Vegetable stir fried rice noodles – Bifun

This rice noodle recipe is very similar to Korean Jap Chae but made with thin rice noodles. It’s mild in flavor but very pleasant to the palate and can be eaten hot or cold. This makes a healthy snack (like these yummy veggie stuffed peppers) as it’s low in fat and low in calories or can be eaten as a light dinner option. For vegans, either omit the fish sauce or use vegetarian fish sauce. This is an easy stir fry noodle recipe you can use as a base to create many different versions of it.
