mind has actually raised, as if by magic. I attempt to slip out to the garden (aka jungle!! weeds are taking control of the back once again) as much as I can although today is quite stressful so swinging in my hammock needs to wait while I arrange things out. I brought great deals of things from my London flat, which is now jumbling our home, there is great deals of cleaning to be done and great deals of test cooking to do too. No rest for the wicked

As I have a tendency for being overwhelmed I discover it tough when a lot of things require my attention simultaneously, so I am attempting to make a little development every day. Things WILL get arranged ultimately, there is no point getting stressed out I inform my inner ‘restless perfectionist’ self. As quickly as I clear the stockpile, I prepare to welcome some buddies over as my remain in London has actually advised me simply just how much I have actually missed out on hanging out. Due to the fact that of the lockdown, I have actually invested far excessive time in my ‘cavern’.

This easy summer season salad has actually a laid back garden supper celebration ambiance about it and it is among the important things I intend on making when the time comes. It’s light and filling and easy to make. Make the teriyaki sauce ahead of time– you can likewise purchase it, however it’s so easy to make that you may also supervise of what enters into it. Prepare your noodles ahead of time and purchase ready-to-eat edamame. When it comes to broccoli, spring onions and tofu skewers you can merely toss all of those onto a barbie while your visitors are getting settled in. It’s likewise among those meals that can be consumed partly cold, as a salad and is rather filling and pleasing. It has an intriguing mesh of flavours and textures that keep you connecting for more. I hope you’ll concur.

  • serves: 4
  • preparation: 15 minutes
  • cooking: 30 minutes



  • 80 ml/ 1/3 cup soy sauce or tamari
  • 120 ml/ 1/2 cup cooking sake/ dry sherry or water
  • 120 ml/ 1/2 cup mirin
  • 50 g/ 1/4 cup sugar or agave/ maple syrup, get used to taste


  • 400 g/ 14 oz company or additional company tofu, pushed
  • 30 ml/ 2 tablespoon soy sauce or tamari
  • 200 g/ 7 oz udon, soba or flat rice noodles
  • 200 g/ 7 oz tenderstem broccoli, sliced little
  • 3 spring onions/ scallions

  • 30 ml/ 2 tablespoon soy sauce or toasted sesame oil and/ or chilli oil
  • 15 ml/ 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • sesame seeds, to embellish



  1. Integrate all the components in a little pot and bring them to a simmer. If utilizing sugar, stir till the sugar has actually liquified entirely. Simmer, exposed, on a low heat till the sauce has actually decreased and thickened– it will take roughly 15-20 minutes. Enable the sauce to cool off entirely prior to utilizing, it will thicken as it cools.


  1. Cut pushed tofu into equivalent size cubes (mine were 2 cm/ 3/4″). Mix soy sauce with 1 tablespoon of water in a medium bowl, include tofu cubes and enable them to marinade till all of the liquid has actually been taken in. You can avoid this action if you want, however I do this so that the tofu is experienced all the method through.
  2. Thread tofu cubes onto 4 metal or wood skewers. If utilizing wood skewers on a BARBEQUE ensure to soak them in water thirty minutes prior to utilizing. To ensure all the tofu pieces touch the pan/ BARBEQUE grill, it’s finest to thread them on a flat surface area.
  3. Location tofu skewers on a preheated griddle pan or a reasonably hot (white coals) BARBEQUE. Enable them to prepare till char marks establish prior to relying on another side.
  4. As soon as your tofu has actually prepared on all sides, brush it freely with teriyaki sauce (you might wish to reapply it throughout cooking) and go back to the BARBEQUE or location under a hot grill/ broiler if cooking this in your home. Prepare quickly, till the marinade has actually caramelised a little however not burned (it includes sugar so will burn quickly).
  5. Prepare noodles according to package directions and revitalize under a cold tap.
  6. Steam, grill or stir-fry broccoli, white and white-green parts of the spring onions sliced approximately (piece green parts carefully and conserve them for garnish) and steam or stir-fry edamame (if utilizing frozen). If barbecuing broccoli and spring onions, toss them in a percentage of neutral oil prior to putting on a grill or a griddle pan.
  7. Integrate 2 tablespoon of teriyaki sauce with toasted sesame and/ or chilli oil and rice vinegar. Season to taste with more soy sauce if required. Stir through the cooled noodles.
  8. Organize dressed noodles, prepared broccoli, edamame and spring onions on a plate. Garnish with spring onion tops and sesame seeds and drizzle with additional sauce if preferred. Serve with tofu skewers on the side.


* The standard dish utilizes 120 ml/ 1/2 cup of soy sauce, however I personally discovered it a little too salted so my tip is to utilize less and include more to taste if required. My teriyaki sauce is adjusted from this recipe.
