People are consuming all sorts of ‘rainbow food’, so I was inspired to come up with this – Rainbow Noodles, the more natural way.
The logic is simple. Combine fresh vegetables of varied colours with Koka Purple Wheat Noodles and we are IN for a healthy treat.
The purple colour in KOKA Purple Wheat Noodles comes from its ingredients, purple wheat and purple corn. The deep pigmentation is due to the presence of Anthocyanins, the same antioxidants as those found in bilberries and blueberries. So all natural.
The power of PURPLE.
Previously, I did up a recipe of KOKA PURPLE Wheat Noodles, Aglio Olio with Shrimp & Chilli.
This Rainbow” KOKA Chilli & Lime Salmon Noodles has three special features:
– It is colourful and kids should enjoy having this ‘vege’ meal too.
– Due to the presence of chili and lime in the seasoning, it may remind you subtly of Thai flavours.
– The noodles can be kept in the fridge, and eaten like a salad cold. How convenient!
