    Default Tapioca noodles

    I went to the S.E. Asian market today; bought some Rooster Sauce, chilli
    and garlic paste, and a few other odds and ends. One of the things I
    got was some very thin dried tapioca noodles, wadded up into 2 oz.
    nests. They look like bean threads... Is there any particular way I'm
    supposed to use them? I was planning to soak them in hot water, then
    add them a the last minute or two to stirfry. Or are these supposed to
    be used in soup?

    I know I can use them however I want, but the tapioca part throws me.
    Maybe I should use them for pudding?

    To me tapico noodles are just one of those wheat-free options I buy when
    I see them in stores. I treat them as if they were rice noodles - They
    cook much faster than wheat noodles but otherwise act in the place of
    wheat noodles.

    That's how I use them. When I have leftover stir-fry to take for lunch,
    I'll soak a nest with extra hot water from the teakettle at breakfast.
    When it's time to pack lunch, I'll drain off the water, add in the
    stir-fry, and away I go.
