Vegetarian Pancit Bihon Recipe Simplified
Filipino Rice Stick Noodles
- 1 pack Filipino Rice Sticks or Bihon
- Shiitake Mushrooms or any mushrooms available
- Soy Sauce to taste
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons of organic coconut oil
- Garlic cloves (as much as you want - we want ours super garlicky)
- 1 cup Water or Vegetable Broth
- 1 Chopped Onion
- small piece minced or grated ginger
- Choice of green veggies such as Pechay or Bokchoy, cabbage (shredded) or even Kale - about 2 cups
- Carrot strips from 1 medium size carrots
- Lemosito or Kalamansi or American lemon
Soak the rice noodles or rice sticks in hot water just to fully cover it until the noodles are soft. Drain and set aside.
In a wok, saute the garlic, ginger and onion in coconut oil until they're just about soft. Just don't burn them.
Add the mushrooms and stir for about three minutes then add the green veggies and stir again.
Pour in the vegetable stock or plain good ole filtered water and bring to a boil. Add the salt and pepper seasonings. Splash a bit of soy sauce to taste making sure the dish is not too salty to your liking.
When the veggies are all tender crisp, add the drained soaked rice stick noodles and stir to incorporate everything nicely.
Add more water if necessary and stir.
Enjoy your vegetarian Filipino pancit bihon simplified without any greasy animal ingredients.
It's clean and tasty. It is vegan.
After eating clean pancit bihon guisado like this often without the meat, I won't go back to that greasy pancit bihon again cooked with animal pieces specially when they taste all gamey with all the bird meat.
The mushrooms is absolutely prefect for this Filipino vegetarian dish.
Other Favorite Filipino Vegetarian Food
Some favorite Filipino vegetarian recipes that I love are the ones that were bathed, cooked and simmered to perfection in lots of creamy organic coconut milk.
Name anything cooked in coconut milk, I'd eat it.
Lumpia - Vegetarian version of the meat filled spring rolls
Pancit Bihon - A plate of yum comprised of rice noodles, mushrooms and other Filipino vegetables
Halo-Halo - this is a famous Filipino dessert that means 'mixed' where you can mix things like candied beans, young coconut flesh, sago and etc. Check out the recipe here.
And a whole lot of other Filipino dish recipes!
Filipino dish recipes are usually cooked with Filipino vegetables, makes sense right? Though, if you live anywhere outside the country you will find substitute ingredients to make your healthy Filipino food.
Visit any Asian grocer in your area and you will find them. Otherwise, if you have the time and space to plant Filipino vegetables, grow them!
