I assume you’re one of the cool kids who are all crazy about Matcha latte nowadays (I’m one of you!). But have you ever eaten Matcha noodles? I found these green tea noodles a few days ago in a supermarket in Tanjong Pagar and just HAD to try them.
At first I was not sure how to prepare them – then I had an idea. Last summer, I went to Berlin and dined at a pretty hip Japanese-Mexican fusion restaurant. I was surprised how well Japanese products go with Mexican flavours. It’s a refreshing killer combination. Unite your love for avocado and green tea.
For approx. 1 meal
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Stuff to buy:
- Green Tea Soba noodles (you can use normal ones as well)
- 1 package of Tofu
- 1 ripe avocado
- A handful of cherry tomatoes
- 1 fresh chili, chopped
- Black Sesame
- Dressing: Soy sauce, brown sugar, lime juice, miso paste
Cook the noodles, chill them and set aside. Dice the tofu, tomatoes and avocado and sprinkle some salt, lime juice, olive oil and the chopped chili on your salsa.
In a bowl, mix 2 tbs of soy sauce, a dash of brown sugar and lime juice and 1 tbs of miso paste until homogenous. Marinate the noodles with this dressing – allow them to absorb the liquid.
Arrange the noodles on a plate, add the salsa and finish it off with a pinch of sesame. Enjoy!
