Feed Your Body Friday: Coconut Curry Noodle Bowl
This recipe is comfort in a bowl! The combination of coconut milk, curry paste, pasta, and vegetables causes an explosion of flavors that make us travel to Thailand while sitting comfortably in our home and without any jet lag!
For this recipe I used brown rice vermicelli noodles, to have a more nutritious bowl, but you can use white rice pasta or just long pasta like linguine or spaghetti. You can also use whatever vegetables you want, the important thing is to use the sauce with coconut milk and curry paste as the base of your sauce.
Try this bowl tonight for some wholesome food that will impress your tastebuds.
