6 Calorie noodles was something I heard about last year and thought it was too good to be true.. when I tasted them I realised that I was right! They taste almost fishy and have a very odd texture.
These are the Noodles that Rosin on The Apprentice wanted to make ready meals with, not realising that lots of people already do this! Durrrr.
Tonight I decided to give this another go because 6 calorie noodles sound too good to give up on!!
These are the miracle noodles! I think I bought a job lot from Ocado last year as they were on offer but you can also get them from Holland and Barrett.
Staying with a healthy theme I decided to make something with turkey mince as this is the leanest mince you can buy. I went for Asian flavours again as you really need something strong to make the noodles taste good.
Turkey Noodles – Serves 2
1 packet of Turkey Mince
1 packet of Diet Noodles
Thumb sized piece of ginger
2 garlic cloves
1 stalk of lemon grass
1 red chilli
Thai 7 spice
Stir Fry Vegetables – Mange tout, baby corn, sugar snap peas etc
Half a sliced onion
Half a diced onion
Half a diced green pepper
Olive oil spray
Light Soy Sauce
Half a lemon
Siracha Chill sauce to serve – Not essential
1 thing that you must do with these noodles is give them a good wash in a sieve under running water, the smell when you first open the packet is very off putting and slightly fishy, I would suggest holding your nose until they are washed!
Then smash up the garlic, chilli, ginger and lemon grass with a bit of salt in a pestle and mortar. Fry the diced green pepper and onion in a wok with a spray of olive oil for a few minutes, then add the turkey mince. Add 3/4 of the paste you have just made then add a teaspoon of 7 spice and a few splashes of soy sauce, sesame oil, salt and pepper. When the meat is cooked through add a squeeze of lemon juice and put aside.
Fry your stir fry vegetables in the wok with a small splash of sesame oil and spray of olive oil and add the rest of the paste you made earlier. when almost done add the washed noodles, a few splashes of soy sauce and then throw in your turkey mince.
Mix together and serve with some Siracha Chilli Sauce.
