1-2 chicken breasts
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 leek, finely sliced
2 bunches Pak Choy, roughly chopped
Handful shiitake mushrooms, roughly chopped
Handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped
Coconut oil
5-6 tbsp. rice vinegar
2 tbsp. sesame oil
Juice of 1 lime
1 packet soba noodles

Method:

  • In a small jug, mix together the rice vinegar, sesame oil and lime juice.  Taste, season and set aside.
  • Slice chicken breasts into 1-2cm chunks, then heat a little coconut oil in a wok or large frypan and stir-fry for a few minutes until chicken has browned a little and cooked through, then set aside.
  • Cook soba noodles according to packet directions while you prep your veg, then rinse and drain well.
  • Add a little extra coconut oil to the wok then add the garlic, leek and mushrooms and stir-fry for a couple of minutes until soft before adding the Pak Choy.  As the greens begin to wilt, add the chicken back to the wok, followed by the drained soba noodles.

  • Divide between two plates and sprinkle with fresh coriander.  Done!

LUXE / HEALTH miso salmon and soba noodles…

Salmon is undoubtedly one of the healthiest foods you can indulge in – it boosts brain health, supports healthy skin, hair and nails and research has even shown salmon to aid in the prevention of heart disease.  Winner, winner!

What I love about salmon too is that unlike other superfoods (I’m looking at you, kale!) – salmon is not only tasty, but versatile as well.  In our household, we do our best to support ‘meatless Mondays’ and whenever I manage to get to the fish market, this recipe is on regular rotation.

If you want a super healthy, super quick midweek meal then look no further.  My miso salmon will have you salivating!

LUXE / HEALTH Miso Salmon with Soba Noodles

Ingredients:

2 skinless, boneless salmon fillets
1/4 cup white miso
1/3 cup mirin
1 bunch broccolini, trimmed and halved
6-8 spring onions (white bits only), trimmed and cut into thirds
1 portion soba noodles
Handful of sesame seeds, toasted
Freshly cracked black pepper
Olive oil

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 200C.
  • In a shallow bowl, whisk together miso paste and mirin, then place salmon fillets in the marinade and let sit for 15-20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prep your vegetables and pop into a baking tray (I find a disposable foil one works perfectly!)
  • Toss the broccolini and spring onions in a little olive oil, then place the salmon amongst the vegetables and place in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • After 5-10 minutes, remove the bushy ends of the broccolini from the oven as they will start to crisp up.
  • Cook the soba noodles according to packet directions (around 4 minutes), drain and set aside.
  • Once the salmon is ready and cooked to your liking, pile a bowl high with soba noodles, broccolini, spring onions and salmon, then sprinkle generously with toasted sesame seeds and freshly cracked pepper.
