With a mandolin or potato peeler finely slice the cucumber and carrots into ribbons. Put into a bowl and marinate in mirin, brown rice vinegar, black onion seed and dill for at least 20 minutes.

Cut the watermelon into 3mm thin slices – don’t worry too much about all the seeds but try to remove the obvious ones.

Then slice the radishes, making them have a pink edge the whole way around.

In a dry frying pan toast the cashews on a low heat until they are just golden. You can crush half of them and keep half whole to add some different texture to the dish. In the mean time mix up the dressing in a jar.

Combine all the salad ingredients – then drizzle with dressing and then sprinkle with the sesame seeds, toasted cashews and coriander.

Serve with either warm or cold quinoa.

Asian Mixed Bean Salad

  • 100g sugar snap peas
  • 4g fresh dill
  • 1 sprig fresh mint
  • 160g black eyed beans (cooked and drained)
  • 1 tblspoon sesame seeds
  • coconut oil
  • Sliced chili for garnish.
  • Dressing:
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp sweet miso
  • 3 tbsp water

Pre-heat oven to 350 F.

Peal and dice the beetroot into 2 cm cubes. Toss in 1 tbsp of coconut oil and put into the oven for 30 minutes or until soft.

In the meantime boil a pan of water, once at a rolling boil drop the sugar snap peas and green beans for 1-2 minutes to blanch until soft but still with a crunch. Drain the water and put under cold running water for 1 minute to refresh them. Grate the carrot and roughly chop the herbs. Slice the beans and peas on a diagonal. Mix all together with fresh herbs, keeping enough aside to sprinkle over the top for garnish.

Take the beetroot out of the oven and put to one side to cool slightly.

To make the dressing mix all the dressing ingredients in either a blender or a hand whisk. The tahini will curdle slightly but just keep stirring and it will incorporate. To serve put a bed of salad with the rest of the ingredients in the bowl over the top and drizzle with dressing, sprinkle with remaining herbs and sliced chili.
