Pad Woon Sen : stir fried mung bean noodle

In Thai we call it Pad-Woon-Sen.  This dish you can find in a lot of Thai restaurants.  This is another favorite dish of American people, because it’s not spicy and tastes good. My hubby and a lot of Americans I know love this dish.  This is a low-cab dish because Woon-Sen or mung bean noodle is made from mung bean that has protein in it not carbohydrate like normal noodle or pasta.  Mung bean noodle some people call clear noodle or glass noodle because the noodle itself is clear just like glass.  It has no taste by itself, but absorbs sauce very good.  You can find it in an Asian grocery.  Usually this dish you can add anything in it, meat or vegetable depending on what you like.
