Whether it’s whipping up a quick lunch or as the perfect potluck dish for a dinner party, stir-fried noodles are always a favourite amongst Malaysians. There’s something very comforting and yummy about grabbing a fork and digging into a hot plate of noodles that just make your taste buds sing!
However, fried noodles come with a dark side (and no, we don’t mean the dark soy sauce kind). Fried noodles can be very unhealthy as the dish contains a lot of oil and very little nutrition. But don’t worry, you don’t have to give up your favourite noodles just yet! Here’s a tweaked recipe to traditional fried noodles to make it healthier for the whole family.
First off, swap vegetable oil for sesame oil. Studies have shown that using sesame oil in cooking helps lower your cholesterol. So, not only is it flavourful, it’s much healthier too.
Next, is an unconventional addition but it really adds nutrition to the dish - use just two scoops of Nutrilite Soy Protein Drink powder. This protein powerhouse will help ensure that you meet your daily protein requirements without changing the taste at all.
Lastly, don’t be afraid to add your own touch to the recipe too! If you enjoy egg in your noodles, go ahead and add a fried egg to the dish, or you could make it more spicy with sliced chillies, or even switch the protein up and use prawns or beef instead - it’s completely up to your taste.
