  • Yield: Makes 6 to 8 cups; 6 to 8 servings


  • 12 to 14 ounces dried rice noodles (mai fun, rice sticks, or rice vermicelli)


In a 6- to 8-quart pan over high heat, bring 3 to 4 quarts water to a boil. Add rice noodles and stir to separate; cook until barely tender to bite, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain. If not using immediately, rinse well to keep noodles from sticking together, and drain again.
