Thai Noodles

chiliesWai!- Hello in Thai. I am about 5 days into cooking Thai food. Coconut cream, coconut milk, fish sauce, peanuts, chiles- if these ingredients entice you then you will not be disappointed. The complexity of these flavors create bold tastes with just a few ingredients. Simple to make and perhaps more importantly easy to get from stove to table in about 30 minutes. I will probably encounter recipes that might take longer but for now I am trying the easier ones so that I can get the hang of new ingredients and a new way of global cooking. Here is a recipe you will like and super easy to make- Thai Noodles.
