Here’s a dish that I’ve made a few times since the start of summer in order to help chase the heat away – Cold Refreshing Summer Noodles.
It’s light, slightly sour and has a hint of spiciness to it. And I absolutely love the crisp mouthful of cold noodles that I get with each bite. What makes it even better is that it only takes 10 minutes to make! Another Quick Meals recipe for you to try.
I prefer using mung bean noodles for this recipe because the silkiness of the noodles along with its bouncy and chewy texture completes the taste. Rice or glass noodles are a close second. But if you’d like to try with any other noodles, please feel free!
