Vegetable Egg Vermicelli. Delicious, flavourful stringy noodles paired together with some veggies and eggs. Perfect for lunch or dinner.
This is a recipe passed down to me from my grandmother. I remember when I was a very young girl and she would make this dish and it was one of my favourites.
She would crisp up the noodles. The black pepper also accentuates the taste so don’t skip out on that. My grandma wouldn’t add the same veggies in her version but I did for extra protein, nutrient and fibre.

How to keep your noodles chewy?
The key to keeping these noodles springy is to pre-soak them in in warm water for 5-7 minutes and strain them.
I would not suggest boiling your noodles as this can cause them to become soggy since you’re cooking them again in the pan.
For this recipe
I always use avocado oil for high temperature cooking as it’s neutral in taste and healthier for the skin. I avoid vegetable oil at all costs because it’s hard to confirm if it is sourced from Oil Palm Trees. The Oil Palm Industry is associated with many global issues like climate change, habitat loss, deforestation and animal cruelty. Usually palm oil trees are burn down the trees to harvest that oil. By burning down trees, all the greenhouse gases that have been absorbed over thousands of years are sent back into the atmosphere deteriorating our ozone layer by ten fold, furthering global warming. So this is why I avoid vegetable oil in the event that in contains Palm oil.
