Chinese Vermicelli Salad

I found this Chinese Vermicelli Salad in the Chinese Vegetarian Cookbook.

As I explained in the main page on low fat Chinese food, its recipes are great, but do not contain the nutritional data you need for a low fat weight loss program.

But not to worry! I'll add the data eventually. For the time being, though, I decided to include the recipe as is.


1 and a half bunch of Vermicelli noodles (bean thread)

2 or 3 carrots

1 celery stick

2 jalapeno chilis (peppers)

2 green onions

1 tsp salt

1 Tbsp light soy sauce

3 Tbsp vinager

4 tsp sugar

3 tsp sesame oil

This is what you do

Boil some water in a kettle, and place the dry noodles in a big bowl. Pour the boiling water and leave the noodles soaking till soft and tender. Drain them and rinse them with cold water.

Peel the carrots and cut into small sticks.

Gut the green onions, celery and jalapenos into 1 1/2 inch strips.

In a bowl, mix the soy, sugar, vinegar, and sesame oil. Mix well.

Mix the noodles, green onions, celery and carrots, and mix with the sauce when ready to serve.
