some Japanese salad veg this summer. In fact, it's been a bumper harvest and my shiso and mizuna just keep on giving! So here's a healthy salad using these two lovely leaves and some other veg topped off with some edamame - it's quick, nutricious and just the thing for a warm summer evening when you want something easy and light on your tummy. The recipe is just below . If you'd like to watch the youtube tutorial, you can find it by clicking Shiso and Mizuna salad or just scroll to the bottom of the page.


Shiso and Mizuna salad.

ingredients: (serves 2)

20g shiso leaves

20g mizuna leaves

140g baby tomatoes

100g mushrooms

50g frozen eda mame


how to: wash the leaves well and cut or tear them roughly, cut the mushrooms into halves or quarters depending on the size, cook the eda mame in salted water for 3 mins and drain. assemble the ingredients in a salad bowl and mix. drizzle with a vinaigrette or other salad dressing. (if you can't find mizuna, you can try rocket as a substitute although it is more strongly flavoured.)
