Stir-Fried Rice Vermicelli

After a long day at work, sometimes you need a 30mins or less recipe to quickly put together and call it dinner. I picked up some rice stick vermicelli at a recent supermarket visit and it came in handy this week. Rice stick vermicelli brings back childhood memories for some reason, I guess I ate it a little too often and when I picked up the packet, I went back in time. You might think working with rice stick vermicelli is hard, I use half a packet cause its just the two of us, so trying to divide the vermicelli can be a challenge without it flying all over the kitchen. A little patience helps and remember! don’t start cutting the vermicelli before soaking it – its easier to work with it once well soaked
