Campervan Mi Goreng

Mi Goreng

The idea here is to take instant noodles and make them fancy. Also more nutritious.
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Servings 2


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 carrot
  • ¼ cabbage
  • 3 packets instant mi goreng
  • 2 eggs


  • Fry diced onions in olive oil on medium/high heat for 5 min.
  • Shred the carrot with a potato peeler. Add to pan and fry for 3 more min.
  • Add the chopped cabbage, possibly in stages if there's too much. It shrinks a bunch. Fry until cabbage is looking yummy, about 10 min.
  • Meanwhile, make the instant mi goreng according to instructions.
  • Mix together the mi goreng noodles, the various msg-laden sauces that come with the packet, and the veggies.
  • Quickly fry up 2 eggs on the pan that held the veggies. Alternatively, soft boil the eggs before you cook the noodles. So long as you have a gorgeous egg to top the dish, you're good.
  • Enjoy with whatever fresh veggies and herbs you have on hand.


Be careful, this dish is addictive.
PS This is delicious with whatever veggies you have, so experiment away!
