  • 160 grams sotanghon
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 block tofu cubed
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ medium onion minced
  • ¼ cup chayote julienned
  • ¼ cup green beans julienned
  • cup carrots julienned
  • 3-4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 ½ tablespoons salt

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 250 grams pancit canton noodles
  • quarter size cabbage chopped


  • Fill a medium-sized bowl with water and soak the sotanghon (cellophane) noodles for 30 minutes. It’s important not to soak longer than this time or noodles will get soggy and clump together.
  • Pre-heat pan over medium heat, about 2 minutes,  then add oil and fry tofu until it turns golden brown.
  • Once tofu is golden brown, add garlic, onion and saute until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  • Then add chayote, baguio beans, carrots and sauté for about 2 minutes.
  • Add water, soy sauce, salt, vegetarian oyster sauce, sesame oil, pepper and mix until just combined, then cover for a minute.
  • Mix in pre-soaked sotanghon noodles, pancit canton noodles, cabbage and cook for about 1 minute. Best served immediately.
