Helpful hints

  • Rice sticks are also known as rice noodles.
  • You can substitute soba, udon, vermicelli or spaghetti for rice noodles. Prepare according to instructions instead of soaking.
  • Add tofu, shrimp or chicken to make a meal.
  • Coconut aminos replace soy sauce or tamari in this recipe to keep sodium lower.
