Thai food and Vietnamese food are really quite similar. My friends from the Philipines also report that Filipino food is more similar to Spanish food. As in Spanish Tortilla or Spanish Paella. That's why our friends from the Philipines brought pork adobo & mussels in saffron to last weekend's Super Bowl Sunday.
So I found this Swanson Thai Ginger Flavor Infused Broth at a grocery store over the weekend! I didn't hesitate to buy it! I decided to use it in place of the instant ramen noodles that I will no longer buy because of the TBHQ that they use in instant ramen - scary because my husband works in the oil industry processing fuel, and TBHQ is this petroleum based product that people put in food. He recently alerted me that I needed to research this ingredient that you can find on the list of ingredients of ramen, Cheez - its, and many other commonly consumed snacks and cereals. My findings....no thank you!
And that's all I have to say about that!
- 1 carton of Swanson's Thai Ginger broth
- 1 package of shirataki noodles
- 1/2 pound of shrimp, cooked & chopped
- Herbs for garnish: red fresno peppers, chives, cilantro
- Lime and/or fish sauce to taste
- Heat the broth.
- Add the noodles & shrimp.
- Add garnish.
- Season with fish sauce or lime as needed.
My daughter treated her soup like pho and put some hoisin in it. Instant & easy without the TBHQ!
