Another quick lunch recipe with vermicelli - this time playing with more colors!
The vibrant purple comes from anthocyanins from the red cabbage and acts as an antioxidant and fights free radicals in our body. Red onions are also cooked until transparent - mixed with apple cider and mirin, we create an all natural sweetener for the dish - letting the vermicelli to soak up all the flavour and benefits! The added Edamame adds a bit of extra color to match.
