Must have Noodles

I don't know about you, but sometimes I just have a huge craving for noodles. And what makes this dish special is adding rosemary, to make it both Western and Eastern. You can have this dish as a complete entree, or have a little on the side, for days and days of leftovers.

2 cups shredded cabbage
1 stalk rosemary
1/2 cup onions, chopped
3 tbsp vegetable oil, or peanut oil if you can find it
1 tbsp garlic, chopped
Salt to taste
1 tsp Fish sauce (if you have it)
soft rice noodle vermicelli (dont' use mung bean (glass noodle) vermicelli, it's different. You can simply soften in cold water for 10-20 minutes, or in hot tap water for 3-5 minutes, but if you want it fast, and you're super hungry, hot boiled water less than 1 minutes)


  • Drain the noodles so they're nice and dry
  • Heat the saucepan with oil on low heat
  • Caramelize the onions and rosemary
  • Add in garlic and cabbage
  • Add salt now, because salt quickens the cabbage to soften
  • Add the noodles and fish sauce
  • Mix for 2-3 minutes

Your craving for noodles can now be satisfied!
