Am going to try this the the kids at school!
Instant noodles needn't be the processed stuff. With a bit of imagination, these chorizo and tomato instant noodles in a pot are just as quick and just as super.Rate this recipe:
- 1-2 minutes
- 5-6 minutes
- * 1 nest of standard, thin, quick-cook egg noodles
- * About 30g chorizo, chopped
- * 3-4 spring onions, finely sliced
- * ½ tsp fennel seeds, lightly crushed
- * 100ml tomato passata
- * 3-4 shredded basil leaves
- * Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1. Put the chorizo, onions and fennel into a heatproof pot with the noodles. Season the passata well, add the basil, and put in a small jar separately. When ready to eat, pour boiling water over the noodles to just cover, add the passata and leave for 5-6 minutes. Stir and eat.
I did this the other day with rice noodles...just wonderful!
mmmmmmmmmmm had this a few times and the other recipes, but i have been trying my own , i just had a beef and tomato easy to do , in one pot put 1 nest of noddles , 1/4 of a beef stock cube ,1 tsp veg bouillon powder, a couple slices of last night beef from the roast, 2 or 3 tablespoons of left over peas. then in the second pot , 100ml of left over gravy (or just what you have left and top up to 100ml with water) 2 tbp of tom ketchup , 1tbp of tom puree ,1 tbp of dark soy , couple of dashes of tapasco or alittle crushed chill or non if you dont like heat!! salt pepper. make as normal and you have a tasty beef and tom homemade pot noddle using the left overs from a sunday lunch
For my instant noodles I use protein shakers to hold them (http://www.proteinstop.co.uk/ProductPage/No-Page/74/Reflex-Shaker.asp?utm_source=googlebase&utm_medium=cpc). Perfect size and they are robust enough to deal with the boiling water. Great lunch every time.
Tried it, thought it was very good, but that there were so many more possibilities with this recipe. Today, I'm having a thai prawn green curry noodle pot: nest of noodles, a couple of grinds of pepper and salt, cooked prawns, canned bamboo shoots, then 80mL coconut milk + 20 mL green curry paste in the separate container to add after the noodles etc. have cooked. Delish! Homemade noodle pots will be in my lunchbox at least once a week. Thanks for the fantastic idea!
After seeing this last night, I made it today using chopped chicken breasts, spring onions, mushrooms and thinly sliced baby lettuce - it was amazing. You've just transformed my workday lunchbox!
We've not tried it out yet but have found some suitable containers. Our local department store had tonnes of them but Amazon stock them too. They are made by a company called Lock and Lock.
dparvin - try the plastic soup tubs (find the soup in chilled section in supermarket) as they have lids, that's my plan :-)
Really want to try this, cant find the empty pots anywhere though!
This is such a good idea and I'll definitely be trying it out...
