For the Carrots & Turnips

  • 1 carrot 
  • 1 turnip
  • Ginger powder
  • Coriander powder 
  • Olive oil
  • sea salt 

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven @205C
  2. Peel the carrot and turnip 
  3. Cut into small bite sized pieces any way you'd like (in rectangular fries shapes, small rounds, etc.)
  4. Place in a bowl and drizzle olive oil, sea salt, ginger and coriander 
  5. Place the baking sheet on a baking tray, spread the veggies out evenly and bake way for about 25mins (check at 15-20minutes based on how thinly you cut your veggies)

For the Rice Noodles,

  • 80-100g rice noodles 

Method for the rice noodles,

  1. In a pot, place cold water with a dash of salt and bring to boil
  2. While waiting for the water to boil, dip your rice noodles in cold water for about 5-10 minutes
  3. Once the water is boiling, remove the rice noodles from the cold water and add them to the boiling water; let cook for 5 minutes (or check your rice noodle package in case it indicates otherwise)
  4. CAREFUL! when you place the rice noodles, usually a white foam will form and build up. You need to blow on it continuously to prevent it from spilling everywhere. Keep a good eye on your pot, don't just throw in your soba noodles and leave them. 
  5. At 5 minutes precisely, rid the noodles of the water in the pot, and place noodles back into the now empty pot. 
  6. NOTE: you could substitute rice noodles for soba noodles or any other pasta, just be sure to check the instructions with regards to the time it needs to boil/cook. 

For the toppings,

  • Fresh coriander
  • Herb tofu (or smoked salmon or grilled chicken or white fish, anything goes)
  • Mix of seeds 

Method

  1. For the herb tofu drizzle lemon, sesame oil, and tamari (gluten free soy sauce or just regular soy sauce if you don't have tamari)
  2. For the chicken, I advise you to simply bake it with some lemon, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and salt ( because you'll then add some soy sauce, olive oil or sesame oil for flavor)
