Silk Road Peanut Noodles


I have this beautiful cookbook called "Silk Road Cooking" and I've only made a few things from it. I always look through it and am inspired by all the exotic flavors but never get around to actually cooking from it. I decided to open it up today. This recipe is not too far from home for me because it is very Thai in style. It's the "Vietnamese Peanut Sauce" recipe which for me feels more Thai because of the thai chilies, coconut milk, peanut butter, lime juice and curry in it. I tossed ramen noodles and freshly cut vegetables with the sauce and garnished with Thai basil.
