If you’ve survived more then a few weeks on this Earth, I’m sure you would have, at some point, consumed some food. Along with oxygen, water, love, and a comfortable pair of shoes, food is critical for our survival.
Presumably if you, like me, are relatively well off (I mean in the grand scheme of things – you have the internet after all), then food may not seem as important for survival as other things. When you sit down to lunch, you don’t say: “Gad, I must eat this, lest I perish”, you’re far more likely to just eat up, and then maybe say “I wonder if I should have had the chicken instead…”
Food is a social cornerstone of our society. Unlike other bodily functions which must be executed in privacy, eating food is almost always a public affair. Whenever possible we dine with company, only alone when we need to.
Where is my point leading?
Nowhere in particular, but I will leave you with this recipe for a delicious and novel snack which is cheap, healthy and fun to make.
Two Minute Noodle Omelet
1 packet of two minute noodles (You can get 99% Fat free varieties)
1 or 2 eggs
1.5 dashes of milk or cream (if you like)
Herbs, spices, other things you might put in an omelet. (Today I’m going to try sweet chili sauce and fresh chopped coriander.)
What to do…
1. Cook the 2-minute noodles as per instructions. For a bit of texture, cook them a little al dente, a tiny bit underdone.
2. Drain the noodles and add the egg, herbs, spices, etc. Mix well taking care not to break up the noodles too much.
3. Add the omelet mixture to a hot, greased, non-stick pan and cook on either side.
