Tesco are now selling their own brand of instant noodles for 8p. Eight pence! Roughly converted into all the different currencies around the world, the price of this said snack is: 0 cents.
While most of us can stretch our wallets beyond the budget range of a supermarket’s own brand, let me just say that these Tesco noodles are darn right tasty, and are a slightly smaller portion (perfect) than regular, more familiar products.
Also, what I like about eating them is that there’s only one item of washing up: the bowl in which they’re made and consumed.
So, currently going down a storm in the Stack kitchen is the ‘Noodles with Anything Snack’. Here’s how it goes:
Crumble the pack of noodles into a bowl. Pour 200mls* of boiling water into the bowl and stir the sachet of flavouring that comes with the pack of noodles.
Place a square of kitchen towel over the bowl, put it in the microwave and nuke for one minute.
Nuke for another minute.
You’re done. Eat immediately with a splash of soy sauce or Thai sweet chilli (yum-oh).
Got any leftovers? Chicken, bacon, beef, pork, liver? Hell, there might be an herb lurking in the fridge too. Well don’t just sit there, chop ‘em up and mix them with the noodles.
Dee-licious. And simple. And quick. And no-washing up except for the bowl.
*I put in 300mls as I like a bit of sch-lurp with me noodle, and if you nuke the bowl for another 30secs/1min, the water dissolves anyway.
