What are rice noodles?
Rice noodles are just what you’re thinking they might be. They’re made from rice flour and water. Sometimes cornstarch is added to improve the texture of the noodles. They’re most commonly seen in East and Southeast Asian dishes. Dried rice noodles are the easiest to find (in your market’s Asian products aisle).

The vegetables added to this stir fry are snow peas and red bell pepper. These are two great veggies for stir fry since they need very little cooking time to become softened and ready to eat. Plus, most people are pretty okay with eating snow peas and bell peppers. So this dish will be appealing to the general population.
