  • 3 tbsp toasted white sesame seeds

  • ½ tsp sesame oil

 

Preparation:

  2. Add the cooled sesame seeds with the remaining dressing ingredients into a blender, and blend for 2 minutes until smooth.

 

Poke Ingredients:

  • 80g firm tofu, chopped into 1cm squares
  • 25g cucumber
  • 25g avocado

  • 25g edamame beans (peeled and frozen is fine)

  3. Prepare the salad ingredients by washing, then drying in a colander.
  4. Mix the drained tofu with 1/3 of the Goma dressing and set aside for 5 minutes.
  5. Place the dried spinach and rocket mixed leaf salad into a bowl.
  6. Slice the avocado and cucumber into cubes, halve the cherry tomatoes, and add them, along with the cooled edamame beans to the bowl.
