I'd rather not have to drench them in oil. Any ideas to keep my rice noodles separated?
Sent by AshleyEditor: Ashley, our biggest tip for you is: Make sure you're not overcooking the noodles. As you note above, the best way to cook thin rice noodles is to simply submerge them briefly in hot water. Drain and rinse with cold water. They will finish cooking in your stir fry or in the hot sauce. But if you overcook them they will turn gummy and get much more clumped up.
It is normal, though, for them to clump up to a certain extent; tossing them with your sauce in your stir fry should loosen them as they get coated with the sauce.
Readers, any tips on this for Ashley?
