I am so bored of lunches eaten at my desk, another cardboard sandwich from the Co-op hastily stuffed down whilst working on something or other. Last night, I thought about what I really wanted to eat. I love ramen noodle soup and haven’t had any for eons. I could eat it every day. Plain-ish, sure, but tasty and sustaining. And, as it turns out, super-easy to make in the hovel of a kitchen we have at work.
You will need
- One packet of straight-to-wok noodles (I used Amoy fine noodles)
- Chicken stock powder (I used Knorr reduced-salt)
- Two spring onions
- Cooked chicken (optional)
- Boiling water
- Cut up the spring onion into small slices. Cut on the diagonal if you’re feeling fancy!
- Add to a large soup bowl.
- Add the noodles.
- Add a dessert spoon of chicken powder to the bowl and pour over a cup’s worth of boiling water fresh from the kettle.
- Tear up some of your chicken and add to the bowl.
- Add some soy sauce if you have any to hand, or some pepper, or just enjoy as is.
Tasty, quick, hot and fresher than those supermarket sandwiches. You could add chillis or something, if that is your bag, too. I’m going to keep a stash of noodles in my drawer for lunch all the time! My colleagues were envious.
