I just landed in Paris after living out in the tropical paradise of Réunion Island. I met a best friend from childhood, called Scout, who came to meet me here from London and the first thing we did after putting down our rucksacks was pop to the local shops and stock up on food.
The great thing about sharing cooking and meal planning with others is there’s lots to exchange and you both come away with new ideas.
We put our heads together to make this deliciously simple Thai dish.
So you will need:
(These quantities serve about 3 people)
A packet of rice noodles
Grated zest of 1 lime
Grated fresh ginger (about a thumb sized chunk)
Half a head of Broccoli
1 big pepper
1 finely chopped chilli (if you can handle the heat!)
Chop the onion into thin slices and start frying it in oil. Put the chilli, ginger and garlic in when the onions are starting to soften. You can add a hint of honey to sweeten it also.
Chuck in the veg, all chopped into thin strips. Once the veg has been stir fried but is still a bit hard, add the coconut milk with the lime zest. Leave it to cook on the hob to simmer for about 10 or 15 minutes.
Cook rice noodles in a seperate pan of boiling water. When ready, drain off the water and mix in with the coconut curry. Add freshly chopped coriander to season.
