Noodles & Cabbage Stir Fry

We love stir-fry noodles when we go out to Asian restaurants. But it’s nice to have a homemade version once in a while. Here is my recipe for homemade noodles stir-fry.  I like to use cabbage and tofu in this noodle dish, but you can add sliced peppers, broccoli, and any other veggies of your choice.

  • Red chili flakes if you want or whole red dried chilies

  • In a large pan heat 2 tbsp oil. Add crushed garlic and ginger and sauté until slightly browned.  Add shredded cabbage and peppers and mix into the garlic ginger and cook on high heat until cabbage is wilted and peppers are tender about 5 minutes.

Cook’s Notes: Pop some frozen spring rolls in the oven, and all you need is a glass of wine to go with this Asian inspired noodle meal.
