  • 1 pack dried buckwheat noodles about 250 g
  • 2 ½ tablespoon sunflower oil
  • ½ lb green onions white and green parts, trimmed and cut to the diagonal into 1 ¼-inches long (about 225 g/2 cups or 16-18)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic crushed 1 clove
  • 2- inch ginger fresh, peeled and grated
  • 2 red chiles or pinch of Cayenne pepper
  • 1 ⅔ cup shelled edamame frozen, blanched for 3 minutes, refreshed (about 250 g)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons sesame seeds a mix of black and white
  • ¼ cup tamari
  • 2 tablespoons mirin Notes
  • 1 cup cilantro coarsely chopped
  • 1 lemon zest finely grated and then cut into slices
  • Salt to taste


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook the noodles as instructed on the package (about 5 minutes), until al dente. Drain well, rinse under lukewarm water, and set aside in a large bowl with 1 ½ teaspoon of sunflower oil stirred through. Cover the bowl and set aside somewhere warm.
  • Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons sunflower oil in a large wok or sauté pan over high heat. Add the green onions, garlic, ginger, and chiles and cook for 2 to 3 minutes over high heat, stirring frequently, until the onions soften a little. Add the edamame and heat them for about 30 seconds.
  • Give the noodles a quick rinse under warm water two to three times if they have become stuck together and then, when drained, pour the contents of the wok over them, followed by the sesame oil, sesame seeds, tamari, vinegar, cilantro, and ⅓ teaspoon salt. Stir well, sprinkle the lemon zest over the top, and serve immediately, with the slices alongside.


You can swap the mirin for 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 1 teaspoon maple syrup or rice vinegar.
