In the past 10 days I had to present 3 presentations as part of my placement. Yes three! One of which was two hours long… It was quite stressful preparing for all three but now that that’s all in the past I have a bit more time to myself and more time for the blog! Which means more recipes to share with you guys. On the bus home today I somehow started thinking about noodles and how long it’s been since I made some. Noodles and couscous used to be regulars in my diet but since being low FODMAP I stopped both. Despite buying rice noodles and having an ample stock in my cupboard I still hadn’t made noodles in months! Therefore I came up with this recipe on my way home. It is relatively quick and easy to make. Hope you enjoy it. For those of you in the UK I used Ko-Lee rice noodles for this recipe which I bought from Sainsbury’s. They’re great and a packet costs only 75p. How great is that?!
