  • 3 tablespoons of butter or peanut oil or sesame oil
  • 3/4 cup of chopped scallions + more for garnish about 2 bunches
  • 6 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari


  • Soak rice noodles in almost boiling water for 4 minutes until al dente. Drain then rinse with cold water to stop cooking and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet on medium to high heat. Add scallions and garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes until garlic is fragrant.
  • Add coconut sugar and mix in until it's all incorporated. Add soy sauce and let simmer together for 1 minute.
  • Add noodles and continue to cook for 5-7 minutes until noodles have fried and absorbed the sauce.
  • Plate, garnish with additional scallions, and serve!
