If Latvian married a girl from Thailand, probably this is how the food tasted like. Why? Because this recipe includes ingredients which are very typical for Thailand and Latvia.
However, I have to mention that you can upgrade this recipe by adding whatever you want to add, for example, sweet pepper, mushrooms, onions, meat or shrimps. Would love to hear how you love to cook this food!
This recipe is suitable for vegans and for those who follow gluten free and lactose free diet.
What are the ingredients?
-1,5 rutabaga or swede (cut into medium cubes)
-a half of a cabbage (cut into medium pieces)
-soy sauce (30ml)
-4 garlic cloves (cut into slices)
-100 ml water
-30ml olive oil
-ginger powder or “a thumb” of a fresh ginger
-coconut milk (at least 100 ml)
-20g of a syrup, honey or sugar (I do not suggest sugar)
-sweet chili sauce (~100 ml or according to your taste)
What do you have to do?
-Heat the pan and add ginger and garlic. Fry it for a minute.
-Add soy sauce and water. Put swede and cabbages on the pan. Stew them under the cover and stir every couple of minutes. Stop stewing them, when they are firm, but not too firm.
-While the cabbage and swede is cooking, boil water. Put rice noodles in a bowl and pour the hot water over the noodles. Put a lid on the bowl and keep the noodles in the hot water for 10 minutes (if those are the noodles with the width ~3-4mm, if those are the noodles with width of 1ml, then it should be okay with 5 minutes). After, get rid of the water and let the noodles dry a bit.
-When the vegetables are soft and the noodles are ready, but them together and add sweet chili sauce and syrup. Put the lid on and let it warm up for some minutes on a low heat. Add the coconut according to your preference – on the frying pan or when the food is already served on the dish.
-Put some seeds or some greens on the food and it will be ready to be served!
