How to cook noodles



Cooking wheat noodles. Add dried noodles to a pot of boiling water and cook for the length of time recommended on the packet (usually around 5 minutes). We recommend that you don't use the instant ramen type of noodles as these usually contain large amounts of palm oil—a highly saturated fat. To prepare packaged pre-cooked noodles, simply soak them in hot water for a few minutes to soften and separate before using.

Preparing rice noodles and bean thread noodles. Place noodles in a large bowl and pour boiling water over them to cover. Leave to soak for about 5 minutes until noodles soften and separate when stirred. The thicker rice stick noodles need longer soaking—around 10 minutes.
