Quick warm rice noodle lunch salad

This lunch literally takes 10 minutes to make. Quick, warm and satisfying :)

1 small clove garlic, finely diced
1 tomato, finely diced
1/2 red chili, finely diced
3 T kecap manis
1 pk rice noodles, sliced into thick ribbons
1 C water
1 can drained straw mushrooms
1/2 bunch of steamed chinese broccoli (or you can use fresh baby spinach, which will wilt down super quick.. i had left over chinese broccoli in my fridge that i wanted to use up).
1 sprig cilantro, finely diced
To serve: a dash of sweet chili sauce and a sprinkling of fried onions!

In a small fry pan throw the garlic, tomato, chili and kecap manis, sauté roughly and then throw in the rice noodles and the water. Cover with a lid and give it a shake after a few minutes, so the noodles aren't tempted to stick.
After about 5 minutes, remove the lid and add the straw mushrooms, the chinese broccoli or baby spinach and the cilantro.
Whack the lid back on for another few moments, give things another rough shake and it's done.
Serve with a swish of sweet chili sauce and a sprinkling of wicked fried onions!!
Deeeelicious :)
