An incredible easy and foolproof way to cook your rice vermicelli.
  • 1.5L water
  • 150g frozen peas
  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced
  • 100g rice noodles
  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 100g snow peas, chopped
  • 2-3 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • Nuoc mam cham, to serve
  1. Weigh 1.5L water into your Thermomix jug and insert the rice basket.
  2. Weigh peas and carrots into rice basket in Thermomix bowl. Cook for 12-14 minutes, 100 degrees, speed 2. Note: The important bit here is that the water reaches 100 degrees AND continues cooking at 100 degrees for a couple of minutes BEFORE the rice noodles go in.
  3. Add rice noodles and cook a further 2 mins and 30 seconds, on 100 degrees, speed 2.
  4. Once timer goes off, use the hook on your Thermomix spatula to lift out the rice basket. Immediately rinse noodles and veg well with cold water.
  5. Tip noodles and veg into a bowl, and drizzle with 2 Tbsp sesame oil. Mix well, then cover bowl with a plate or lid while you prepare anything else or set the table.
  6. Right before serving, stir through the raw snow peas and spring onions. Serve with a healthy drizzle of Nuoc mam cham (or a good quality Tamari, for kids who don't like spice).
