Posh Pot Noodles

Posh Pot Noodles


  • Pyrex pot with a lid
  • Handful of dried noodles
  • Handful of bean sprouts
  • Handful of shredded greens
  • 1 spring onion finely sliced
  • Handful of cooked chicken
  • 1 tsp chopped coriander
  • 1 tsp vegetable stock powder
  • 1 tsp of curry paste

Method:
Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions, once cooked, drain and place in the bottom of the jar and leave to cool.

Whilst the noodles are cooling, mix together the stock powder and curry paste.  When the noodles are cool spoon the paste over the top of them and then top with the cooked chicken, bean sprouts, shredded greens, spring onion and coriander.  



Close the lid and store in the fridge. To serve, boil a kettle and then fill the jar until the contents are covered, seal the lid and leave for 2 minutes.  Once ready, open the jar and give the contents a good mix and enjoy.

This is a great alternative for lunches to take to work.  You can make several of these up at a time as they will keep for a few days in the fridge.  There are so many possibilities to try, basically use your favourite paste and other cooked meat or cooked prawns - remember, it must be cooked!!!  I used curry for this one as that's what I had in the fridge.  You can try soy sauce, hot sauce, miso paste, umami paste, the list is endless, there are so many varieties that come in handy sachets that you can choose from.  Mix it up and add your favourite veggies, I added a handful of chopped chilli to this as I do like a kick.

Be warned, this can get messy to eat so have a napkin to hand and watch the dribbles!
