Soba Noodle Salad with Rainbow Vegetables

I came home after a long day at work, all was dark - and look what Kev had rattled up for us! Fancy as anything, and he made it look so pretty! This was really refreshing, even on a cold frosty evening!

Soba Noodle Salad with Rainbow Vegetables a la Kev
(Serves 2)

250g soba noodles (or vegan noodles)
1/3 of a daikon, or 1 pak choi, finely sliced
1/2 small head of white cabbage, shredded
1 medium carrot, grated
Handful of radishes, thinly sliced
1 Spring onion, finely sliced
1 small handfull of sesame seeds

3 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tsp tamari or 2 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp agave syrup

- Prepare all the vegetables so you have them ready to toss in with the noodles.

- Then cook the noodles until soft.

- Whilst this is cooking, have all the ingredients for the dressing in a jar, give it a shake and set aside.

- Have all the vegetables in a frying pan and fry for a few minutes until they go slightly soft, and then add your noodles! Give it a good swirl before plating up.

- Pour over dressing and sprinkle over the sesame seeds - and you are done!

I hope you have had a great week so far! I myself have felt quite drained to say the least. But! College was fantastic this week and we made a modern line arrangement:

Today, the Scottish Norwegian Society had their annual Christmas bazaar and it was a lot of fun! I have been to this once before and to get to have open-style sandwiches, playing the tombola and buying Norwegian sweets is always a hit!

Everyone was so lovely - and a few of my friends were there and I got talking to some new friendly faces too!

I wont Twist chocolate at the tombola. This is the kinda goodie bag where you find yourself fighting with family members over certain different ones. Dad and I would always go for the marzipan ones, but I must say the banana chocolate is amazing too! In fact - all of the chocolates are...
I also got a traditional marzipan pig, some floor wash (it's a Norway thing...), Norwegian lefser, christmas cookies and Kev got a small dose of his addiction - Norwegian Melkesjokolade! So a good day overall!
The weather was awful later on in the day though, so it's been filled with Gilmore Girls, studying whilst listening to Kaizers Orchestra, Muse and Magnet, watching Firefly. Productive in its own sense one can say ;)
