Rainbow Thai Salad with Crunchy Peanut Sauce Video Recipe
Rainbow Thai Noodles Video Transcript
Hi, Jess in the Rada Kitchen, thanks so much for joining me. Today we are going to make a Thai noodle salad. We are going to dress it in a crunchy peanut sauce. This dish is as flavorful as it is visually appealing.
We’re going to use the Rada Vegetable Peeler to peel our carrots. We’re going to julienne our peppers and carrots. I’m going to use a red and a yellow pepper. I’ve cut my carrot in half and am going to cut into strips with my Rada French Chef knife. I’m going to cut them just a little bit bigger than a matchstick. I’m going to come through with my life and put them into my bowl.
We are using a red and yellow pepper. I’m going to cut them in half and remove the seeds. Then I’m going to put the open side down and come through with my knife, cutting nice, thin strips. This is going to add a ton color and sweet, crunchy flavor. Into our bowl.
Now I have some fresh broccoli. I’m going to remove the end piece and then section off some of those florets. I’m going to trim them in half, make them as big or small as you like, just try to keep them uniform. We are going to toss all of our veggies in a pan with some peanut oil and do a real quick sauté to allow them to tender up.
Here I have some purple cabbage. I’m going to take the end off and cut it in half. And I’m just going to come down the middle and make nice, long strips. Toss right in our bowl.
So let’s make our sauce. First, I’m going to take ¾’s cup of natural peanut butter and drop it into my food processor. Next, ¼ cup soy sauce and I’ve added about half a teaspoon of sesame oil. You can use either sriracha or chili sauce in here. Use your discretion depending on how you want it. Now I’m going to add honey. You can also use agave nectar. About ¼ cup. Lastly, I have some lite coconut milk. About ¼ cup. If you don’t like coconut milk, you can substitute water or chicken stock.
Now we’ll add some freshly grated ginger root, about a 1 ½ inch section. This has a spicy flavor to it and is great for medicinal purposes. 2 garlic cloves. And now 1 lime with the zest, and we’ll cut it in half and juice it. Try to get the zest of the whole piece of fruit here, being sure not to get the rind. You just want the outer layer that contains those fragrant oils. Another tap. Cut this in half with my Rada Cook’s Knife and add that juice. Let’s mix up our sauce.
So here I’ve brought my salted water to a boil. To this I’m going to add my pasta. I’m using organic linguini, but you can use whatever you like. Now in another pan I have some coconut oil going at medium-high heat. I’m going to take the veggies and put about half in the pan. We want them to cook to be tender crisp so they retain all that beautiful color.
So we’ve now been stirring with my Rada Non-Scratch Spoon. The veggies are getting nice and tender. We’re going to pull this batch off the stove and add the next one to the pan. So now the second batch is done, so we’re going to add this into our bowl and toss this with our sauce and noodles.
So here in my big pot I have those noodles cooked to al dente and I’m going to add to this those veggies, just toss those in. We’re going to incorporate it all with our delicious peanut sauce. I have reserved about ¼ cup of the water that we boiled our noodles in. So if this is too thick when tossed, we can thin it out with that water. So now I’m going to toss all of this lovely pot together to make sure that everything is evenly coated. Then we’re going to top it with chopped peanuts, cilantro, and chopped onions.
So here I have a heaping bowl of Thai noodle pasta ready to go, except I’m also going to add some chopped green scallions, chopped peanuts, and fresh cilantro. And you are ready to serve.
