I lovvvvvvve noodles, when I was a kid I used to beg my mum for two minute noodles for dinner (sadly she rarely gave in to my requests haha)
Unfortunately two minute noodles are not the most hormone friendly option soooo I came up with my own version that is not only hormone friendly but it is also insanely DELICIOUS! (and husband approved so you can bet others in your household will love this dish too!
The main thing here is to make sure you choose a hormone friendly noodle option (or whatever type of noodle you know your body will tolerate best.
So good options are:
Black bean noodles
Whole grain noodles
I decided to use buckwheat noodles for this and I worked a treat! (for those wondering despite the name buckwheat is actually a seed not a grain!)
NOTE: I usually don't eat a lot of tofu however this dish really called for it. I also used some organic non-GMO tofu for this dish.
Feel free to omit the tofu all together or replace with another protein.
