The Noodle Sensation Of Ho Fun

Noodle dishes are a typical meal throughout the globe, primarily because of their nutrient-dense value and taste sensation. Of all the noodle dishes, Ho Fun is a famous Chinese noodle made from rice that’s easy to make and eat with a wide range of recipes. Below will highlight the critical aspects of the noodle, including what it is, a recipe, and where you can order it in Edmonton.



  • 8 oz wide rice noodles (approx 1/2 standard package)
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil (can sub vegetable oil)
  • Two garlic cloves minced
  • Three green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 cup shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 cups baby bok choy, chopped
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce (sub tamari for gluten-free)
  • 2 tbsp vegetarian oyster sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil

How to Make

  1. Cook the rice noodles in a pot of boiled water for two to three minutes until they’re still somewhat firm. The noodles should be hard in the middle and not cooked entirely through.


  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan at medium-high heat. Add the garlic and green onion and cook for one minute. Add the shiitake mushrooms and cook for another couple minutes; then, at that point, add the bok choy and cook for another two to three minutes.


  1. Bring down the heat to medium, add the noodles, beansprouts, and sauce to the dish, and combine everything. If the noodles start to stick to the pan, add a little sprinkle of water and mix.

Although both dishes aren’t necessarily unhealthy, Lo Mein is typically better than chow fun since the noodles aren’t fried. There’s less oil used in the recipe, resulting in a better dish overall.
