Cooking Procedures

Everyone has a different taste on how they need their noodles done. Some prefer a spicy meal, whereas some consider a less spicy meal to be the meal they would prefer to consume. Therefore before preparing noodles, it is important to consider what the said people will prefer to consume.

First and foremost, ensure that you've enough noodles that will serve you well. Due to various reasons, noodles are always best when served while hot. Boil water on your pot until it is warm, add then add the contents of the noodles.

Plan on cooking your dry noodles anywhere from 8 to 10 minutes, depending on the type of pasta. However, start checking it after four minutes because it can vary based on the size of the noodle. If you've made fresh pasta noodles, you may only need to boil for a minute or two, sometimes three.

It is also important to note that there are different types of noodles. There are vegetative noodles, beef noodles, and chicken noodles. Having taken this into consideration, this means that there are different types of preparations and specific ingredients to use. Therefore, before purchasing any type of noodle, ensure that you're certain that you will like them. People have different choices and preferences, therefore choose the best type of noodle.

Beef and chicken noodles have similar cooking procedures, based on there names, you can choose to add beef or chicken to the noodles to taste. You will require the following ingredients:

  1. 2 (7-ounce) refrigerated udon noodles, seasoning sauce packets discarded*
  2. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  3. 8 ounces beef top sirloin filet, thinly sliced across the grain
  4. 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
  5. 6 ounces broccoli florets
  6. 2 carrots, diced

In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, oyster sauce, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, red pepper flake and ground black pepper; set aside. In a large pot of boiling water, cook udon noodles according to package instructions; drain well. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add beef and cook, flipping once, until browned, about 3-4 minutes; set aside. Stir in mushrooms, broccoli and carrots to the skillet. Cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in udon noodles, beef and soy sauce mixture until well combined, about 2-3 minutes. Remember that at the beginning i noted that noodles are tastier when served while hot, therefore Serve immediately.

Put down that box of pasta and try vegetable noodles instead. With a spiralizer or vegetable peeler, you can create ribbons or strands of nutrient-packed veggies that are lower in calories than pasta. Firm vegetables, like carrots, beets, winter squash or sweet potatoes, hold their shape best. Eating more vegetables is just a twirl away with delicious recipes like Zucchini Noodle “Pasta” Salad and Carrot-Peanut Noodle Salad.

I will also share about preparing Carrot peanut noodles.

This crunchy salad is made with spiralized carrots instead of noodles. Make sure to use unrefined peanut oil, which is way more flavorful than its refined counterpart and is one of the trio of peanutty ingredients that makes this simple salad stand out. Look for it with other specialty oils or in the Asian section of your grocery store. Below are some of the ingredients you will require;

  • 1 pound carrots, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons unrefined peanut oil
  • 2 tablespoons creamy natural peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium tamari
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs, such as mint, basil and/or cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon chopped salted roasted peanuts

    The formula for pasta seems oh-so-obvious. Water + pasta = dinner — right? But sometimes the supposedly simplest things prove to be the trickiest.

    It turns out the window for pasta perfection — not stuck together, and neither mushy nor hard in the center — is slim. And then there are all the other factors to consider. Should you add salt to the water? Or oil? What about a cold-water rinse at the end?

    If your head is spinning, take a deep breath and let go of the pasta panic. We’ve assembled the best, and easiest, tips for cooking excellent pasta every time.

    When you’re hungry and want to get to spaghetti time stat, you might be tempted to use less water, so it boils quicker. Don’t. Just like pasta needs a roomy pot, it needs plenty of H2O to totally submerge every strand.

    Here’s a tip for making the water boil faster. Put a lid on the pot, but keep it partially uncovered so you’ll hear when the water starts to boil. Leaving a gap will also help keep the water from boiling over before you turn it down.
