Making Thai Vermicelli Noodle Salad -- Yum Woon Sen

Thai Glass Noodle Salad is fresh and flavorful, and it’s easy to make too. This week Lions have learned another delicious Thai dish which they can show cook easily at home and share with families. A. Nae from Cooking Academy has chosen this dish particularly because it is a popular summer snack to bring friends and families together in Thai food culture.

  • Lions are sitting in front of the demonstration counter to watch and listen closely to A. Nae’s instructions about the materials and preparation steps of cooking, with a panoramic view from the mirror image on top.
  1. Soak vermicelli noodles in hot boiling water until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Drain and rinse the noodles under cold running water. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the lime juice, fish sauce and sugar. Add the noodles and toss until the noodles are fully coated with the sauce.
  3. Add onions, chilis, tomatoes, fresh lemonade and peanuts; toss to combine.
  4. Mix with already cooked minced pork on top.

After the demonstration, the lions are assigned into pairs of 2 working in their own stations to make Yum Woon Sen. The engagement of making their own food makes each team so dedicated and involved. Cutting, slicing, smashing and mixing, they took each step seriously and enjoyably as they have been taught, with a good passion of creation.

It’s time to enjoy their own Yum Woon Sen now! What would taste better than same self-made snacks after the hard works in the afternoon? Everyone is so proud and happy to show their dishes with big smiling faces.

Keep the utensils nice and clean after eating. Well done, Lions, for being open-minded and principled!
