I wanted to make this a healthier version, but I didn’t quite get the texture I was looking for. I started out by throwing away the spice packet and then cooking the noodles as normal in boiling water. After they were cooked, I tried to bake them for 20 minutes to make them crisp up. I was trying to avoid deep-frying.
I ended up with noodles that were still tasty, but slightly chewy. I thought it was an improvement over the regular soft texture.
For the topping, I sautéed some red onions, garlic, and carrots. Once they were nearly cooked, I added in some kale. I kept cooking until the kale just wilted.
It was a great combination and a very tasty lunch!
