If you can’t find cellophane noodles, you can use vermicelli instead. Simply cook and drain 3 ounces vermicelli as directed on package, and stir into soup in step 4.
Did You Know...
Sesame oil comes in two varieties. One is light in color and has a light, nutty flavor. The darker sesame oil has a stronger flavor and aroma. Feel free to use either one in this recipe.
Serve With
A salad of pink grapefruit sections, sliced seeded cucumbers and sliced celery tossed with your favorite Asian dressing goes great with this noodle soup dinner. Try topping the salad with rice crackers for extra crunch.
