Mee Goreng Cabbage & Tofu


Mee means noodles and goreng means fry. Mee Goreng are yellow noodles fried with kecap manis ( Sweet soy sauce ) and vegetables made into a spicy mouthwatering dish. This is a very popular dish in Indonesia. It can be eaten as a breakfast or as a meal with other side dishes.

In this recipe I used dried noodle and cooking without meat ( vegetarian ). Then you have to boil the noodles first until soft and then drain well.
