For extra vegetables and color, you could add one small, thinly sliced red bell pepper to the cabbage mixture. A side of roasted broccoli is nice with this meal too.
For extra protein, you could top the noodles with cooked chicken or shrimp. Or serve with a side of steamed edamame.
Make it gluten-free: For a gluten-free recipe, choose gluten-free soy sauce or tamari, and use rice noodles or gluten-free spaghetti.
Single serve ramen packages work well. In this case, discard the seasoning packets. I use three packages, which is 9 ounces. It will be a slightly lower sauce-to-noodle ratio, but it works well…and breaking off one ounce seems silly!
