We're all wild about noodles. They are perfect if you are trying to eat a little more healthily but don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.
However, it seems that noodles are not the first thing many people think of when they are hungry and are in need of a tasty and quick meal.
But why not?
其實只要把麵或河粉放進美味的湯液中，配點新鮮蔬菜、海鮮或肉片，前後只需 15 分鐘時間，一碗色香味全，熱呼呼的湯麵便被端到桌上！
Noodles and a delicious broth served with some fresh vegetables, seafood or meat is an enjoyable, simple and stylish to serve meal which is ready to eat in just fifteen minutes!
And they're nothing if not healthy; high in complex carbohydrates, low in fat and essentially free of additives.
除此之外，一碗麵給人的感覺是那麼的清爽 ; 吃後讓人感到滿足和精力充沛。
What's more, they are also refreshing, invigorating and satisfying.
We haven't been eating a lot of beef lately, so I treated my husband to a big bowl of beef noodle soup for lunch the other day, since he has been doing lots of work in the garden for me!
You can easily substitute the beef for chicken or pork, if you prefer.
