Rice noodles vs cellophane noodles vs bean thread

Tammy | Jul 21, 2000 04:40 PM

A friend at work just returned from a glorious cruise and she loved a lunch entree that featured clear cellophane noodles. She asked if rice noodles & cellopahne noodles (and bean thread noodles are one in the same. If not, can you substitute the rice noodles for either one? Different properties? I don't want to steer her wrong.

She also mentioned having tried cooking cellophane noodles a number of years ago, and ended up with a gummy, pasty ball of yuck. I know that we have some extremely knowledgable folks that can help in answering the questions & some prep info if the 3 noodles above vary.

Thanks very much!
