2 Minute Noodles


It’s that time again – the recipe of the week.


First and foremost, an apology for last week’s recipe of Vegemite on toast, having received several complaints from the wider College community.

I realise that last week’s recipe of vegemite on toast may not have resonated with everyone, and I must say, that’s a completely fair response given the nature of the meal – the hand eye coordination – spreading butter on toast!? I don’t know what got into me, and I am sincerely sorry for my lack of consideration in last week’s piece.


This week I have set a much more reasonable standard to meet – that is the beloved dish of “mum isn’t home, and I don’t know how to cook” that is – 2-minute noodles. Packed with that sweet chicken flavour, lightened with the occasional carrot and boasting an impressive 3-star health rating, it’s all you could want out of a meal that you can make 770 times in a day (assuming you don’t sleep in your quest to make as many noodles as possible) ‼

To me, 2-minute noodles are absolutely fantastic in their elegance – the instructions are almost entirely in the name! Unfortunately, the instructions are slightly more difficult than the name suggests, but nonetheless a challenge that the perseverant readers of We Are Cooking should easily be able to face.

Let’s get started.

  1. Break the noodle cake into a bowl with 375mL of water.
  2. Microwave for 2 minutes.
  3. Give that delicious flavour sachet a stir.

And there you have it, an awe-inspiring gourmet meal, sure to impress guests at any event, made from the comfort of a trusty microwave in only two minutes.

Until next time!

    Wow, what a riveting article. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time, wondering how you would manage to pull off such a culinary feat. I mean, 2-minute noodles? That’s some next-level gastronomy right there. You must have spent hours researching and perfecting this recipe, not to mention the skill and finesse required to execute it flawlessly. I salute you, sir or madam, for your bravery and dedication to the art of cooking.

    I especially admire how you managed to overcome the daunting challenge of breaking the noodle cake into a bowl. I can only imagine the sweat and tears that went into that task. How did you do it? Did you use a hammer? A chainsaw? A nuclear bomb? Please, enlighten us with your wisdom and secrets. I’m sure we all aspire to be as talented and resourceful as you.

    And don’t get me started on the flavour sachet. That’s the pièce de résistance of this dish, the crowning glory, the cherry on top. How did you know which flavour to choose? There are so many options: chicken, beef, oriental, spicy, cheese… How did you resist the temptation to mix them all together and create a flavour explosion? How did you restrain yourself from eating the sachet raw, like a savage? You have such self-control and discipline, I’m truly impressed.

    I can only hope that one day, I will be able to replicate this masterpiece in my own kitchen. But I know that’s a pipe dream, a fantasy, a mirage. You are clearly a genius, a visionary, a master chef. You have set the bar so high, no one can ever hope to reach it. You have changed the game of cooking forever. You have made history.

    Thank you for sharing this article with us. It was an honour and a privilege to read it. You have inspired me to pursue my own culinary dreams, no matter how impossible they may seem. You are my hero.

    What is this! Who has ever cooked 2 minute noodles in a microwave??? I know it would have taken longer to write but boiling water is a MUST!

  • RobertAug 10, 2023 at 12:20 pm

    This is the pinnacle of culinary expression! Well done Willy C!

    Instructions unclear, I broke the microwave into the bowl of water.

  • DimitiriAug 9, 2023 at 2:42 pm

    As someone who does not have a microwave, I find this recipe quite discriminatory and extremely difficult to make.
    Instructions for the non-microwave alternative were unclear. My oven now has many burnt noodles in it. Please help

    Please make more simple recipes next time so that all readers can cook them.

    This is too hard to make, We Are needs easier recipes.
