This pumpkin noodles with minced pork is one of my favorite noodle recipes. I love to order this at my favorite Taiwanese noodle house.

As simple as it appears, pumpkin rice noodle is actually a very delicious dish. It’s a comfort food to many people, especially the Taiwanese people. The rice noodle is a delight to eat, soaking in the sweetness of the pumpkin as well as the savory tastes of the seasoning sauces. For this recipe, you will need fresh pumpkin as canned pumpkin just won’t work. Instead of regular pumpkin, you can also use kabocha squash for this recipe. Try it, I am sure you will be delighted with the amazing great taste.

    This reminds me of my ex-colleague who occasionally made a very similar dish. She always shared some with me. I miss her and this dish so much. Alas, my hubby doesn’t like pumpkin. I’ll try this again in the soon future and see if his tastes have changed. :-)

    Just to let you know that I really like your new cookbook!

    I read the instructions for your pumpkin rice noodles. I am confused.
    When do you add the bean sprouts to the wok? I would appreciate clarification.

    Thanks

    Just tried this recipe and loved it! Even the kids ate it! And my friend, Carolyn – who is your friend too, came over and had some too! Love your recipes!

  4. hi!

    sorry, maybe this is obvious but do i use uncooked pumpkin or precooked pumpkin. and also, the brand of rice noodle i have takes a long time to cook when its boiled. will it cook the same if i throw it in dried? or would it be better to pre boil in this case?

    thanks!
