Burnt Chilli & Ginger Speedy Noodles

I don’t know about you, but Noodles are my go to. Quick meal…noodles, comfort food…. noodles, light and fresh…. noodles and food NOW…. noodles. Any style, type or form and I am yet to find noodles that don’t push my buttons,

But then there is Rice. Please never ask me the ‘would you rather’ question, it’s like asking which Child you prefer.

These are quick, easy and so delicious, and also contain a mystery ‘secret weapon’ ingredient which makes the broth both umami packed and ridiculously delicious.

1 Thumb Ginger, sliced

2 tsp Marmite

300ml Hot Water

4-5 Mushrooms

1tsp Oil

Cooked Soba Noodles

3. Meanwhile, sauté the mushrooms in the oil until crispy and dry. Add to the noodles with the garnishes and eeeeeeeat!
