Asian Noodle Cakes with Bok Choy
If you've got some instant noodles in the cupboard and want to do something a bit different with them, here's a great option. They are like little quiches with noodles and they make a good alternative to sandwiches in a lunch box. They are quite mild in flavour to suit children, but feel free to add some chilli!
