Vermicelli noodles are thin and flexible when cooked and are a popular filling in Asian spring rolls. You may often encounter two styles of vermicelli noodles in the grocery shopping, so what’s the difference? Rice vermicelli noodles are just a tad firmer when cooked, whiter in color and more opaque.
One of their most attractive attributes to both of these styles of noodles is they soften quickly in boiling water in just a few minutes, so they can be prepared quickly. Prepare the boiling water and simply pour it over the noodles that are then ready in just a few minutes. So, what kind of vermicelli can be cooked? Check the recipes below!
