Your perfect home-made 'pick-me-up'
Shop bought cup-a-soup is literally an industrial and, in my view, inedible product. It is indeed a practical dish to take to work or school and that is why I am giving you my home made version. It is nourishing, filling and super delicious. You can prepare and pack in the night before to grab in the morning. This way you know exactly what’s in your food. Just add hot boiling water and you are good to go. The nice thing about this recipe is that you can play with the ingredients and flavours, change it every time so you can create your own favourite version according to what you ave at home.
40 gr rice, bean or buckwheat noodles, cooked according to instructions on the package
1 carrot, grated or to julienne
1/3 cup frozen peas or edamame, defrosted
2 tbsp corn kernels
1/2 red pepper, cut into small cubes
1/2 spring onion, finely sliced
A small handful of fresh coriander leaves
A small handful of bean sprouts
Few slices of fresh chilli, if you like it spicy
Few cubes of tofu or few slices of cooked chicken breast
1 tsp Dashi powder
1 tsp miso or soy sauce
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp roast sesame oil
Other spices of your liking like 5 spices, chilli, cilli oil etc.
You will need a heat resistant container (glass, safe plastic or metal)
- In your container arrange layers of noodles, vegetables and finish off with the flavour ingredients and your protein. Leave enough space to pour over the boiling water.
- When you are ready to eat, pour over 250 ml boiling hot water, mix a little bit, let it absorb the flavours for 2-3 minutes and and enjoy.
