Birthday noodles

We always cook noodles during birthdays. So last 12 July was my hubby's 41st. I cooked noodles the night before (see recipe below) and also for dinner on the 12th. This time I used brown rice vermicelli with shrimp balls (mixed with carrots). I only had cabbage as vegetable as this was the only one available in my fridge (for noodles). Other vegetables that can be used include carrots, mushrooms, green beans, bean sprouts.

Brown rice vermicelli, 100 g
Shrimp balls, 200 g, sliced into pieces
Cabbage, half medium, sliced into strips
Chopped garlic
Sliced onions
Knorr cubes
Soy sauce

1. Prepare noodles as instructed, i.e. soak for 5 minutes or so. Then cut at sides/corners. Drain
2. Saute garlic and onions.
3. Add sliced shrimp balls and knorr cubes. Mix. Add carrots, beans and mushrooms if available. Cook for a minute.
4. Add softened noodles and mix.
5. Add some water to cook noodles.
6. Add cabbage.
7. Add soy sauce and pepper.
8. Serve.
