Yum Ruam Mit VS Regular Thai Glass Noodle Salad

The key ingredient in Yum Woon Sen, or Thai glass noodle salad, is the bean thread or glass noodle. Cooked shrimp and ground pork serve as the primary proteins in the dish. Meanwhile, Yum Ruam Mit typically contains similar ingredients, although excluding the glass noodle is acceptable. Additionally, Yum Ruam Mit often incorporates other proteins and like mixed seafood, Asian meatballs, and Vietnamese sausage. It also contains more vegetables such as seafood mushrooms, and white wood ear mushrooms. Consequently, Yum Ruam Mit may sometimes be considered a variation of Yum Woon Sen.

What is Glass Noodles?

Glass noodles, also known as bean thread noodles, are made from mung bean starch. Sometimes it also contains potato and tapioca starch making the noodle clear. They are translucent and have a chewy texture when cooked. These noodles are gluten-free and commonly used in Asian cuisine. The best way to prepare this noodle is to soak it in the room temperature water at least 8 -10 minutes before cooking.

  • 4 tbsp palm sugar (or regular sugar or sweetener of your choice.)
  • 4 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 4 chopped chilies (1-4 chilies)
For the salad
  • 1 small bundle bean thread
  • 1/2 cup ground pork
  • 1/2 cup seafood mixed (optional)
  • 1 tsp bouillon powder (optional)
  • 1 bundle seafood mushrooms (optional)
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 yellow onion

Instructions
 

Prepare Ingredients
  • Soak the bean thread noodles in room temperature water for 8 to 10 minutes. While they soak, prepare the vegetables, and boil some water.
  • Clean and shred the carrot. Wash and trim the ends of the seafood mushrooms. Chop the onion, tomato, cilantro, celery and chilies.
Make the dressing.

Cook the protein and mushrooms.
  • Boil water in a pot. Cook the bean thread for 1 to 2 minutes until softened. Remove and transfer to the mixing bowl. (You can also use scissors to cut the noodles a few times before cooking so that it is easy to serve more than 1 portion.)
