Stir Fried Glass Noodles Recipe (Pad Woon Sen)


Share This Recipe

This is a very low calorie and healthy stir fry recipe. The main ingredient is glass noodles which are made form mung bean flour and are a healthy source of carbs. They are ideal for soaking up flavours, so taste great.

We have used chinese cabbage, tomatoes, and carrots in this recipe, but you could experiment with other vegetables if you prefer. The final dish only takes around 10 minutes to make once the noodles have finished soaking, so its a great recipe to make when you are short on time.
