Last week I was contacted by the lovely people at Mr Lee's Noodles in regards to receiving and reviewing six different flavours of their Gluten free noodles. As you're all aware, I love noodles and I eat them more than I do rice. Unfortunately, I've had to cut down significantly on my Gluten intake due to my IBS and so I jumped at the chance to try out something new and of course, gluten free, something that could possibly be extremely convenient for me and you at busy times or on those days when the urge to cook simply isn't there. After all, they are ready in just 3 minutes. So, some quick facts about Mr Lee's Noodles: Gluten Free, Not artificial which can only mean that they are the real deal and 100% recyclable. Their noodles are also low in saturated fats, calories, sugar and salt. And just in case you're wondering (I know I was), Mr Lee is a real person! After I received my package, I couldn't wait to crack one open. I've started with the Warrior Fighting Shrimp flavour, what a great way to start the week. What I love most already about Mr Lee's Noodles are the health benefits; pre-packaged foods tend to have a lot of hidden sugars and saturated fats, well not this time.
First impressions: The packaging is super cute, I love how the top looks like a bamboo steamer. I have one and I use it more than anything in my kitchen. The colour of the packaging is subtle and pleasing to the eye; it's very welcoming. When I opened it, as you'd expect, the noodles looked like, well... Noodles.
Instructions on how to prepare the noodles are printed on the packaging but I'll give you a quick heads up. Simply add boiling water to the noodles, give them a good stir, seal and leave to stand for 3 minutes. It's that easy!
As for the taste, I'm not a big fan of shrimp but this flavour was actually really nice. It's medium spicy and the noodles definitely tasted fresh, it was as if they had just been cooked which was a bonus. My brother did finish them off for me as he loves shrimp, not mention that he was giving me the death stare for not sharing.
I'm so excited to try the rest of flavours and of course, I'll be taking you with me every step of the way. Bon appetit!
