Maan de Vera
We bet that you’ve been cooking one packet after the other of instant pancit canton while in quarantine. We totally get it. After all, this go-to snack isn’t only easy to prepare, but it’s also a no-fail staple to satisfy both our cravings and hunger. Since it appears that we’re going to be at home for a little longer, now is the best time to give your regular instant pancit canton and upgrade.
Here are some of the easy peasy recipes that you can try right now.
1. Cheesy Pancit Canton
Cheese makes everything better. Okay, it doesn’t make *everything better*, but with a few extra steps, you can make your simple instant pancit canton a whole lot creamier and tastier. All you need to do is add egg and sliced cheddar once the noodles are cooked.
2. Korean Pancit Canton
Before our obsession with Samyang or Ram-don, there was instant pancit canton first. In order to do this, you need to saute the sauce separately with brown sugar and gochujang. Once that’s done, all you have to do is top it with rice cakes and you’re all set.
3. Carbonara Pancit Canton
A pack of instant pancit canton and half a cup of evaporated milk can truly go a long way. If you’ve been craving for carbonara, but you just don’t have the ingredient for the real thing just yet, then you may instead opt to cook a simple white sauce and add luncheon meat and grated cheese.
4. Tuna Pancit Canton
There are probably two things present in everyone’s cupboard nowadays: canned tuna and instant pancit canton. It may seem weird to you but combining the two is a fun and simple way to elevate your regular merienda. Just saute the tuna as usual. Once it’s cooked just add and mix the noodles.
5. Fried Pancit Canton
If you’re down to give your instant pancit canton a crispy twist, then this is for you. Apparently, all you need is to add sliced spring onions and egg to the cooked noodles. After this, you can whisk the mixture and then proceed with frying.
The next time you're about to open a pack for a quick snack, you might want to consider whipping these easy recipes and give your instant pancit canton the upgrade it deserves. Enjoy!
