I haven’t eaten Asian food in a while, and I’ve really missed the amazing spicy flavours, so I thought I’d make a Thai inspired noodle dish that I found in one of my favourite cookbooks; I thought the spices would go well together, and the peanut butter would make it a healthy, filling meal which would prepare me for going out tonight! Is it really weird of me that I always get really hungry at 2am whenever I go out?
Anyway, I’d definitely recommend this dish as it’s so quick and easy, and the peanut satay sauce is a really lovely contrast to the fresh green vegetables, and is sure to keep me going into the early hours of the morning… Do you guys have any sure-fire filling meals that you make for yourself before nights out? I’m planning on doing a really good breakfast tomorrow morning if I’m up for it, so I’ll be sure to let you know if filling my belly with loads of lovely Thai food led to a better night!
Hope you like the recipe :)
