For the Rice Noodles,

  • 80-100g rice noodles 

Method for the rice noodles,

  1. In a pot, place cold water with a dash of salt and bring to boil
  2. While waiting for the water to boil, dip your rice noodles in cold water for about 5-10 minutes
  3. Once the water is boiling, remove the rice noodles from the cold water and add them to the boiling water; let cook for 5 minutes (or check your rice noodle package in case it indicates otherwise)
  4. CAREFUL! when you place the rice noodles, usually a white foam will form and build up. You need to blow on it continuously to prevent it from spilling everywhere. Keep a good eye on your pot, don't just throw in your soba noodles and leave them. 
  5. At 5 minutes precisely, rid the noodles of the water in the pot, and place noodles back into the now empty pot. 
  6. NOTE: you could substitute rice noodles for soba noodles or any other pasta, just be sure to check the instructions with regards to the time it needs to boil/cook.
