Glass Noodle Stir-Fry

by Jana Harvey on April 13, 2011

Four 1 3/4 oz packages glass (cellophane) noodles
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp. asian sesame oil
6 oz sugar snap peas, cut into thin matchsticks (about 2 cups)
2 small carrots, cut into thin matchsticks
1 red bell pepper, cut into thin matchsticks
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 small yellow squash, cut into thin matchsticks
1 small zucchini, cut into thin matchsticks
4 scallions, thinly sliced
Salt and freshly ground pepper
2 Tbs. rice vinegar
2 Tbs. fresh orange juice

In a large bowl of hot water, soak the glass noodles until pliable, about 15 minutes. Drain well, shaking off any excess water. Using kitchen scissor, cut the glass noodles into 4-inch lengths. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the vegetable oil with sesame oil. Add the snap peas, carrots, red pepper, red onion, yellow squash, zucchini and scallions, and season with salt and pepper. Stir-fry the vegetables over high heat until lightly browned in spots but still crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Add the soaked glass noodles to the skillet and stir-fry over high heat until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the rice vinegar and orange juice and continue stir frying until the glass noodles are translucent, about 2 minutes. Transfer the noodle stir-fry to plates and serve hot.
