What? A recipe for 2-minute noodles? This is getting ridiculous. Nope, I'm really not claiming to have invented the 2-minute noodles... but this is something that kids eat and miss; and parents miss because it's a quick and easy tummy-filler.
First up, you need noodles. Chang's Long Life Noodles (with 4 dried noodle cakes inside) contain wheat flour, water and salt. Or, you could buy Woolworth's Homebrand 2-minute Noodles and throw out the flavour sachet. No, don't even give it away! It's evil, chuck it! If you are Gluten-Free, then there are lots brands of Rice Noodles that contain nothing but rice and water.
- Vegetable Stock Concentrate
- Garlic Powder
- Low chemical vegetables
- In a medium saucepan, add water according to packet instructions
- Add about 1 tab Vege Stock Concentrate and combine well
- When broth is boiling, add how ever many Noodle Cakes you'll need (I just used 3 for 4 kids)
- If you'd like to, add a few vegetables to be cooked with the noodles or just leave it as is
- Add a shake of Garlic Powder if you'd like
- When noodles are cooked, drain the broth into a jug of some sort
- Serve noodles in a bowl and add as much broth as the kids would like.
- Don't add any stock, cook the Noodles just in water and don't reserve the broth
- Sprinkle noodles with a little oil and Garlic Powder
They sat there at the kitchen bench and slurped their noodles down. Maybe next time I'll give the chop sticks to slow them down bit. Ms D wanted a bit more broth to make it look "a bit more Asian-y". Riiiiggght. Whatever works. Mr JA needed no broth because he couldn't handle both noodles and broth.
here's another recipe that might benefit form a little of Sandra's No-Tomato Sauce.
