Instant noodle pot lunch

Eat small.png

In winter I am always looking for easy lunch recipes that are high on vegetables, easy to make and substantial.  Meet the 'instant noodle': throw some leftovers in a glass container and add some courgette noodles.  At lunch, just add hot water and enjoy a warming meal.   


serves 2



1 courgette, spiralised
1 handful baby spinach, chopped
6 mushrooms, sliced
salmon, cooked
1 spring onion, sliced
curry paste
1 red chili, sliced

  1. Layer all the ingredients in a heatproof container starting with the curry paste and building up.

  2. When you are ready to eat: fill the container with boiling water, leave for 5 minutes, enjoy!


  • Use whatever you have left from dinner. Good combinations are: 2 vegetables, a protein (salmon, chicken...) and some curry paste or miso
