Want to prepare something yummy yet easy and quick for your little fussy eaters? Try cold green tea noodles. All you have to buy are a packet of green tea noodles, a bottle of Ninben sauce for soba noodles, a packet of shredded Japanese sea weed and toast some sesame seeds. Just blanch the noodles, drain well and rinse off with some cold water (this is necessary so that the strands of noodles will not stick to each other and become starchy). Pour some chilled Ninben sauce into the noodles, sprinkle some roasted sesame seeds and shredded seaweeds on the noodles and you can even add a few ice cubes to the noodles.
This noodles can even be packed into Bento lunch boxes and you can prepare them in a jiffy in the morning.
Left to right : toasted sesame seeds, green tea noodles, Ninben sauce, shredded Japanese seaweed.
Verdict : Alycia and Sherlyin LOVED the noodles to bits and often, 1 bunch of noodles (the noodles come in bunches) is not even enough to satiate their hunger!
