This popular Filipino noodle dish, called Pancit (pronounced "PUN-SIT"), is surprisingly simple to make and full of flavor. It's also super healthy!!


  • 8 ounces rice noodles
  • 3 teaspoons sesame oil - divided
  • 1 package - 15 ounce extra firm tofu, drained and cut into 1 inch pieces and pressed with paper towel to remove all moisture
  • 1 white onion - peeled and diced
  • 4 garlic cloves - minced
  • 2 large carrots - grated (about 1 cup)
  • 3-4 cups chopped green cabbage - about 1/2 head
  • 2 cups baby broccoli florets - cut into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger - or 1/2 teaspoon dried ground ginger
  • 1 veggie bouillon cube - optional
  • 3/4 cup unsalted vegetable broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground sea salt
  • black pepper - to taste


  • Place the rice noodles in a large bowl; cover with warm water and let sit. When the noodles are soft, after about 20 minutes, drain and set noodles aside.
  • Heat 2 teaspoons sesame oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the tofu and sauté until browned, about 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the tofu from the wok. Reduce heat to medium.
  • Add the remaining 1 teaspoon of sesame oil to the wok. Sauté the onion and garlic for 2 minutes or until onion is translucent. Add the carrots, cabbage and broccoli. Stir fry until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the tamari, ginger, veggie bouillon cube, vegetable broth and sea salt. Stir until the bouillon cube is dissolved. Add the cooked tofu, rice noodles and stir to combine. Remove from heat. Best served immediately. Stays fresh in the fridge for a couple days. The noodles will soak up the flavor over time so you may need to season before serving.
  • This recipe makes about 10 cups pancit. Serves 8 (1 1/4 cup) servings.
