Unlike olden days where one had to plan, prep, and cook a complete meal to be fed when hungry, our everyday life is filled with options in recent years. We sometimes tend to take a break from preparing a whole meal from scratch.

Many times, it is not the ‘cooking’ that is daunting but the prep work from peeling, chopping, grating, and more, that needs time to do.

On busy weeknights or lazy weekends, we dream of a bowl of quick to cook foods that can come handy.  This is when resort to instant foods that can be made by just boiling or microwaving the contents together, like a pack of noodles.
