Appearance and cooking of soy noodles
Soy noodles can be easily distinguished from other noodles because they are transparent white in color, and once cooked their texture is slightly softer than traditional noodles. You often find them in the Asian kitchen department together with other noodles, but the thin noodles called vermicelli are the most versatile in the kitchen and find space and numerous combinations even in our typical cuisine.
As for their cooking, however, this is very simple and fast, and can be done in many ways, based on the time you have available and the recipe you want to try. You can scald them in boiling water like wheat spaghetti, you can try them sautéed or grilled, or au gratin them in the oven together with other stringy and tasty ingredients. A trick we want to share with you: if you cook them in a typical way, that is, in boiling water, you can stop them from cooking by immersing them in cold water. Your soy noodles will not be too overcooked, but perfect to season and enjoy.
And if you want to taste oriental soy spaghetti, don’t forget to accompany them with an exquisite sweet and sour sauce and toasted almonds: you will get a perfect dish for a themed dinner or a special occasion.
