Pinoy Laksa Noodles Recipe - Easy to Cook

July is Nutrition Month in the Philippines. Public schools and some private schools have different programs that revolve around nutrition. One of the most common activities school have is nutrition costume contest. I have already posted some suggestions in my previous blog post so won't be giving new ones now. But you click here if you want unique suggestions (like theory of gravitation costume?).

Other common activities in schools are food festival where you bring healthy meals for everybody to share and cooking contest where you cook using unique recipe's. Last week I posted a recipe for making Lumpiang Kalabasa. Now, I'm going to post an easy to cook Laksa inspired noodles. Malaysian Laksa uses laksa paste which unfortunately is not readily available so I just made my own version of the Laksa noodles using simple ingredients.

  • 3 cups    bean sprouts
  • 2 cups    coconut milk
