Two minute noodles are a great quick fix. Noodles are easy to make. I toss season sachet in the bin and create my own seasoning depending on what I feel like on the day and what is available. (For Ramen Noodles see Ramen Noodle Post they are a different type but very similar noodle)
Here are some different ways to make them.
Hubby doesn’t like the stock so he drains his but for me I love it as it’s where all the flavour is and I like a noodle soup with added extras.
I simply boil the kettle and pour hot water over noodles until they are submerged. I add my own spices or herb flavourings or toppings. I cook mine for 2 minutes in the microwave.
Hubby doesn’t cook his in microwave so he covers the bowl and just has the boiling water on top of the noodles then drains them and adds whatever else to it but cooks the toppings in microwave without the noodles in separate bowl then adds to the noodles when done..
I love pho soup and I found in Asian shop Pho Gai stock for soup so I made it today. Its a one pot dish. In Thai Cooking Gai = Chicken and Pho is pronounced phur.
Ingredients serves 2
1 Pho Gai Stock Cube
3 Cups Water
1 Handful of each : Vegepod Asian Greens Tatsoi, Bok Choy,
1 Green Shallots,
1 handful of each from vegepod/herb pot: Basil, Mint, Parsley.
2 chicken breast,
1/2 cake vermicelli noodles cooked,
2 nori sheet
Place chicken and stock in water in saucepan and simmer until chicken almost cooked
then add remaining ingredients except herbs and nori to pot. Simmer for 1-2 minutes
to lightly cook the greens. Refresh Vermicelli in warm water in a separate bowl and add
to serving bowl in middle. Top with remaining ingredients and herbs.
Here i am enjoying this bowl of chicken noodle soup when the weather is a boiling hot 30*c day outside. I used pho gai stock cube, 2 min wholegrain noodles without seasoning sachet, fresh mint basil coriander from herb pots and aldi chicken deli meat. Soo good
