Thai Cuisine (Jan. 4, 2010)

My first attempt at Thai turned out pretty tasty. I tried to remember what my brother did when he cooked for us last summer. Here’s the recipe I came up with:

Heat wok to 300-350F and combine the following ingredients:
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. hot mustard
2 Tbsp. rice cooking wine
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
juice of one lime
a little lime zest
1/2 tsp. rooster sauce (hot chili sauce from Asian Market — it has a picture of a rooster on the front; can adjust to how spicy you like things)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp. ginger root, peeled and chopped
1/2 tsp. dried basil leaves (can use fresh if you have it)

Then add the following:
1 c. cubed cooked chicken
1/4 c. edamame (shelled soy beans)
1 tomato, chopped

Finally, add about 2 c. of cooked rice noodles. Add 1/2 c. water to help warm the noodles and gently toss all the ingredients. I happened to have a cup of lemon green tea next to me, so I used that instead of water.

Enjoy with chopsticks!
Love, Melissa
