Cellophane Noodles

Often referred to as glass or bean thread noodles, cellophane noodles are composed of mung bean starch and are used in a variety of dishes across Asian cultures — including soups, salads, spring rolls, and the like — where their mellow flavor, glossy appearance, and springy, slippery texture can shine. Sold in a dried, brittle form, they're often reconstituted by soaking in hot water — no boiling necessary.
