Jaden Kitchen Cookbook Testing 2- Noodles for Presto Pasta Nights

Like Mochachocolarita, I love blogging events. It’s a community thing. The world seems a little happier when like minded people get together to celebrate with food. The generosity of food bloggers (or floggers) with information and tips also amazes me.

Well, earlier I posted about my experience about testing out recipes for Jaden’s recipe book. I’m still learning heaps just by stepping out of my little comfort zone and trying out other cuisines and ingredients. Jaden is looking for more testers, so if you feel up to it..try it! It’s great fun.

Recently I have tested out two recipes which I love.

Miso Ramen

I have made Teriyaki Miso Noodles before but this one brings it to another level. Instead of staying safe and buying red miso paste, I decided to try Jaden’s suggestion and use white miso paste. Somehow, I can’t tell the difference!!! Shows how good my tastebuds are.
The use of ramen provided the textural bite to the noodles-which I enjoyed.
Instead of having hard boiled eggs, I under cook the eggs by 3 minutes. This resulted in soft yolks. The runny egg and miso soup combination? Yum! I did find the recipe slightly too salty for my liking but I like the easiness and healthy meal idea.

Korean Jap Chae

This is one recipe that I was a little nervous about trying. It’s not just any Korean stir fried noodles-Jap chae uses sweet potato noodles which I have never used before. I have heard horror stories about how it can become mushy when it becomes overcooked. Thankfully, it didn’t happen.

I like the sesame seeds sprinkle on top of the noodles. It just gives it an extra omph. However, I did find the original recipe a little blend and added a few more tablespoons of soya sauce. Other than that, I do like the amount of vegetables in this. It actually makes me feel healthy!

Yup. It’s that time of the week again. One of my favorite blogging event is Presto Pasta Nights. This showcase how versatile noodles and pasta is. This week Ruth, the founder of the event is hosting.
