Simple Noodles

Brought to you by Melanie Peers
from Healthy Body Nutrition

Store bought noodles while delicious and convenient contain a multitude of questionable ingredients including flavour enhancers, thickeners, artificial flavours and multiple forms of MSG. This recipe is equally as delicious and convenient without all the nasties. In fact, it’s so easy your kids can make it themselves!! Adding fat and the protein from bone broth will keep them fuller for longer.

Serves 1


1 portion of Chang’s Long Life or Vermicelli
Rice Noodles
3 tsp chicken or beef bone broth
1½ cups of boiling water
1 teaspoon of fat (ghee, tallow or olive oil)
Salt to taste


1. Pour boiling water into saucepan on low heat and add noodles
2. Add bone broth and stir to combine
3. Cook for 2 minutes or until soft
4. Stir in the fat
5. Pour into bowl and leave to cool slightly
6. Add salt to taste and enjoy

Extra Nutrition:
Add parsley and vegetables such as peas, corn, carrot or spinach.
You can even add diced chicken or beef to turn it into an easy meal.
