  • 1 (10.5 ounce) package mung bean vermicelli

  • 1 cup dried wood ear mushrooms (tenga ng daga)

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • ½ teaspoon achiote powder

  • 1 ¾ cups chopped cooked chicken

  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce

  • 1 cube chicken bouillon

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 (8 ounce) package shredded cabbage

  • 1 small head bok choy, chopped

  • 1 carrot, chopped

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste

  • 1 pinch chili powder (Optional)

  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, sliced


  1. Soak vermicelli in a bowl of hot water, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain. Cut noodles to desired length; set aside. Soak mushrooms in a second bowl of water; set aside to soften.

  2. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir garlic in hot oil until browned, about 2 minutes. Remove garlic to a bowl and set aside for garnish. Add onion and achiote powder to the saucepan and sauté until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add chicken, soy sauce, and fish sauce. Stir in bouillon until dissolved. Pour in 1 cup water and bring to a boil.

  3. Drain softened mushrooms and cut into 1-inch pieces.

  4. Toss cabbage, bok choy, and carrot into boiling water mixture. Add vermicelli, mushrooms, black pepper, and chili powder. Cook, mixing well, until pancit is slightly dried, about 5 minutes. Transfer pancit to a platter. Garnish with egg slices and browned garlic.


You can use chicken broth instead of water if desired.
