The great thing about stir-fry (as with ramen) is that it is highly customizable. Stir-fry is a great way to use up veggies before they go bad. I used carrots, onion and cilantro for this one. But you could use sweet peppers, bell peppers, broccoli, snap peas, zucchini — the list goes on and on.

If you don’t want this to be too spicy, you could omit the additional Sriracha used as a garnish. If you remove it from the sauce, it is going to be a little bit bland, so keep that in mind. If you cannot find Rice Ramen bricks (I prefer Lotus Foods brand for this), you can use the instant ramen. Just make sure to reduce the cook time, as those only take 2-3 minutes to cook through, unlike the 10 minutes the rice ramen bricks take.
