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.

Tweeks:

here's another recipe that might benefit form a little of Sandra's No-Tomato Sauce.
