What is Yakisoba?
Yakisoba noodles look similar to ramen noodles, but they are slightly different. They are made of wheat and best when stir-fried. You can find them at any Asian Supermarket at a very low price - and while you're there pick up the rest of your ingredients for this stir fry.
Here's what you need:
Cabbage - green cabbage is the best in this recipe.
Carrots - you can add different color carrots
Green Bell Peppers - you can also use red or yellow bell peppers.
Broccoli - add great fiber to the dish
Green Onions - if you don’t have any on hand, you can skip it.
Bean Sprouts - an excellent source of antioxidants, but if you don't have them, you can skip it
Yakisoba Noodles – sold in most Asian grocery stores fridge section
Large Wok - great to use if you have one, if not use a large skillet
