It’s hard not love noodles of any kind, whether they’re skinny like vermicelli or plump like udon, irrespective of the ingredient they’re made of, such as wheat, rice, buckwheat, quinoa or even healthy kelp from the ocean. But here’s how you can make the best of this easy-to-cook kitchen staple, and it doesn’t have to be prepared only in an Asian style recipe.
Simply experiment with different elements such as fresh vegetables, herbs and of course, some protein of your choice, and add dipping sauces and spices to create a healthy, often portable and super refreshing meal that gives you plenty of energy and satisfies even the pickiest palate. All you have to do is chill it before you eat it.
Helpful Tip: Instead of chilling noodles in the fridge where they might clump together and taste awful, not to mention the terrible texture of gunky noodles, try using an ice bath to float the final product in a metal bowl. Prepare to be amazed with the results. You might have stumbled upon just the thing to make muggy, warm days a bit more bearable.
