- 1 cup water
- 2 tablespoons fish sauce
- 1 can coconut milk

6-8oz sliced mushrooms

In a large pot over medium heat, add the oil, garlic, ginger, lemon grass and Thai red curry paste. Fry for 5 minutes, until fragrant.
Add the veggie broth, water, fish sauce, and coconut milk. Bring to a boil, simmer for 15 min. After 5 min add noodles and cook till tender (8-10 min.) taste the broth for salt and adjust seasoning accordingly. divide among serving bowls, add a squeeze of lime juice and your garnishes, and serve.
Cook the pasta according to the directions on the package, adding a generous tablespoon or so of kosher salt to the water as it cooks. Just before the noodles are done cooking, add the broccoli to the pot. Let the broccoli boil for about 30 seconds and then drain everything into a large colander. Rinse well with cold water.
Stir together the mayonnaise, vinegar, salt, pepper, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add the cooked pasta and broccoli to the bowl and stir well to coat. Add the cucumber, pepper, and onions and stir again. Taste and adjust seasonings, if needed. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Stir again just before serving. Enjoy!
If you forget to toss the broccoli in the boiling water at the end of the pasta’s cooking time, you can also steam it in the microwave. Place the broccoli in a glass bowl along with a tablespoon of water. Microwave for 60-90 seconds, until the broccoli is bright green and barely softened.
Cook the noodles like you normally would – according to the package directions – when the noodles are about halfway cooked, crack in the egg and poach it in the broth over low heat, basting with broth or covering with a lid briefly to help it cook through.
Carefully pour the lot into a bowl, add the butter and any veggies you like, and immediately top with the cheese slices. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, green onion and Sriracha to taste and serve immediately.
