Additional protein options you can toss/serve with the noodle:
Pan-fried extra firm tofu
Shredded chicken meat
Pan-fried egg/ soft-boiled egg
Fresh chopped scallions
Fresh cilantro leaves
Red chili flakes
Cook the noodle or pasta. Avoid overcooking. Rinse with cold water and set aside.
Prepare the dressing by mixing all the ingredients
Place the cooked pasta/noodle in a large serving platter. Add in the bell peppers, bean sprouts and pour in the dressing. Toss the noodles to make sure the sauce are coating the pasta/noodle. Have a taste and add more hoisin sauce and/or soy sauce to your taste. Sprinkle the crushed peanuts followed by the scallion and cilantro leaves if using. Sprinkle those red chili flakes on if you need extra heat. You are all set to go.
This noodle is best served at room temperature or cold. I love it cold, especially in a warm summer day, it's pretty refreshing. If you like it warm, don't rinse the pasta or noodle after cooking and toss with the sauce and need to be served immediately
