Light Meal – Purple Wheat Noodles
1 packet Purple Wheat Noodles
2 tsp Olive oil
2 tsp Shiitake Mushroom Vegetarian Oyster Sauce
1 Hard boiled egg
Some shredded lettuce, strips ham, quartered cherry orange/red tomatoes
- Cook noodle in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes. Drain noodles.
- For a firmer bite, rinse quickly under cold water.
- Serve with the ingredients above or your own favourite choice.
For Kids Bento, mix noodles (olive oil & shiitake muschroom vegetarian oyster sauce) with some sweet corns and cutey fishcakes and place some strawberries and cherry tomatoes at the side.
Purple is the new yellow in the noodle colour palette.
A blend of purple corn and purple wheat grown in Canada is used to make purpleberry flour, which gives the noodles its unusual colour.
The springy noodles, which are a little more chewy than regular instant noodles, are packaged with no seasoning or garnishing packets.
The noodles can be eaten straight out of the
packet. Once cooked, they can be served in soup or dry, or even as a cold noodle dish with dipping sauce.
Thanks Mary ;S This is really healthy!
Wow…lovely noodles. Lovely the presentation. First time I hear of purple noodles. Looks very delicious. Thanks for sharing, Ann.

Hello Patty: Thanks for coming here. Please visit often and leave your comments :DD
Hello! I have just started sending my 3 year old to school with a bento box, but her meals are not as elaborate or as gorgeous as the one presented in your blogpiece! Amazing! Thank you for the inspiration!
Little Inbox: This purple wheat noodles is available at all supermarkets here and is consider quite cheap S$2.10 for 5 packets.
Kristy: So you have tried it out already? OK, the next time I'll add dark soy sauce. I think can also add shallot oil or anything we like to add.
I like it with dark soy sauce! Simply delicious.
Purple wheat noodles, looks great and healthy too.
So far, I haven't see this type of noodles at the organic corner, just try seaweed noodles, carrot noodles and plain wheat noodles.
Hi Blessed Homemaker:
Thank you for visiting 🙂 Try this, I am sure your kids will love it. Can add luncheon meat or chicken meat too.

Rebecca: Thank you so much for the request. But I am not good at this, can you guide me?
Food4Tots: Thank you. You too can made delicious meal for your kids.
Bento box is too cute. Those boxes are all the rage at my GS nursery school. His GM just came back from Korea and purchased a few for him and they are so cute. Our problem is finding foods that he enjoys to eat to put into them. He is a picky eater and prefers to only eat Korean foods or baked mac n cheese:) Oh and I like your cake stencils.
Oh! Never had these noddles…it look yummie, and love the way you decorated the lunch box 🙂
The bento is so cute! Have to look out for this noodle, nice colour!
