Why I Love This Recipe

Noodles usually come with a broth in a little packet. You don’t need this anymore. Put it away because Chef Cynthia is going to show you how to make totally awesome healthy 2-minute noodles.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 Tbsp Grated Ginger

1 tsp Sesame Seed Oil

3-4 Tbsps Soy Sauce

1-2 Tbsps Miso

1 packet Buckwheat-Wheat Noodles, or noodles of your choice

Salt, to taste

Black Pepper, to taste

Veggies of choice

½ cup Fried Shallots, for serving

2 Spring Onions (green part), finely sliced

Fresh Coriander, for serving


So, you start as you would normally do when you make noodles - fill in a pot with water and put it on medium-high heat. While you are waiting for the water to start boiling, you can add the ingredients for the broth. Start with grated ginger, sesame seed oil and soy sauce. Miso is that thing that will give a special flavour to your homemade broth. I usually start by adding one tablespoon at a time and letting it dissolve. Then I taste it and add more if I want my broth to get the depth of flavour I want.

When you are happy with how your wholefood, healthy broth tastes, add a pinch of salt and pepper together with your noodles and let them cook. In the meantime, prepare your veggies. You can add anything you have in your kitchen. My favourites are carrots, capsicums, baby corn, spinach, mushrooms, pumpkin, broccoli, sweet potato, kale, zucchini…

Now comes a crucial point - you don’t want to boil the veggies completely, so we need to wait for that moment when noodles are just about to be cooked. That is when you add your veggies and let everything cook for a couple of more minutes until the noodles are cooked.

Your wholefood, healthy 2-minute noodles and ready but not ready yet. Serve them into a bowl and pimp them up with some beautifully fried shallots, fresh and finely sliced spring onion, and fragrant coriander. Trust me, fresh herbs are your best friends. They lift up flavours and are one of the building blocks of food (salt is the other one, remember).
