A Nature article claimed the oldest evidence of noodle consumption was from 4,000 years ago in China. Noodles are generally considered one of the most nourishing ‘fast foods’ on earth. The classic noodles are being made from rice and wheat. But why not making noodles out of some healthy veggies such as pumpkin, broccoli, carrot or sweet potato and mix them with rice or buckwheat?

Pumpkin is a great source of antioxidants, fiber and vitamin A. A cup of cooked, mashed pumpkin contains more than 200 percent of your recommended daily intake of vitamin A, which aids vision, particularly in dim light, according to the National Institutes of Health. Pumpkin is also rich in carotenoids, the compounds that give the gourd its bright orange color, including beta-carotene.
