    Kitchen Dictionary: bean thread

    A slender, gelatinous noodle, made NOT from a grain flour but from ground mung beans. Once the noodles are soaked they become soft, slippery, springy and translucent. They are flavorless and readily absorb the taste of their accompanying sauce or broth. The noodles are commonly used in soups, stir-fries, salads, desserts, and even drinks. The dried noodles can also be deep fried for a crunch garnish or bed for sauces.

    plural: bean threads
