Simon Rimmer ’s microwave Thai noodles


If you’re looking for a simple, interesting way to liven up your mid-week lunches, then Thai noodle dishes are a fantas-tic way to combine nutritional ingredients with the fragrant, punchy kick of Southeast Asian food.

Simon’s opted for flat rice noodles but you could also try a thin vermicelli-style as both are great for holding your sauce!
