Sotanghon Guisado (vermicelli)

Another Pancit Recipe………….I really love pancit, for me, any kind of noodles will do. The term pancit is derived from the Hokkien pian i sit  which means “something conveniently cooked fast. I think this dish was introduce by chinese people from our home(philppines) One of my favourite are Philippines’ lomi guisado, pancit canton-bihon, batchoy, pancit bihon guisado and many more. Or might be Asian noodles such as chicken laksa with egg noodles, beef with vermicelli noodles and many more. A buffet menu can never be completed without having a noodles or pasta dish…..So, Whats your favorite noodles?……………….Did you know that most pancit ingredients have a coriander? this coriander leaves gives an aromatic and pungy taste in pancit.  These leaves also have lots of health benefits. To name some, coriander act as stimulants and tonics. They strengthen the stomach and promote digestion, increase secretion and discharge of urine and reduce fever. They act as an aphrodisiac, and help in the removal of phlegm. Coriander seeds reduce fever, and offer a feeling of coolness………..
