Mummy’s Pot Noodle


Always popular with kids, but the ones you buy are really high in salt. It only takes a few minutes to make your own and it’s fun to serve them in a cup, a bit like pot noodles.

  • A great very very easy tea. My son loved it and so did the husband for a snack so happy all round. I did add some sliced green pepper and a little garlic to add a little more flavour. Thanks a lot for the inspiration
