How to cook Egg Noodles in a Microwave

This is actually easier than it sounds. Normally you boil them in a pan of water for about 3-5minutes.

To do this in a microwave, all you need is…….

1) A Packet of dried Egg Noodles (e.g. Blue Dragon brand)

2) A Kettle full of boiling water

3) A Pyrex Glass Bowl

4) Some flavourings (optional)

5) A Microwave

Put the kettle on to boil (making sure it has water in it), place the nest of noodles in the bottom of the bowl.

At this stage you can add your flavourings to make the noodles more interesting. I like to use curry powder to make curried noodles, but you can also put things like a generous nob of butter, maybe some Oregano…. anything you can think of. You can even Bisto gravy granules to turn the dish into “Noodles in Gravy”, or stock cubes too, though they tend to be a bit salty.

Pour enough boiling water over the noodles to cover them (that’s why you use a bigger bowl for this), and place them in the microwave.

Cook them in the microwave at all power for 3mins 30secs.

Once done, lift the bowl out of the microwave (it’ll be hot), and use a fork to pluck the noodles out of the bowl and to the plate or cereal bowl or whatever you’re serving them in/on.
