The idea for creating a vegan, gluten-free version of Pancit Bihon while living at a missionary college in Virginia, several of the students and staff were from the Philippines and I would have them over for meals in my home. I loved to make dishes that they were missing and Pancit Bihon was one of their favorite recipes that I made.

Other Missionary Student Inspired Recipes Were:

Japchae (Korean Stir Fry Noodles)

Vegetable Patties

Homemade Vegan Sushi

African Braised Kale And Tomatoes

Mashed Potatoes And Caramelized Onions

How To Cook Pancit Bihon (Filipino Noodle)

Pancit Bihon (Filipino Noodle) is very easy to prepare,  First, prepare the noodle by basically soaking in hot water for 5 minutes, Chop up fresh vegetables, the vegetables are stir-fried and then the drain noodles are added to it.

Baked tofu is used in place of the traditional meat and/or egg. However, this dish tastes delicious without tofu though, so feel free to leave it out.

Mung bean noodles purchased from the oriental market can be used or even rice pasta or you can purchase rice vermicelli from the international aisle at Walmart.
