Recipe by lynnski LA
READY IN: 55mins




  • In a large pot of salted water, boil the noodles until cooked.
  • Drain and toss them with just enough oil to keep them from sticking.
  • Spread them to cool on a tray or cookie sheet.
  • Heat a lightly oiled, non-stick frying pan, and add one fourth of the noodles evenly in the frying pan.
  • They should be flat, not heaped.
  • Fry until crisp and brown underneath, then flip them and fry the other side.
  • Repeat to make 4 crispy noodle cakes and place on individual plates.
  • Fry the onion, garlic, and ginger until brown.
  • Add the remaining stir-fry vegetables and stir-fry 2 minutes more, or until barely cooked but still crisp.
  • Spread the stir-fried mixture on top of the noodle cakes in 4 equal portions.
  • Serve.
