  • 600 g noodles
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 300 ml hot water
  • 2 teaspoon soya sauce
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 4 spring onions white and green portions separated
  • 3 garlic cloves sliced
  • 400 g Sprout rinsed and drained
  • 80 g Basil


  • Remove the fresh rice noodles from the package and cut them into 1 ½ inch wide strips
  • If they were refrigerated, let them come up to room temperature and loosen them in some hot water
  • If you are using dried rice noodles, follow the directions on the package to cook them
  • You can also soak them in hot water until softened and re-hydrated––about 15 to 20 minutes
  • Drain thoroughly
  • There should be no visual moisture on the noodles
  • In a small bowl, dissolve the brown sugar in the hot water
  • Mix in the fish sauce (if using) and soy sauces
  • Set aside
  • Heat your wok until smoking, and spread 2 tablespoons canola oil around the perimeter of the wok
  • Add scallion whites and garlic and Thai basil (optional) if you have some
  • After 10 seconds, add the softened noodles
  • Your wok should be screaming hot now
  • Continue to toss the rice noodles for 30 seconds to warm them up
  • Next, stir up your soy sauce mixture and pour it over the noodles
  • Continue stir-frying for 1 minute until the noodles are well coated
  • They should get a good smoky sear on them
  • Next, add the mung bean sprouts and green portions of the scallions
  • Stir-fry for 1 minute, until the bean sprouts and scallions are wilted
  • Plate and serve with your favorite hot chili oil
