Drunken Noodles

We found this recipe in a book called Vegan Planet. Also known as Pad Kee Mao, this is a South Asian rice-noodle dish not unlike Pad Thai, but where Pad Thai has tamarind and peanuts, this bad-boy uses lots of basil and chilis. It’s delicious. The Thai basil really gives the dish a unique flavour which works great with the tofu, brocolli, and onions. Make sure to add fresh bean sprouts on top for a juicy crunch.

Very quick to prepare, perfect for a weeknight. Head over to Amazon or Chapters (or wherever you buy books these days) and get the book for this and 399 other great recipes.


Butternut Squash Coconut Curry

This is a nice, quick weeknight meal.  Especially in the autumn when squashes are plentiful and cheap, it’s very economical, too.  We added way more (about 1.5 tbsp in total) curry paste than the recipe says, and of course substituted the fish sauce for more soy sauce.

The recipe can be found here.
