A note from the author:
I was raised on noodle soup by my Cantonese mother. Although my training is in French cooking, when I'm tired or stressed, I'll reach for a bowl of noodles every time.
I spent a year writing, painting, and testing Noodler. I hope you'll love it as much as I love rice vermicelli in chicken broth topped with poached shrimp, bok choy, and chopped scallions.
Ratings and Reviews
Excellent … but flawed
This is, overall, an excellent app, but it has a serious flaw. The many recipes come, of course, from the many possible combinations of the basic ingredients. But what of the person who is, allergic to (or simply dislikes) bell peppers? There's no (obvious) way to remove them from the available ingredients list. Worse, what about vegetarians? The great majority of the recipes suggested by the app are completely useless, and there's no way to make it otherwise.
It would be pretty simple to fix this (an "omit" checkbox in the ingredients list would do it), but until this is done the app will be frustrating to a wide variety of users!
Are you serious?
While the recipes look great and there is interesting and helpful tips I'm giving 2 stars because this app misses the mark. It gives the impression that you'll be able to pick ingredients and it will formulate a recipe for you. That would be cool programming and actual creativity. As I see it It's just a bunch of preset recipes yet you can't even search or scroll or filter results. What's up with "consult the oracle"? There is no consulting, just pushing a button to "randomly" display another noodle recipe within the hidden list. Like so many app makers they think they are producing cutting-edge technology indispensable to the the future of mankind when in reality they are taking 10 steps backwards. If I want to find noodle soup recipes I can go on that thing called the World Wide Web and actually be able to search and see multiple recipes. Thankfully this is free. Deleting it now.
Taking Stock and Stirring Things Up
I love soup. Instantly gratifying in a way that few meals can replicate. Almost always a healthful option and a universal one. Wherever you travel, there’s a steaming bowl waiting be slurped or spooned or sipped.
But in my kitchen taking stock of the right ingredients and recipe can stir up indecision and inaction. What to make?
Someone smarter than I faced this exact problem and created “Noodler.” The app randomly selects from more than 100 ingredients and always creates a perfect combination. (It won’t ever put together clams, butternut squash and chili oil, for example). If you don’t like the outcome, you simply try again until you find a result that you want to see in a pot on your stove.
I like the suggestions “Noodler” has offered so far and hope in future updates I can insert supplies I have on hand and ask the app’s advice. Sometimes I don’t always have the pantry to match the program’s imagination.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
