Is there anything better than a lovely bowl of just cooked, tender vegetables and juicy chicken, coated in a delicious sauce?

Yep. Adding kelp noodles to the mix.

Wow guys, just…wow! I had never even heard of kelp noodles until recently and was hesitant to say the least about trying them. I admit to being scarred for life buy the old Shiratake noodles with the distinct aroma, so I wasn’t really expecting these kelp noodles to be any different.

But they have no smell. NONE, I promise. They don’t really have a flavour either, but take on the taste of the sauce nicely. And they have the most divine mouth feel to them. They remind me a bit of rice vermicelli noodles, with a bit of crunch.

Anyway. If you’ve been missing noodles and on the fence about trying kelp noodles, then rest assured that you won’t be disappointed when you do.

  7. Meanwhile, finely slice the bok choy leaves. Slice the spring onions on an angle for better presentation. Place in a bowl with the bok choy leaves.
