Asian rice flake noodles are delicious in soups and stir-fries. I love to make them for Summer and Winter. The big flat noodles resemble Mexican tortillas. In Mexico a similar soup is made using corn tortillas and vegetables. I have many Asian markets around here that carry a variety of noodles. I prefer to shop at Asian markets when purchasing noodles. These noodles are egg free and are made from rice or beans. Good for diabetic and gluten-free diets as well as Vegan.
