You could buy a freeze dried pot noodle in a plastic cup in the supermarket OR you could make your own for less than 50c per portion.
My version is far more nutritious, there is less salt in it and the fresh vegetables add a real crunch.
Ingredients (per person)
- 2 spring onions
- 1 peeled, topped and tailed carrot
- 1 teaspoon ginger & garlic paste
- 1 teaspoon dark soy sauce
- Cupful vermicelli rice noodles
- Handful frozen sweetcorn
- Handful frozen peas
- Boiling water
Boil a kettle of water. Peel and chop the spring onions. Grate the carrot into a chunky shred.
Put the ginger and garlic paste into a large jar, followed by the soy sauce, noodles, peas, sweetcorn and grated carrot. Once the kettle has boiled pour over with hot water up to 3/4 level. Stir well.
Loosely cover the jar using the lid for 30 seconds. If you wanted to add protein you could add in shredded omelette, leftover roast chicken, ham, fresh beans etc at this point. Serve & enjoy.
