This plant-powered salad is rich in essential vitamins and minerals to help support a healthy immune system.

The soba noodle base adds quality carbohydrate to help support energy levels, mixed in with mountains of green vegetables rich in vitamin C, E and A to support vital cellular functions of the immune response. Choosing tofu as the key protein keeps the salad vegan-suitable, but also provides a hefty serving of iron and zinc. Tofu is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the market, making it a great choice when you want to give your body some extra love and care.

3. In a large serving bowl, combine the wombok, edamame beans, spring onion, shredded seaweed and sesame seeds. Add noodles and mix well to combine, ensuring the noodles are well-dispersed through the salad.

Want to make it gluten free? Simply substitute the soba noodles for vermicelli noodles and ensure you are cooking with a gluten-free soy sauce.
