Easiest ever instant noodle pot


BBC Good Food has the perfect, no-fuss packed lunch solution – our quick pot noodle. Discover how to make this handy veggie recipe in minutes.

Points to remember:

  • Grate 2 tbsp creamed coconut and put it in a heatproof jar. Add 1 tsp Thai green curry paste, 1 tsp soy sauce and 1 tsp aubergine pickle. 
  • Sit 1 nest of rice vermicelli on top – it's a good idea to break it into pieces as this will help it fit in the jar but also rehydrate evenly later.
  • Top with a handful of chopped stir-fry vegetables (not beansprouts).
  • Cover the lid and refrigerate until needed (eat the same day).
  • When you're ready to serve, carefully add boiling water to just cover the noodles.
  • Leave to stand 2-3 mins, mix well and enjoy.
  • For extra flavour, add a handful salted peanuts or a squeeze of lime juice just before serving.
