This chow mein takes just minutes to prepare and is a delicious way to load up on nutritious vegetables.
1-1/2 cups water
1 onion, chopped
4-5 garlic cloves, minced
1 celery stalk, thinly sliced
2-1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 cup thinly sliced green cabbage
2 cups chopped kale or broccoli florets
2 packages vegetarian lowfat ramen soup mix
Heat ½ cup of water in a large pot. Add the chopped onion and garlic. Cook until the onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Add the celery, mushrooms, cabbage and kale or broccoli. Place the ramen noodles into a plastic bag, and using a large spoon or your knife handle, break them into pieces. Add to the vegetable mixture, along with one ramen seasoning packet and one cup of water. Stir to mix, then cover and cook over medium-high heat until the vegetables and noodles are tender, about 5-7 minutes. Stir occasionally during this time, adding a bit more water if needed. This dish goes well with a tossed green salad.
