How To Make A Pot Noodle Taste Better

The most delicious ideas for what to add to a Pot Noodle

Add a serving of protein to your pot noodles, like grilled prawns, shredded chicken, or seafood sticks, if you just need the quick fix. Use vegetables like mushrooms, beansprouts, peas, grated carrot, and chopped red onion to move a little closer to your 5-a-day goal.

Adding an egg can also be very effective; you can use either a chopped boiled egg or a crispy fried egg.

Additionally, you may wish to enhance the flavor by adding hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, or your preferred fresh herbs, such as coriander.

Before we go through the entire list of suggestions, keep in mind that when it comes to selecting your toppings, common sense is a good guide. You should also think about the kind of pot noodles you’re going to make and which of the options will work best for that.

For example, the Chinese Chow Mein Pot Noodle is ideal served with Asian-inspired toppings like pak choy and beansprouts. The MacBook

Fill and put on the kettle

It goes without saying that hot water is needed to hydrate the noodles and other goodies in the pot. Normally, you would use a kettle filled to the very minimum for this, but if you really wanted to wash something else, you could try heating up a large (microwaveable) cup of water in the microwave for a short while (be careful how long you nuke it!). However, isn’t that something that nobody actually does?

Peel off the foil lid

You can now get your pot ready for the imminent dousing while the water is heating up. First, you must use the foil tab that protrudes to peel off the foil lid. Sometimes Pot Noddle is promoting a different flavor (has anyone ever seen the Brazilian BBQ Steak flavor that was promoted for the World Cup in June 2014 and is still printed on the foil lid underside in December 2014?). Other times it’s a contest with the words “Youve Won!” printed on the inside of the lid (the outside of the pot should give you a clue there’s a competition). Throw away the foil lid in your trash if there isn’t a promotion or if you didn’t win the competition.

I prefer to remove the entire foil lid from the pot because occasionally a few pieces may stick to the edge, so I remove those very carefully. Yes, this may be the first place you mess up because pulling on the foil remnants too forcefully could send the contents of the pot flying! But at least when it’s still dry, cleanup isn’t too difficult (you already have it on the dining tray, remember?).
