Ingredients

  • 1 packet of Dried Konyaku Shirataki Noodles
  • 160g of Carrot, cut into long thin strips
  • 80g of French beans, cut into 2-3cm long
  • 10g of dried Hijiki seaweed
  • A pinch of Toasted Sesame Seeds

  • 2 tbsp Mirin
  • 1 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 Muscovado Sugar
  • -------
  • -------
  • For the Final Seasoning**:
  • 1 tbsp Sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp Soy sauce (Tamari soy sauce for gluten free option)
  • 1 tsp Sesame seeds ground

Key info

  • Prep: 30 mins
  • Cooking time: 10 mins
  • Serves: Four as a side dish
  • Rating: Easy

Instructions

1 Soak dried Hijiki in cold water for 3-4 hours (or follow the instruction on product)

2 Drain well, place in a saucepan and use a high heat to remove the moisture, but be careful not to burn

3 Add Hijiki seasoning* and bring to the boil. Reduce heat then simmer for 15-20 minutes

4 Prepare the ‘DRIED KONYAKU’ as instructed on the packet

5 Blanch or steam Carrots and French beans, drain well

6 Place all the ingredients and seasoning** into a mixing bowl

7 Serve onto 4 plates and sprinkle Toasted Sesame seeds on top.


Tip: Add chopped fresh chilli at FINAL STEP 3, if you would like to add a kick

Any leftover prepared Hijiki can be kept for a week in the fridge so I would recommend you make double or triple this amount. Enjoy with just a bowl of rice.
