Today for lunch it was time for leftovers, leftovers and ramen! I had a brat that I cooked yesterday and to go with it, I cooked up some GreeNoodle Yakisoba flavor from RamenPlace.com.
The noodles themselves are made with “Moroheiya” aka “mallow leaf” which, according to the Japanese Health Ministry, “contains great amounts of vitamins, minerals and dietary fibers in quantities that surpass most known vegetables and herbs”.
This leaf gives the noodles a green color and they remain slightly chewy after cooking. The packet comes with some dried veggies, seasoning, and oil/sauce. I cooked these up in a couple minutes, drained, added seasonings, and stirred it up. The flavor was an interesting mix of sweet, savory, and just a very slight spiciness. The dried vegetables, mainly carrots, corn, and I believe cabbage, added some nice extra flavor. The oil really added a lot to this dish. I ended up only using about 2/3rds of the seasoning since it was in danger of becoming too salty. I really enjoyed these noodles. They felt healthier, but tasted better than regular noodles.
Here is Hans’ review of this same flavor. I did not get any of the unpleasant earthy flavors he mentioned, I really enjoyed mine!
