Noodle box

So in Graz right now a popular fast food “meal” is a noodle box. You can buy it from a stand on the street or even in a restaurant, and the types vary. However I wanted to try to make it at home and possibly a little healthier.

The ingredients you’ll need:

noodles (in the photo Soba noodles are shown but I have also used wholewheat pasta and thought it turned out even better)

Vegetables (any type of vegetables you like. I have used peas and carrots in the past, broccoli and cauliflower, pretty much any type of frozen vegetables I have in my freezer).

optional: Chicken for protein (I have made this without chicken and it turned out well but having some sort of protein will help keep you full after! Some of the restaurants also use shrimp)

For the sauce:

Soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger

Toping: Sriracha Sauce

First cook the noodles and vegetables (I put them in the same pot and just drain it all when finished) and cook the chicken (anyway you like).

Make the sauce by mixing all ingredients ( I do not measure but do it by taste- this will depend on your own preference).

When everything is cooked drain the noodles and vegetables and mix the mixture, meat, and sauce together (I mix it in the post so that I don’t dirty unnecessary dishes).

Hope you enjoy this healthier take on a fast food meal.
