Lucky Me noodles are our top option when it comes to instant noodle dishes primarily because they offer healthier options with their NAPA products. Their N-rich Malunggay and Sotanghon Lite noodles are two of our favorite merienda picks. However unlike the N-Rich Malunggay wet noodles, we found another way to enjoy the low fat, low cholesterol Sotanghon Lite noodles.
Instead of serving it in a bowl with soup, I use less water for cooking and leave the noodles a bit longer to absorb the broth, then serve it dry with a some garnishing just like the traditional pancit. I usually cut the Sotanghon noodles to make it easier for the kids to eat and keep them from playing with the long strands. I once caught the little ones stretching out the noodles and lining them up like strings on a guitar. These noodles are topped with strips of scrambled eggs, julienned cabbage and carrots, chicken flakes, and optional toasted garlic bits. The kids aren’t the only ones who enjoy these instant treats, their grandmother who is constantly watching over her cholesterol levels also get to try it once in a while.
