STORY BEHIND THE DISH
I came across these veggie noodles years ago at the Asian Market by my parents house & I have loved cooking with them ever since. They are more a low mein type of noodle & they cook in just a minute or two! They are delicious & I enjoy them as a side dish for any Asian style meal.
There are so many things that can be added to this dish, garlic, broccoli, snap pleas, any colored bell pepper, watered chestnuts, mini corn, bean sprouts, squash, zucchini, green beans, carrots, cabbage, or even nuts such as almonds, peanuts, or cashews. This side pair well with Asian Flank Steak, Asian Salmon Patty, & Korean BBQ Short Ribs.
