Sweet Potato Vermicelli Noodles
An Oriental noodle made from sweet potato starch. It is a thin long, translucent noodle with a chewy texture. They are similar to cellophane noodles, except they are slightly thicker and tougher.
To prepare: Place the noodles in a heatproof bowl, pour boiling water over the noodles, and let them stand for 10 to 15 minutes, until noodles have soften.
Cooking Time: When the noodles are added to a stir-fry or to soup, further cooking is accomplished during the cooking of the dish.
When adding to a dish in which the noodles will not receive additional cooking time, add the noodles to boiling water and cook for 3 to 5 minutes before adding to the dish.
