VERMICELLI Bean Thread Noodles, 2 units, 8.8 oz ea
Bean thread noodles, also known as cellophane noodles or glass noodles, are a type of clear noodle made from mung bean starch. Unlike other noodles, they are almost flavorless and have a chewy texture. This makes them the perfect canvas for a variety of flavorful sauces and seasonings. Here are three creative ways to enjoy bean thread noodles at home:
1. Spicy Sichuan-Style: Saut? bean thread noodles with garlic, ginger, and chili peppers in a blend of soy sauce, dark soy sauce, and sesame oil. Serve with boiled egg and chopped scallions.
2. Vietnamese Spring Rolls: Soak bean thread noodles in warm water until soft. Drain and mix with shredded carrots, chopped shallots, crushed peanuts, cilantro, and mint leaves. Wrap mixture in rice paper rolls and serve with dipping sauce.
3. Thai Coconut Curry: Cook bean thread noodles in a coconut milk-based curry broth with your favorite vegetables. Serve over steamed rice for a complete meal.
