Lately, I’ve been trying to be more pro-active about bring my lunch to work. Not only does it save me money by not having to buy from our commissary or eat out, but I get to try some new recipes while I’m at it. This week, I decided to try a Spicy Thai Noodles Recipe that I pinned awhile back. The description said it was the “Best Pinterest recipe I’ve tried so far!”
These noodles did not disappoint! They tasted restaurant quality and reminded me of the meals I had in Asia. A few modifications, I only added a few pinches of the crushed red pepper (I’m a wimp when it comes to spicy) and I added some frozen vegetables, it’s easier for me than cutting up all the toppings it listed (I don’t have a food processor either).
To save time, I prepared the sauce while the noodles were boiling. It doesn’t specify in the recipe, but I recommend not adding the soy sauce and honey directly to the oil. I started adding it and it steamed and crackled. So, whisk the honey and soy sauce separately, then add in the oil. I didn’t have the tools to sift out the crushed red pepper flakes, so that might have been the issue as well.
I can’t wait to eat this for my lunch tomorrow! The recipe made a large batch, so I will be able to knock out a few meals with this one. While the blogger recommends eating them cold, I will probably heat them up. I definitely recommend this one!
