Rice noodle bowls are simple and kid-friendly

America's Test Kitchen on

Rice noodles are noodles … made out of rice! They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and are made to float in soup or soak up sauce. Some of the most common are rice vermicelli (super thin and delicate), rice sticks (straight and flat, used in this noodle bowl), and chow fun (wide, flat, and chewy). Rice noodles are especially popular in Vietnamese, Thai, and Chinese cooking. They also come together in a simple, kid-friendly dish.
