Sweet Curried Rice Noodles + Shrimp and Roasted Vegetables is a take on Bangkok Curry that is sweet and savory and will please any crowd!
Goal: re-create one of my favorite take-out go-to’s: Noodles & Co.’s Bangkok Curry. Goal accomplished. You guys, these noodles are YUMMY. The sauce – I could drink it all by itself, but won’t, because it tastes so damn good wrapped around the rice noodles and mingled with the broccoli, mushrooms, cabbage and shrimp. It is healthy, delicious and will leave you wanting more….
The sauce has a coconut milk base with red curry paste and roasted red chili paste and then onion, garlic, ginger, sesame oil to go with it. Added sugar provides some sweetness. The veggies are simply roasted/broiled in some olive oil and salt and the shrimp (which I bought pre-cooked) can be heated up on in a skillet (or could probably be thrown in with the vegetables if you wanted one less dish). The key is to cook your rice noodles perfectly and serve right away with the sauce – otherwise, rice noodles can tend to get a little mushy and sticky. Not cool. Be vigilant with your rice noodles….
It turned out amazing and I seriously can’t wait to make it again…… Next time I get a craving for Noodles, I am whipping up a bowl of this.
