Cooking with Matthew

Hello there, and welcome back to the award winning show Cooking with Matthew. Feedback from you over our last recipe was overwhelming, it seems that many of you are now having a go in the kitchen. Excellent!

After a week of toast, we thought you might be ready to try something new. So today we are going to try a classic 1950's Asian dish, Noodles.

Noodles (Serves One)
Noodles (instant)

[Handy Tip: If you shop around you can often find a handy "Noodles and Flavouring combo pack" - this saves time and money!]

1. Bring water to boil.
[Environmental tip: Boiling the water in a jug uses less power than bringing it to boil on the stove top - come on guys, save the world!]
2. Add noodles and water together in a pot on the stove and bring back to boil.
3. Once boiling, reduce the heat and simmer for two minutes.
4. Add flavouring and drain.
[Save that delicious broth, we will use it again in another recipe]
5. Enjoy!
