Something I enjoy doing is stocking my pantry full of essentials. Knowing my kitchen typically has all the Asian spices, herbs and veggies necessary for preparing a healthy meal, I tend to purchase canned foods that serve multiple purposes, like coconut milk and chicken broth.
Chicken broth is wonderful for making soups, boiling vegetables and adding flavor to rice and other grains. I also like to thicken it up with cornstarch for main courses that need a bit more sauce. As for coconut milk, you’d be surprised at the options. Use it in desserts, instead of milk, to impart a tropical and sweet flavor. In terms of savory, curry is what comes to mind.
I’m sharing a Coconut Curry Noodle Bowl recipe to show you how both come together to create a perfect summer meal. Despite this dish being served warm, the lime juice paired with red curry paste and coconut milk keeps it light and refreshing. I also topped the bowl with tons of fresh herbs, shredded chicken and shrimp for a filling finish.
