Looking for that quick 6pm dinner recipe for yourself and the kids?

Vermicelli noodles are the small noodles found in many Vietnamese foods or in many Asian foods in general. They are easy to digest as they are high in fiber and due to their small size kids will have no trouble eating them.

There are many variations to the Vermicelli noodles pasta. Many add soy sauce and vegetables with meat, while some like to eat them without any flavoring.

This recipe is a perfect mix of east meets the west!

Small Jar of Turmeric

This is the brand I use as it is tasty and the fact that it comes in a small jar is perfect for those who occasionally use turmeric in their foods or other reasons. Turmeric is also an anticoagulant. In many studies it's said to lower the chances of cancer.

 

Other choice of seasonings

  • If you are not a fan of Jalapenos but like to have something more tangy, try a tangy flavored hot sauce.
  • If you are unable to find a salad with broccoli in it, buy broccoli florets separately and then add them in the veggies.
  • To add a hint of protein, you can top the noodles off with peanuts.

Variations of Vermicelli Recipe Around the World

Vermicelli is a very popular type of pasta used worldwide. For example in India vermicelli can be used to a sweet dish called 'Kheer' and a spicy breakfast/snack dish called 'Upama'. Both dishes are considered healthy. On the other hand, in middle east vermicelli is used by Lebanese. It is added to the rice to make Lebanese Rice Pilaf. Vermicelli noodles are also used widely in Vietnamese foods as a stir fry recipe.

Let us know if you have another variation to these small, tasty noodles!

      Vermicelli has always been common in our household. As traditional vermicelli is made of rice instead of refined wheat flour, it is healthier. This is a great recipe. We make a similar one but add grated cheese while serving. The kids love it.
