Jiangxi rice vermicelli, also known as mi fen, is a type of thin, white, translucent noodle made from rice flour. It is named after the area where it is produced: Jiangxi province in China which is famous for its high quality rice vermicelli. Jiangxi rice vermicelli is thicker than other types of rice noodle and has a springy, bouncy texture that holds up better to sauces, stir-frying, and precooking.
Uses: This rice noodle is raw unlike most instant varieties and should be boiled until a noodle cut in half reveals little to no white. Use this noodle as a bed to put sauces or toppings on. Eat it with soup for a flavorful and satisfying chew.
