Pancit Bihon

Pancit Bihon is a classic Filipino noodle dish. It’s pronounced pan-seet bee-honBihon is a kind of rice noodle. It cooks fast so be sure not to leave it under the boiling water for too long. In fact, making Pancit Bihon is quick and delicious. All you have to do is stir fry the vegetables, blanch the noodles, and combine the two. I made it extra healthy by adding a non traditional but super nutritious ingredient, Kale. I also made this version slightly to the sweeter side by incorporating hoisin sauce.

Here’s how to make it:
