Indonesian noodles (farm share recipes)


These few weeks of summer are my favorite time of year here in Minnesota. Sunny, warm, time on the lake and fresh vegs! We are members in a CSA farm share and I love the weekly offerings, it has taught me a lot about what is truly “local” and the challenges of modern, sustainable farming.

When I saw the unique shape of the cabbage, I knew I needed to make something to showcase it. You’d never find something this “odd” on a grocery store shelf!

Indonesian noodles

  • 1lb fettucini 
  • 1lb protein (sliced sirloin is my boys’ preference, but shrimp and tofu work great)
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves chopped garlic
  • 3 carrots shredded, or use matchsticks precut about 1/2c
  • 1 green cabbage, shredded (or sub in coleslaw mix for cabbage/carrots)
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1/3c soy sauce
  • 4 tbsp veg oil, divided
  • 4 stalks celery, chopped

While noodles cook, saute protein in 2 tbsp oil. Remove to bowl. Heat  remaining oil and add onion, celery and carrots, cook 3-5 min until just browning. Add garlic and cabbage, cook another 3-5 min. (If you use the coleslaw mix, just give the onions and celery a headstart before adding it). Add noodles and protein to veg mixture, toss in soy sauce and top with green onions.
