notes

  • Use whatever vegetables you enjoy, or try adding some tofu or vegan meat replacements.
  • Vermicelli rice noodles are a great fast noodle option, as they only take a few minutes to cook. I recommend 2 nests of noodles for this recipe, but use however many you like according to your taste and appetite.
  • As mentioned in the method, don't worry about measuring out the sauce ingredients carefully. Cooking is about throwing things in, tasting, adjusting, and getting a feel for how you enjoy your food. I've added measurements as a guide for beginners, but I highly encourage you to experiment with it.
