Noodles better than take out!!!! Don’t get me wrong, I love the occasional take outs. However, they can get super unhealthy because we have no control over what actually goes in our food when we eat out. When you order out, you either end up with food that is super greasy or food that is just not healthy for you.
So how do you eat good without stressing over these things? You make your own noodles that’s better than take out. Want to know how I made these noodles in less than 30 minutes? keep scrolling.
These noodles were super easy to make and were pretty much made up of ingredients that already existed in my fridge. My veggies consisted of red bell peppers, chives, mushrooms, carrots and beef skirt steak.
Now the good thing about this recipe is that you can add and subtract to and from it. You get to decide what veggies you want and what protein you fancy. You can add in some chicken breasts and shrimps if you want. You can also add in more veggie choices or take out.
The secret to this noodle dish does not lie in the veggies used, but the actual sauce. Even when I go out to eat or order out, the sauce makes all the difference for me and that’s why I have carefully created a sauce base that makes these noodles better than your take out.
It is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. Now, you can finally make noodles that do justice to your taste buds in the comfort of your home.
