So I've been thinking about this for a while.

You guys have seen people infuse water with all different kinds of fruits, vegetables, what have you, in order to give the water a better taste? I'm curious it might work out with dry noodles being soaked in water which has been infused already. The noodles would absorb the flavor of the infused water and "cold cook" themselves in the fridge for however long it tastes.

Anyone ever "cold cook" noodles like this? I may experiment with this on Wednesday/Thursday. Would post results of anyone's interested.

yes, it works fine, takes a lot less time than you think, and you still need to flashcook them in boiling water before serving. pretty standard way to prep pasta in crap restaurants ime.

>what to flavor the water with?
>the Knorr Stockpot of course

Somewhat interested op. Post results once you try it.

Some packaged noodles come precooked and dried instead of raw and dried. You could always just get the precooked kind and wouldn't even need to heat it up.

I feel stupid for taking the bait.

Doesn't everybody prep rice noodles like that? It's completely different to spaghetti.
>>
my mom would do something similar.

whenever she made pasta she always brought the water to a boil, threw the pasta in then just shut off the heat.

Rice noodles don't have to cook the same way as pasta though.

It may reduce the cooking time but you'd still need to cook them, also I have no idea how you'd get al dente out of water soaked pasta.

Rice noodles are completely different.

The problem about soaking in cold water is that water absorption would be much slower. More absorption means more mushiness.
