Wagamama Ways With Noodles

Hugo Arnold
Authors:
Hugo Arnold

Ways with Noodles takes its inspiration from Wagamama's core expertise - noodles: how to cook, serve and eat them. Hugely versatile, noodles turn up in soups, side dishes, as a nest for meat, fish or vegetables, as a bed for curry or in a salad. They can be stir-fried or dressed, or poached in a heady broth, aromatics being provided by freshly chopped herbs. And they are healthy too: high in complex carbohydrates, low in fat, while most recipes make much use of fresh vegetables and fish. Try the mouthwatering recipes, which include Wide-Ribbon Hot-Pot with Seven Vegetables, Chargrilled Chicken, Soba and Miso Soup, and Marinated Salmon Ramen. Look no further for delicious noodle recipes for every occasion, from appetisers to family meals to elegant dinner party dishes.
