To Make Ramen Stir Fry

Here’s all you have to do for this quick and delicious meal:

  1. Discard the flavor packet and boil the noodles until slightly al dente and drain.
  2. Stir fry cabbage and other vegetables until tender-crisp.
  3. Toss noodles with the cooked vegetables and sauce to coat, and serve.

My Favorite Add-Ins

Stir fry with ramen will accommodate just about any vegetable that is easy to sauté. I especially love it with sliced mushrooms, onions, julienned carrots, bean sprouts, broccoli florets, and shredded bok choy or Napa cabbage.

Chopped peanuts will add some welcome texture, flavor, and protein, without preventing vegetarians from enjoying this dish. Add in any leftover meats such as teriyaki chicken thighs. Sprinkle the finished dish with chopped fresh cilantro or green onion for extra taste and eye appeal.

Reheating Ramen Stir Fry

Ramen stir fry will keep tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to four days, or in the freezer for up to four months. Thaw first before reheating, covered, in the microwave. You can also reheat in the oven in a foil-covered oven-safe dish or pan at 350°F for about 10 minutes or until steaming hot throughout.
