If you have a coffee maker and a love of noodles, you can combine the two of them to your ad-vantage. It’s not very well-known, but coffee makers can make a lot of tasty stuff in addition to typical caffeinated beverages. Additionally, anyone can do it—it’s not hard!
Make sure your coffee maker or espresso maker is designed to release plain hot water into a pot, though. If it’s not able to, you won’t be able to use it this way. However, if your machine does have what it takes, it can make a variety of meals. Oatmeal, grits, soup, and veggies are a couple of options, but noodles are one of the most common.
Making noodles with this method is every bit as convenient as instant noodles bought in packs or cartons. You’re not making ramen, though. You’re making noodles that will be full of ingredients and will be much fresher.
If you really wanted to, though, preparing instant ramen with your coffee maker is even easier than preparing your own noodles—you’d simply need to hold the container under the coffee maker’s hot water dispenser and let it sit. Wouldn’t you rather make your own noodles fresh, though? Of course you would. No matter what your preferences are, you’ll be able to prepare something with ease!
First, you’ll need to gather your ingredients. Recipes for making your own noodles are all over the internet. As it turns out, they come in handy for those looking to make them in unconventional ways! Keep in mind that you aren’t limited regarding the kind of noodle you can use. Thai or Vietnamese rice noodles can be used for the least amount of prep. If you choose to use chilled noodles, you will want to cook them in your coffee pot for a minute or so before working on adding any other ingredients. You could even use Italian pasta—just make sure you cook it long enough!
Once your noodles are prepared, your chosen recipe should instruct you on how to prepare the ingredients. If you plan on making more than one jar of noodles, you’ll need to make sure you have enough ingredients and distribute them appropriately. If saving jars for later, seal ingre-dients inside and refrigerate them until you are ready to prepare them.
When you’re ready to cook them, simply unseal them, remove any packaged ingredients, and add boiling water from your coffee maker. The packaged ingredients get dumped in on top. Seal the jar and allow the noodles and the ingredients two minutes to cook inside. Then you’re ready to serve! The method is that easy, and it works for a variety of recipes. It guarantees you a rea-died meal to take on the go, and it’s resealable. Noodles are wonderfully convenient—just like your coffee maker!
