It’s been some time since we last had noodles. I had some of the Spicy Lemongrass paste leftover, so I thought, “OK, let’s have something simple – stirfried rice vermicelli..  with some mixed frozen seafood and my homegrown taugeh. It turned out pretty good.. 🙂

Serves 4


  • 200g rice vermicelli (mihoon), soaked in cold water for at least 30mins

  • 90g taugeh/bean sprouts, tailed
  • 1500g mustard green or chinese cabbage, sliced
  • 1 tbsp chopped garlic
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 100ml water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • a dash of pepper
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
