HOMEMADE INSTANT NOODLES
Curated by Keir (Lead Guide)
Prep Time: 5 - 10 minutes depending on optional ingredients
Cook Time: 5 minutes
1 large serving or 2 small
Would store well in a container in the refrigerator for 2 - 3 days
Boil. Heat approx one litre of water in a saucepan on the stove-top, once it comes to a rolling boil, add the noodles. Cook the noodles for 3 minutes, or until the noodles reach desired texture, if you are adding the peas, add them in the final minute of cooking.
Mix. In a separate vessel (I use a ramekin) dissolve the Better than Bouillon in approx ¼ cup of water taken from the boiling pot, and stir in the curry powder.
Drain, and Combine. Completely drain the water from the noodles (option to save the stock water and re-add later), then stir in the curry stock mix.
Notes: You can definitely add to this recipe by including carrot, mushrooms (like shiitake), green onions, tofu pieces, roast chicken pieces etc... the opportunities are endless.
Look for noodles that don't contain egg. Tuf Brand Stir Fry Chow Mein noodles (found at Creekside Market, Whistler) contain just three simple ingredients- wheat flour, water and salt.
If adding vegetables such as carrot, mushroom, green onions and other vegetables you can opt for unwrapped and plastic-free fresh vegetables from markets, CSA programs and even some supermarkets.
Another great way to ensure you're using seasonal produce is to subscribe to a CSA Box with a local farm and structure your meals around the seasonal produce you've received that week!
