Stir-Fried Rice Noodles

After a brief soaking, rice noodles are ready to be tossed into a quick stir-fry for a noodle dish that gets to the table in record time. Feel free to make the dish with different vegetables or omit the eggs to make it vegan.



Ingredient Line: 
6 oz. rice sticks or rice vermicelli
Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. toasted sesame oil, divided
Ingredient Line: 
2 large eggs
Ingredient Line: 
¼ tsp. white pepper
Ingredient Line: 
½ lb. asparagus, trimmed and sliced diagonally into 1-inch pieces (2 cups)
Ingredient Line: 
7 oz. snow peas, trimmed and sliced lengthwise into ½-inch-wide strips (2½ cups)
Ingredient Line: 
3 cloves garlic, minced (1 Tbs.)
Ingredient Line: 
¾ cup low-sodium vegetable broth
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. low-sodium soy sauce
Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. sriracha sauce
Ingredient Line: 
3 green onions, thinly sliced (⅓ cup)


1. Soak rice sticks in large bowl of hot water 8 minutes. Drain well.

2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tsp. oil in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Whisk eggs in small bowl with 2 tsp. water and white pepper, and season with salt, if desired. Pour eggs into skillet, and swirl pan so eggs cover bottom in even layer. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, then carefully flip omelet. Cook 1 minute more, then transfer to cutting board, and slice into strips.

3. Heat remaining 1 tsp. oil in skillet; add asparagus and snow peas. Stir-fry 3 to 4 minutes, add garlic, and cook 1 minute more. Whisk together broth, soy sauce, and sriracha in bowl. Add mixture to pan; bring to a simmer. Stir in rice sticks, and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed. Mix in egg strips and green onions.

Comments on this Recipe

Just made this tonight. Unfortunately it was a huge failure in our household. The sesame oil was very overpowering and it was just "uneventful".


The problem with rice noodles is they are all made with white rice. No fiber, no nutrients. I feel these are just empty carbs. I haven't been able to locate any made with brown rice.

I had always thought that toasted sesame oil should be used for flavoring not for stir frying.

I tried this recipe tonight using a variety of different vegetables. While I'd agree there's not a lot a flavor to the broth and rice noodles -- it was a great way for the fresh vegetables to shine through.

Upped the sriracha and soy sauce. Turned out nicely.

Oh...also added tofu and a little nutritional yeasst for extra protein.

Great recipe!


Very nice. .I amvegan and i love this mmagazin. ..
