Lunch Express, choo choo!
The perfect healthy and very inexpensive lunch that you can make at work. I have made this plenty of times and I always receive compliments from strangers in the building. I reckon each bowl is only around $3.00 a pop. So if you have a microwave at work, invest in an inexpensive microwave/steamer bowl or if you work from home you can do this on the stove.
- 1 packet Trident Chicken Noodle Soup (Around 90 cents a packet)
- 1/3 head broccoli
- 1/2 small tin of Champignons or 2 large button mushrooms
Add your soup sachets, the rice chip noodles and vegies to the microwave bowl, cover with water and cook in your microwave for approximately four minutes. Stir once to make sure rice noodle chips separate. That’s it. All up it probably doesn’t take more than five minutes to make, which leaves you with plenty of munch and relax time on your break.
Other Vegies and things I have added to that work really well are; Asparagus, Bean Sprouts, Bok Choy, Egg white, Sugar Snap Peas and leftover BBQ Chicken. I have also added to boost flavours from time to time; Soy Sauce, Sesame Oil and Chilli Oil (seen in pic).
If you have a fridge at work why not take your vegies in whole and cut them up as you need them or alternatively you can prep them at home and keep them in a ziplock bag, til lunch time.
