I bought 10 packets of Noodles out in Tesco earlier to do me for the week. Well, I won't be eating them every day like, but I'll probably have a packet of them one or two, maybe three, nights.

What can I add to them to spice them up? I bought three Curry, Three Chicken and Four Chow Mein flavours.

Can I just throw in some vegetables and perhaps some garlic puree to make a cheap chinese meal out of them?

You can do all sorts - chuck in sweetcorn and mushrooms and then serve with a slug of soy sauce - simmer in some chilli oil (sometimes it comes in the pack) and then toss through shredded carrot and sesame seeds, soften quickly in hot water and then flash fry (if you can apply that term to super noodles!) with onion, garlic and ginger - they'll all taste fine!

As above, you can add almost anything. If you don't want to use fresh ginger & garlic then you can get garlic & ginger pastes which work well in stirfrys/noodles.

Peppers, onion, carrot are staples and you could also use baby corn, been sprouts, mange toute and even broccoli. We have a selection of frozen veg which do come in handy for late night stirfrys.

Chicken stock is good to have around. We now use the knorr powdered tub so you can put in as little or as much as you want.

And you need the essentials such as soy, fish sauce, seasame oil, chilli sauce. Not all for the same dish but if you want it more thai style you may need the seasame and some cocunut.


I do this with the plain egg or rice noodles. Wouldn't think of buying flavoured noodles when you can knock it up easily. Home pot noodles

Sprinkle with some toasted chopped nuts, chopped spring onion and a splash of soy sauce. Mmmmm!

Add a dash of sesame oil and some crushed red pepper.

Thanks guys.

Today I had curry noodles for lunch and used some left over chicken in them with some carrots, peas and brocolli. It was actually very tasty and a change from the usual bland flavor that you get from noodles!

Sounds delicious!

A good dressing for noodles is some balsamic vinegar,olive oil and dijon mustard with a hint of chilli and lemongrass.
