With the weather improving and lockdown measures lifting we are pleased to suggest a recipe we think you will find perfect for outdoor entertaining that is fresh, seasonal and easy to prepare. Ideal for a sunny evening in the garden with friends and plenty of chilled drinks! Soba noodles are a type of Japanese noodle that have an earthy and nutty taste. They are now available in most supermarkets although you could use egg noodles instead. Maple syrup can be expensive so maple flavoured syrup could be used as a replacement.
Soya beans can be easily found in the frozen vegetable section of most supermarkets.
