this flavorful, thai shrimp noodle bowl only takes one pot and 20 minutes to cook.
Day after day, I come to love the one pot meal more. It always amazes me how much I hate doing dishes. I mean, I love making the food and eating the food, but when it comes to cleaning up. I could really do without. So I continually try to use less dishes – especially when they can’t go in the dishwasher.
This meal was my attempt at recreating the thai shrimp bowls at Panera, but it slowly morphed into this flavorful, creamy noodle dish. And, I’m so happy that it turned out the way it did.
I know the ingredient list may seem long, but, I promise, if you used prepared ginger and garlic, you only need to chop 3 things. I used a lot of basic ingredients – including this new Swanson broth that I found at Walmart that’s infused with ginger and lemongrass and some shallots – to create a unique flavor profile that blends beautifully with the creaminess of the coconut milk. It’s dreamy. Then I topped it all off with a little fresh cilantro, just because.
