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.
Here’s one that was sent by a Brazilian reader named Daniel – thank you again! I couldn’t figure out a whole lot about this one – I do know that galinha is young hen. Usually tends to be on the oilier side. So let’s give it a try!
