Friends! I have finally joined the Reels-family! And I think I like them. Not sure what I’m talking about? Well, I have included my reels video for you below. Hit that play button.
I think this is such a cool feature on Instagram, especially for someone like me who often wants to share a simple recipe, easily. Time does not always permit setting up the video camera, setting up the tripod, shooting from different angles, downloading and then editing a video. Don’t get me wrong, there is definitely room for that, and I am planning to do many of these in the near future. However, for now, I am happy to play with the reels application. And I shall be working on my skills to make my next reel better than the current.
But, enough about the reel and more about the content of the reel: INSTANT NOODLE GLOW UP – because cooking instant noodles according to the package instructions can be boring and often too light for a hearty meal.
I think I have spoken about my love/hate relationship with instant noodles on Instagram before. There are brands which many of us are familiar with that make instant noodles one of the easiest (and cheapest) meals/snacks around. I don’t necessarily have a problem with the noodles as much as I do with the seasoning packet that accompanies these noodles. In most cases, the contents of those packets do not contain much (dare I say any) nutritional value, and a lot of MSG for that matter!
There are however many great brands of instant noodles with real (quick) ingredients. I have found a brand that uses organic brown rice flour for their noodles, and dried vegetables with a few spices that many of us should have in our pantry for the spice/soup packet. No codes, no colourants, no MSG. I encourage you to read your labels and ingredients.
For this easy meal, I did not use the soup packet that came with my brown rice noodles. (Since those ingredients are not bad, I will use this to flavour other meals in the near future). Instead I made a creamy Asian/Middle Eastern sauce for my noodles. It is SO easy and SO yummy. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
