This was sent to me by Daniel from Brazil a while back – thanks again! Brazilian varieties fascinate me; the flavors are very unique and so far quite tasty! Let’s check out this light variety.
Nissin Miojo Nissin Lamen Light Legumes – Brazil
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Possibly meat free but check for yourself. To prepare, cook noodles in 400ml boiling water for 3 minutes. Add in sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A dry sachet.
The weight on this sachet compressed it.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added scallion, sesame seeds, and shichimi togarashi. The noodles hydrated nicely and sucked up much of the liquid. The broth has a kind of chili taste to it – almost like chili cheese but not quite. It’s quite good – not what I expected from a vegetable flavor noodle. 3.75 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 7891079000397.
I reviewed this one on February 10th, 2019. This has been a crazy week – we’ve got layers of snow here and haven’t been able to even move the car since Friday. It’s Tuesday and probably we won’t be going anywhere today, either.
The weather folks say this has been a storm series that I’ll be able to tell mygrandkids about. Yesterday was the best day of it – after days of not making it about freezing and waking up to take the dog out in 13 degrees (-10.5C) cold, it finally warmed up a bit. To the point that it started dumping snow yet again. Huge fluffy wet flakes.
It was great – it had been so slick and icy everywhere and now you could run in the stuff. We threw snowballs at eachother, Kit built a snowman with Miri which on first attempt Miles ran over to and kicked over. I rolled a pretty big snowball. It was a lot of fun. In the sky we saw flashes from time to time – snow undoubtedly weighing down branches of big Douglas fir trees to the point of snapping and busting power lines which in turn cause transformers to explode.
It’s funny because I know this will end up published about 3 months from now as we’re knee-deep not in snow but in springtime. Let’s check it out!
Here’s the back of the package (click to enlarge). Mentions being vegetarian. To prepare, add to 200ml boiling water and cook until water is absorbed. Add in sachet contents. Finally, stir and enjoy!
The noodle block.
A wet sachet.
A thick and dark liquid.
A small dry sachet.
Finished (click to enlarge). Added spring onion and Salad Cosmo mung bean sprouts. The noodles come out very nice – I like them. The flavor did have a Worcestershire component, but there was a strong sweetness that just wasn’t my cup of tea. I like a bit more Worcestershire bite to yakisoba. 2.0 out of 5.0 stars.
