Instant noodles are quick and easy, usually requiring little to no preparation or effort. This makes them a great go-to choice for long days, late nights or no-fuss lunches. Although flavoured noodles taste good on their own, you can add even more flavour with a few simple additions. Keep reading to find out how to make fast and simple meals with instant noodles.
Cooking With Instant Noodles
Thanks to their ability to cook in the microwave or on the stovetop in just a few minutes, instant noodles offer a far simpler alternative to pasta or rice. You can turn noodles from a rather dull instant meal to something delicious and even healthy with a few tweaks. Here are some of our favourite meal ideas using noodles.
A simple stir fry can be cooked up while your noodles are cooking. Choose a pre-packed stir fry mix for even more convenience or chop up your favourite vegetables along with soy mince, chicken or beef. Once the stir fry and noodles are cooked, toss with a bit of soy sauce or other seasoning and serve. You can also make this ahead and enjoy it for lunch the next day.
Noodles are a great addition to soup. Try an Asian style soup or any other clear soup. The best thing about this type of dish is that you don’t have to bother cooking the noodles separately. Instead, wait until the soup is close to done and then add the dried noodles directly into the pot. The noodles will cook into the soup, absorbing all of the flavours.
Salad may not be the first thing you think of when making noodles. Cook the noodles (with seasoning or without) and allow to cool. While you are cooling the noodles, prepare finely chopped or sliced vegetables, cooked chicken, meat or even tuna, and a salad dressing of your choice. You can then combine all of the ingredients for a dish that is perfect for summer.
