Vegan Pancit Bihon (Rice Noodle Stir Fry)

by Aliza de Lima

2min read

Jazz up your lunches and dinners with an easy, flavourful summer noodle dish. Pancit bihon, a Filipino-style rice noodle stir-fry, is a staple for any gathering. Made with springy light noodles, coated in lemon-soy sauce and topped with crunchy refreshing vegetables, get ready to meet a new favourite.

Pancit, the local word for noodles, is one of the most popular and versatile dishes in the Philippines, and is not confined to a specific region of the country. Whether it’s sold as street food, or served at parties, it’s engraved in traditional Filipino cuisine, often associated with long life and good luck. The word itself didn’t originate from there (pian i sit means 'something conveniently cooked' in Hokkien), it was carried over by Chinese merchants and traders and over the years has become a staple food of the country. You’ve heard the background, now it’s time to get cooking!
