How to Cook Sotanghon Perfectly

Sotanghon or cellophane noodles are a type of transparent noodle made from the starch of mung bean, cassava or potato starch. It is one of the noodles that I like, that's why  I cooked this for our breakfast today, tastes so good, mmmmm I want more. In cooking this noodles no need to simmer it for a long period of time or else it will be gooey.

Ingredients for 4 servings:
1 onion (minced)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
150 grams sotanghon
1 small head broccoli ( separated)
6 cups boiling water
4 leaves of cabbage ( sliced)
1 medium size carrot
100 grams de-shelled shrimps
100 grams chicken breast (slice to your desired size)
1 tablespoon soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste

1. Saute the garlic and onion then add the chicken, stir until the pinkish color is gone then add the shrimps and continue to saute for few seconds then add salt and pepper, soy sauce and the boiling water then simmer for 2 minutes. 
2. Add the carrots and broccoli then simmer for 2 minutes then add the sotanghon and cabbage and simmer for 2-3 minutes and turn off the heat.No need to soak the sotanghon in the water before adding it.
3. Sprinkle with chopped spring onion then serve. Yummy!
