Vermicelli

Though they share a similar dainty size and shape, vermicelli should not be confused with cellophane noodles. Mild in flavor, opaque, and tender, these white noodles are generally sold dried and are a key component to Vietnamese vermicelli bowls (like pictured) where they're boiled, then typically served with a sweet rice-wine-vinegar-based dressing, nuts, herbs, and meat.
