I love cooking, especially now i am in my student house. I have plenty more freedom in deciding what i eat, when i eat and how healthy i want to be. I won’t deny that the week i moved in involved me baking up a storm to get over my fears for starting medical school. But now i have become a busy student i am really beginning to focus on cooking and developing healthy but quick meals i can enjoy after uni.
I have always loved Super Noodles, they are always my weakness when i go out for food when I am feeling hungry or just plain lazy. So i have a few packets in my cupboard as incase of emergency staples. Alas, having them in my cupboard and knowing how cheap they can be when you buy own brand packets, i was curious to see if i could make the Super Noodle gourmet. This is what i came up with.
This is a chicken noodle soup-ish recipe, containing so much veg! It was cheap, really filling and made me feel good about my eating even though it contained Super Noodles. This recipe is a great recipe for a lone soldier (student) and can be made as a big batch to serve to multiple people.
Give this recipe a try and tell me what you could think. You could change up the Super Noodle flavour for some variety, the pulled pork or bacon flavours would go great with a pork meatball or chopped pork chunks.
Student Chicken Noodle Broth (For One)
- 1 packet of SuperNoodles (or the supermarket equivalent if your cheap)
- Handful of Frozen green beans diced
- Quarter of broccoli
- 1 baby corn, sliced thinly
- Handful of diced carrot
- Splash of Soy Sauce
- 1/4 onion, diced
- Chicken, cooked
- In a saucepan, take the seasoning sachet from the noodles into a pan with about 3cups of water. Add all the broccoli into the pan.
- After 3-4 minutes add the remaining veg and a splash of soy sauce (i was generous, but i love soy sauce!)
- After another two minutes, add the noodles and cook to packet instructions.
- Add cooked chicken, either warmed in a pan or in the microwave and serve!
NB: I used a soy sauce marinated and floured chicken i had cooked for another dish a few days before, had some left over chicken so used that. But normal chicken works equally as great.
