Minimal cooked veggies, lots of noodles and I control the textures!
It's also a great dish to make for 1 or for 12 with a variety of spice levels. Me likey the spicy!
I'm Listening to: Take On Me - A-HA
3 tsp. fish sauce
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 ground dried chili peppers
ground black pepper - a pinch or so
1 shallot, minced
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. sirachi
1/2 package Thai rice noodles
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1/3 cup tofu - extra firm (Optional)
1-3 green onions sliced for garnish
1 1/2 c. bean sprouts
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts sliced
Soak the noodles according to package while getting together the other ingredients ready. (picture = boring so I'm not posting this one)
Rinse your bean sprouts too.
Get your shallots, green onions and garlic ready
One of my favorite new toys is my mortar and pestle and while I used whole peppercorns and chilies and ground them up you can use chili flakes and cracked pepper if you want.
In a few tsp. of oil cook the chicken in a frying pan until no longer pink and set aside. *I like to add a bit of soy sauce while cooking them but that's optional*
