250g (9oz) 5mm (¼in) rice noodles
3 spring onions (scallions) finely sliced
½ Tbsp salt
½ red capsicum (bell pepper) finely diced
3 Tbsp honey or date puree
3 Tbsp sweet chilli sauce

1. Bring some water to boil in a pot and cook the noodles for 8 minutes or until just soft, but not mushy. Rinse and drain well.

3. Serve garnished with mung bean sprouts and coriander.
This dish is traditionally served with chicken - however, you can also serve this dish with some fried egg strips or tofu on top to make it a complete meal.
You can serve with lemon wedges to squeeze over the noodles.
