2-Minute Noodles


2-Minute Noodles


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. 

Ingredient options:
Method:
  •  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.  
OR
  • 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
Verdict:
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.

Sandra's No-Tomato Sauce

I have been using this all over the place...  and a bit like the Deli Chicken,  it has helped save Failsafe cooking all over again.  People on the facebook Failsafe pages are talking about it,  it has been translated into Thermomix-ese on the "Something From Nothing" page and here's mine.

Oh,  but first,  here's --->  Sandra's original.



Ingredients :

1 tin Red Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed150g Pear, about 2 large halves1 teaspoon Citric Acid1/4 cup (50g) Brown Sugar1 teaspoon Salt2 medium Carrots*, peeled and roughly chopped 1 stick Celery, roughly chopped4 Spring onions roughly chopped3-4 cloves of garlic1/2 cup WaterMethod:
Add all ingredients, except water, to TMX and pulverise on Speed 8 for about 5-8 secondsAdd waterWith MC in, cook for 25minutes,  Speed 3,  100ºC Purée by gradually increasing to Speed 9 for about 15 seconds*Moderate Salicylates

Verdict:  When I first tasted this I thought....    >.<  ewwww!...  but then I remembered I'd just ta…

Real Deli Chicken

The internet community is amazing, isn't it?  I have been a part of special interest forums (infertility, breastfeeding, homebirth, parenting, Thermomix, Failsafe diet) and I love that there's always someone out there with the information you need.  This recipe is exactly that.  On the 'Beyond Failsafe - Biomedical Treatment for Food Intolerances' facebook group, one person asked for some 'chicken-y school lunch ideas'.  Along came Meredith H. with her very simple answer.  She soaks chicken in brine,  poaches it...  and as easy as that you have a very commercial-tasting 'Deli Chicken' with no cruddy ingredients what-so-ever.  Her kids call it 'white bacon'...  we played around with 'chacon', 'bicken'...  and the winner is Real Deli Chicken.

Yorkshire Pudding

Mr frillipants' mum gave me this recipe, which really is the easiest-peasiest thing ever.

I am in the habit of making this with most roasts now, whether it's red or white meats, and it tastes so yummy with the meat and roasted veggies.  The recipe that I have says cooking time is 40-50 minutes,  which is seriously wrong. No idea where they got that? What I normally do is, when I have taken the cooked meat out of the oven to rest, and the veggies are still cooking, I put my 12-hole muffin tray in to start heating up.  I've already put a tiny dribble of a failsafe oil into each cup.  After a few minutes, I take the hot muffin tray out and, working very quickly, I pour the batter into each cup to about 1/3 full.  This will fill all 12 cups, giving the frillipantii 2 each... because we're greedy-gubbinses when it comes to Yorkshire Puddingses.
