In the Kitchen: One Pot Pasta - Thai Style!

Last week, I posted a recipe for an incredibly easy dinner using only one pot. This week, I decided do a Thai spin on the recipe.

I n g r e d i e n t s 
  • 4 cups vegetable broth, salted
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter (I used crunchy)
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tbsp tamarind paste
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 inches of a ginger root
  • 1 large carrot, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into thin slices
  • 3 green onions
  • 1 cup roasted peanuts
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • Small bunch of cilantro
  • 1lb bean sprouts
  • 12 oz vermicelli rice noodles
  • Juice of 2 limes
D i r e c t i o n s

s t e p 1
Soak the vermicelli noodles in a bath of cold water. Add all ingredients into a large pot, with the exception of the noodles and bean sprouts. Turn your stove on to high and uncover once it has reached a hard boil.

Boil on high for 10 minutes. During the last 2 minutes, put the vermicelli in (after draining the water it was soaking in). After the 10 minutes are up, serve immediately! Enjoy!
