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.

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!

dparvin - try the plastic soup tubs (find the soup in chilled section in supermarket) as they have lids, that's my plan :-)
