The other day, I was looking in my pantry and realized I had a lot of somen to use and thought I could make champuru with it.
In Okinawan, so-min (soh-mean) means somen (angel hair pasta-like noodle). Champuru means "stir-fry".
The Okinawan cookbooks that I have, had some recipes for so-min champuru but they looked rather "plain" and colorless...
So, I jazzed it up with some colorful veggies...
So-min Champuru : serves 2
1 bundle of somen
orange bell pepper
Cook your somen no longer than a minute and a half, rinse and set aside.
Cut veggies and spam into bite size pieces
In a frying pan, heat oil and stir-fry veggies and spam, if you want your cabbage a little softer, cook longer.
Add some pepper
Toss the somen in and coat well.
NOTES: so easy and delicious. I didn't add any salt because I was using spam, but if you want, you could add some shoyu or salt. Definitely will be making this again.
