Just like the classic pot noodle, all you need to do here is add hot water and stir.  Unlike the classic, it’s bursting with vitamins and minerals, and provides a balanced meal on-the-run.

Having researched the origins of the pot noodle, it was invented in Japan following food shortages after WW2. Now, Golden Wonder alone sells 4 pots every second in the UK, that’s 175 million a year.  In fact, we can even now buy pot noodles that aren’t noodles at all.  Checking out the ingredients on one of those brands, I find 1.8% vegetable content (dried), and the following chemicals – calcium hydroxide, hydroxyl propyl distarch phosphate, sodium5-inosinate, sodium5-guanylate and silicon dioxide.  It also included maltodextrin – and they charge £2.99 per pot.

For the investment of 10 minutes preparation the night before, simply chopping up a few vegetables whilst your noodles are soaking, you’ll have a delicious, fresh healthy option waiting in the fridge for you.  I have given some ideas of vegetables, please feel free to add your own.

This fresh version works out around £1.50. And remember, if you use a glass jar, it will be very hot, please take care and protect your hands.
