How to make Tofu and Rice Vermicelli Noodles

  1. Soak rice vermicelli in warm water for at least 15 minutes or until it's semi-soft. Do not soak more than required or else the vermicelli will become soggy easily during cooking. Drain in a colander, set aside.
  2. Heat up oil in a large pan or wok. Sauté the garlic until aromatic.
  3. Add carrot, mushrooms and tofu and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Then add cabbage and a little soya sauce or salt. Sauté until almost cooked. 
  4. Pour in vermicelli and water, then add all seasonings. Add bean sprouts and sauté until all the ingredients are coated evenly. Use a pair of chopsticks to help loosen the noodles. Cover wok to let vermicelli and ingredients cooked through for about 1-2  minutes.
  5. Uncover and sauté vermicelli until gravy is almost dried up and noodles are soft. Add water if the mixture is too dry or if you prefer the dish to be more moist, do adjust the seasonings to taste.
  6. Transfer to a plate, and top with garnishes. Serve and Enjoy!

My Tip:

Dfferent brands of rice vermicelli absorb different amount of water so do adjust to your preferred consistency.
