Noodles: If you want to make a more authentic dish, purchase chow mein noodles from an Asian store. I prefer to use the stir fry rice noodles (which are gluten free). You can also use ramen noodles or even angel hair pasta. Vegetables: This is a great dish to add in more vegetables. You can double the cabbage and carrots if preferred. You can also add in bell peppers (cook a few minutes before adding in cabbage), bok choy and mushrooms. Protein: To make a complete meal, you can add in cooked chicken, beef or pork. Spices: If you'd like to take the heat up a notch add in a splash of sriracha sauce and red pepper flakes.
