Yes, Noodles Again

Noodles with vegetables, peas and boiled Eggs
Noodles, to me, are the most consumed food item in Nigeria today.Why do I say so? when I go shopping, one food item  I see being carried into almost every
parked car is a carton of indomie noodles. When I pass by big supermarkets, kiosks and even open markets, What is displayed at the entrance is cartons of Indomie noodles. I visit friends, hear  their kids ask for food, what do they want? Indomie noodles. Dinner is ready, kids say they are not hungry. OK, ask them what they want for dinner. The reply you get is indomie noodles.

If you know the quantity of indomie noodles consumed by Nigerians on a daily basis, you will beg me to try and come out with more healthy noodle recipes. The variety of noodle recipes I post here is to help our Indomie Noodle generation of kids eat healthy. This is not even the end. We need to try and come up with more recipes that will let them eat all the food nutrients while enjoying their favorite indomie noodles. The only reason some kids reject noodles is the method of preparation ( too sticky, too dry, too soupy or over cooked, insufficient seasoning, too much seasoning)

There are times my kids want it just plain with no veggies, sausages, chicken or eggs, I still give them provided it's not going to be plain noodles every time they eat.  I tried boiling plain salted noodles and serving with tomato stew once, it was yummy. I wish I took pics, would have shared with you guys. In the past, noodles used to be food for kids, now, older siblings and adults are trying to take over. These days, I confidently serve healthy, well cooked  noodles for dinner and no one complains.
