Vegetarian Fried Tomato Organic Bihun (Rice Vermicelli) Recipe

My aunt gave me a pack of organic vermicelli (bihun) which is suppose to have high fibre content, no preservatives, no additives and no coloring. Anyway, I find that more people are into eating organic food nowadays mainly due to health reason. This organic bihun has a firmer texture than ordinary vermicelli. Therefore before frying them, I have to soak it in water a little longer than normal bihun. I find that organic vermicelli do not turn soggy easily, which makes it easier to handle during frying or cooking.
Instead of frying it with dark soya sauce, I thought why not try something different. I have added eggs and shallots to this dish but you can omit these ingredients if you don’t take them. Here is my recipe for Vegetarian Fried Tomato Organic Bihun (Rice Vermicelli)

Organic Vermicelli, ½ a packet, soak in water until soft
Tomato Sauce, 7 table spoons
Vegetarian Oyster sauce, 1 table spoon
Shallots (optional),3 pcs, sliced
Eggs (optional), 1 pc
Sawi (vegetable, you can use any leafy vegetable), 1 bunch, cut into 1” length
Cabbage, 3 large leaves, cut into small strips
Tomato, 1 pc, cut into 4
Salt to taste

Heat up wok and put in some vegetable oil. Fry the sliced shallots until golden brown. Add in the vermicelli and fry for a short while. Put in the tomato sauce, vegetarian oyster sauce, sawi, cabbage and tomato. Fry for a short while. Add in the eggs and salt to taste. Garnish with parsley and serve while still hot!
