Mi Xao Chay Recipe (Vegetarian Soft Egg Noodle Stir Fry) Recipe

I love making noodle stir fry. It may seem a little complicated but if you're methodical, you'll be able to master this dish in no time. What makes this noodle dish special is the use of pineapple both as an ingredient and as a seasoning for the noodles themselves.

First, I prepared the green bean and tofu stir fry and set it aside. The next step is boiling the fresh egg noodles, then cooking the pineapple (trái  khóm in Vietnamese) in a thick sweet and sour sauce. Finally, all you need is to toss the noodles in the sauce and add the tofu and green beans.

Mi Xao Mem Recipe (Vietnamese Egg Noodles) Recipe

Mì xào mềm, as opposed to mì xào dòn (crispy egg noodles) is the Vietnamese version of Chinese chow mein. This dish appears in almost every Vietnamese fast food joint. It usually comes with chicken and seafood such as baby squid and shrimp, but I wanted to make sure the entire family would enjoy the dish as well (half of my family is vegetarian). So this time, I mixed the soft egg noodles with rolled tofu skin and several vegetables.

Living in the Bay Area, we're lucky enough that Asian markets carry a wide variety of fresh egg noodles. I always look for the thin kinds. If you can't find any, you could always boil angel hair pasta. The flavor will be slightly different but still delicious!
