How To Cook Pancit Sotanghon| Pancit Recipe



Pancit sotanghon or pancit bihon... which pancit variant do you prefer?

Pancit Recipe

They seem to be alike; but they are not. The first one's made of cellophane noodles, glossier than the latter; as the second one is made of rice noodles. I, for one, like to cook with sotanghon noodles over the other. It’s just less soggy to work with. It doesn’t break easily as compared to the bihon. As to its taste however, I like whichever’s presented on the table.

This pancit sotanghon recipe is just like any other… with the addition of one particular ingredient – the kale. The vibrant green of this vegetable brings nice colors and texture to the mix. Also, it’s one superfood so it definitely increases the nutritional value of the pancit.

Here’s how I do pancit sotanghon at home.
