It’s cold, damp, goodness knows what happened to Spring. We need warm comforting food like a quick homemade pot noodle; the next in my series on Real Fast Food.
This week I’ve taken a real step away from my comfort zone and recorded this recipe in real-time at my kitchen table. I’ve uploaded it to YouTube so that you can see that I’m not fibbing when it comes to homemade fast food.
At less than 50c per portion, per adult, quick homemade pot noodle is a fantastic value-for-money alternative to dialling the take away. There is also no fat, whatsoever in this recipe. If you leave out the soy sauce it is also gluten free.
