I have made this salad quite a few times now and I’m still amazed at how quickly the meal is ready and on the table. It’s particularly quick because the noodles are cooking in the Thermomix bowl whilst the vegetables are steaming in the Varoma. The vegetables in this salad take only 3.5 minutes to steam so cooking them in the Thermomix ensures that they won’t be forgotten and overcooked.

In the hot weather, we tend to eat a lot of salads so I am always trying to vary the flavours and style of salads. This salad is completely different to what I would normally prepare as it doesn’t include a creamy mayonnaise or cheese and has a light Asian feel to the flavours.

Tips for making the perfect Soba Noodle Salad

The soba noodles and vegetables only take 3.5 minutes to cook so it’s important not to overcook them.

  • Attend to the noodles and vegetables as soon as the Thermomix is finished or they will continue to cook!
  • Rinse the vegetable and noodles separately in a strainer under cold water.
  • Remove the seeds from the chilli if you are serving the dish to children.
  • Allow time for the salad to cool before serving.
