Metric Imperial


  • 1/3 lb buckwheat (soba) noodles
  • 2 cups frozen, shelled edamame beans
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 large carrot, julienned
  • 1 red bell pepper, julienned
  • 1 head of broccoli, broken into small florets, stems diced

  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich flavour)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot chili paste (like sambal oelek)


  1. In a saucepan, bring water to a boil over high heat and cook noodles according to package directions.
  2. About 4 minutes before the end of cooking, add the edamame beans. Drain and add the oil (to prevent the noodles from sticking together). Allow to cool.

  4. Put all the vinaigrette ingredients into a small container with a lid. Seal tightly and shake well.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
