Wednesday’s Helping: Bihon Noodles

Another Asian staple
We recommend adding or using these noodles to stretch many traditional stir-fry recipes. Bihon noodles or rice noodles can also come in handy as a serving foundation for spicy or saucy dishes. Basically, spoon a portion of seasoned ingredients on top of quickly* cooked or softened rice noodles for a delicate substitute to steamed rice. Again, this food item absorbs any flavors, seasonings, or sauces. These noodles are also known as rice vermicelli or rice sticks. Remember not to confuse rice noodles with cellophane noodles or mung bean noodles.

*Follow cooking instructions on the package carefully so as not to overcook the noodles.
