Thermomix Easiest Fakeaway Noodles Recipe

Thermomix Easiest Fakeaway Noodles Recipe

This dish is a super-easy one perfect for those nights you really can’t be bothered cooking - that’s how easy it is! And the washing up couldn’t be more minimal (big plus for me). And frankly, it tastes exactly like the boxes of noodles commonly bought as takeaway… but without the price tag and crappy ingredients. Use whatever veggies you’ve got in the fridge, making this recipe not only easy, but frugal and waste free (plus you’re tailoring it to the veggies you like, not necessarily the ones I like!). You can also add cubed tofu, fish, prawns or really thinly sliced beef (rump steak would be my suggestion).

This recipe has been written to serve one, but can easily be scaled up to serve two (just double the ingredients, keep the method the same). For everyone out there cooking for one, I see you! And I think you’re going to love this recipe - no half cans leftover etc. Just tasty bowl food ready in less than 20 minutes. Here’s a quick video showing you just how easy it is!

Now to whip up this gem of a recipe you’re going to need one of our brand new Steaming Mats for Varoma, available exclusively from us…
