#3506: Mr Lee's Noodles Zen Garden Vegetables - United Kingdom

Well, here we go!I did a Meet The Manufacturer with Mr Lee’s a couple of years ago, and now they’re going to be producing in the USA! Sounds like starting May 2020 their products will be available (and also made) here as well as in the UK. They’ll be available on Amazon and I’ll do reviews of the Us made versions when they become available. This one’s Vegan and only 208 calories! Not only that, this is one of the few manufacturers that use freeze dried rather than dehydrated bits. Let’s check it out!

Detail of the side panels (click to enlarge).

Th opposite side of the labeling (click to enlarge). Says it’s Vegan but check for yourself. To prepare, shake the cup. Open and add boiling water to fill line (more for soupy, less for less soupy). Cover and let steep for 3 minutes. Finally, stir and enjoy!

The noodle block.

Loose bits and solid pieces from the cup.

Finished (click to enlarge). Added nothing. The rice noodles come out very nicely – soft and numerous in quantity. The broth has a vegetable taste, no doubt strongly influenced by the myriad freeze dried veg included. The broccoli tastes like steamed broccoli – just a little softer. A very fresh vegetable taste in this cup. 4.25 out of 5.0 stars.  EAN bar code.  5060492470137.
