Stir-Fried Vegetarian rice Noodles -Hawker Style

Rice noodles are a weekly fix in my kitchen ,If there is any leftover kids take it for lunch at school. This simple stir-fry is a dish to throw together when you want something like fried rice but don’t have any cooked rice at hand. Begin soaking the noodles before you begin to chop the vegetables, and they’ll be ready to stir-fry when the other prep is done.

Coconut milk brings distinctive flavor and creamy heft to these rice noodles, which are stir-fried with tri color bell peppers and  cabbage adding beautiful color to the dish .  Be generous when you're seasoning the dish. Tongs are a good tool for stirring and tossing the noodles, but a long-handled spatula will also work.
