not really – i bought the groceries on sunday after church, but only cooked today.
sweet potato noodles (aka a type of cellophane/glass noodles). they absorb a whole load of water! had to transfer pots after a while.
it was a simple stirfry with onions, mushrooms, diced tomatoes and sliced pork. after seeing how much water the noodles absorbed, i made it soupier than a regular stirfry, so that the dish wouldn’t clump up. i then threw the noodles in so that i could do a seasoning and taste test.
i didn’t imagine at all that it would fill the whole pot. the noodles swelled to about three/four times its uncooked size!
it was simple and good, and the mark of success came when my mum went for seconds. yay.
