  • 1 cup shelled edamame beans
  • 2 radishes, very finely sliced
  • 1 cup mung bean sprouts
  • Lebanese cucumbers, sliced into ribbons
  • avocado, sliced

  • 1 sheet nori, cut into thin strips
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • handfull fresh coriander leaves, to serve

  1. Rinse and drain the buckwheat well. In a saucepan, cover buckwheat with 4 cups water and a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil then reduce heat to low.  Cover and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Thoroughly rinse and drain cooked buckwheat and divide among 4 bowls. Arrange edamame, radish, bean sprouts, cucumber and avocado over the buckwheat. Drizzle with vegannaise and top with kimchi, nori, sesame sees and coriander.
  3. Drizzle with sriracha or shoyu sauce, if desired.

Although I’m not a qualified chef I do like to pretend I’m on Master Chef. I source the recipes from the stated source (not sauce) and make them taking the photo of the meal I produce for myself.
