Simple Noodles

Quick and easy noodles with mild flavors that taste pleasing to the palette. A one-dish comfort food that is healthy, balanced and nutritious.


I am a noodle person! I love noodles all the way.

Of course, my all time favorite is Maggi noodles! However, I do have a homemade favorite, mom’s noodles. Gosh, how much I love it.


Colorful vegetables stir fried on high flame and tossed with noodles and sauce. A one-dish meal with vegetables, starch, add in some tofu or chicken for protein, all in one bowl makes it a healthy, balanced and nutritious dish.


This is not a rich, sophisticated dish containing bold flavors. It is more towards light, simple, mild flavors and a soothing taste. It is such an unassuming dish but so pleasing to the palette. It will definitely catch you by surprise – something made with simple ingredients and plain flavors can taste so good.
