100ml red wine vinegar
50g caster sugar
3 small turnips (about 200g), very thinly sliced
1 red onion, very thinly sliced into rings
2 tsp tamari or soy sauce
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
200g soba noodles
10cm piece cucumber, halved, deseeded and sliced
½ x 50g pack Good4U super sprouts
2 tsp sesame seeds, toasted
handful coriander leaves
1. Gently heat the vinegar, sugar and a pinch of salt in a small pan, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Place the turnips and onion in a heatproof bowl and pour over the warm vinegar, then set aside to cool (this can be done the day before and left in the fridge, if liked).
2. Drain the vegetables, reserving 3 tbsp of the pickling liquid. Whisk the soy sauce and sesame oil into the reserved liquid to make a dressing.
3. Cook the soba noodles in a pan of boiling water for 5 minutes, then drain and cool. Toss the cooled noodles, pickled vegetables and dressing with the cucumber, sprouts, sesame seeds and coriander leaves before serving. SF
