Thai Vegetarian Concoction With Thai Green Curry Paste And Rice Noodles

Truth being said I have never cooked Thai food before and have never eaten it either. Today I would like to share with you something I am making up according to my experience in taste. Trust me.... I know it will be good....and perfectly vegetarian...




You will need:
Serves 4

-  250 gr of rice noodles.
-  120 gr of supermarket bought ready made Green Thai curry paste Delaise quality.-  60 gr of home made pesto.

-  Mix all together, reduce heat to minimum.
-  In the meantime your water is boiling, add the rice noodles (5 mm wide) and cook 3 -4 minutes.
 -  Strain noodles, put bowl with Thai curry / pesto mixture and milk, bring to a boil, throw in the cooked noodles.
-  Stir a couple of times, turn off heat and add everything to the green string beans.

Don't forget the jalapeño flakes for hot food lovers.
Serve and enjoy!!  We sure did, it was very good.
