Green Bean Thread Noodles Soup with Fish Ball and Minced Chicken

Bean Thread Noodles or Mung Bean Vermicelli (also known as glass noodles or cellophane noodles) are not made from a grain flour but from ground mung beans.When dry these noodles are translucent, very thin and wiry like nylon fishing line, and difficult to handle. But when pre-soaked they become soft, slippery, and easier to cut.Made from green mung beans, glass noodles are a good source of selenium and iron, especially for vegetarians. Bean thread noodles should be considered for inclusion in a gluten-free diet.

1/2 pack of Green Bean Thread Noodles,soak in hot water for 10-15 minutes before remove water after it's soft
