    Smashed cucumber with ginger and chilli oil

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 15 minutes, plus standing
    • Cooking time: 0 minutes
    • Total time: 15 minutes, plus standing

    Serves: 4 as a side

    Ingredients

    1 cucumber
    ½ tsp salt
    1 tsp finely grated fresh root ginger
    2 tbsp chilli oil
    2 tsp honey
    2 tsp light soy sauce
    2 tbsp Japanese rice vinegar

    Method

    1. Rinse and dry the cucumber and cut off the very ends. Lay it down flat on a chopping board and use a rolling pin to bash the cucumber along its length, crushing and splitting it a little. Now roughly chop the cucumber and toss with the salt. Transfer to a colander in the sink and leave for 20 minutes.

    2. Combine all the remaining ingredients in a serving bowl. Add the cucumber and toss through to mix.
