Menu for the week of Nov 2

Pumpkin Curry

Pumpkin Curry
  • 2 lbs pumpkin
  • 14oz (1 package) Firm tofu, optional
  • 4 cups (2 cans) coconut milk (can use light milk, and/or sub in a cup of water)
  • 3-5 tablespoons Vegetarian Red Curry Paste
  • 8 kaffir lime leaves
  • 2 chili peppers (fresh red thai, or 1 jalapeno)
  • 2" fresh galangal (peeled and thinly sliced), or 2 T galangal powder (or ½ equivalent ginger)

We used a marina de chiogga pumpkin, but any firm, yellow-flesh, slightly sweet/nutty pumpkin will do.

Coconut Sticky Rice with Mango

Mango Sticky Rice

While a perfectly ripe mango is delicious on its own, coconut sticky rice makes a marvelous pairing. The coconut sticky rice can also mask a less-than-perfect mango to make a delightful treat. Adapted from my favorite Thai food blog, She Simmers.

Serves 2-4

1/2 cup uncooked sticky rice, cooked
1/2 cup coconut milk, or whatever you have leftover in your can from whatever you made earlier
1/4 cup or less sugar, to taste

Herb Salad with Thai Beef or Chinese Sweet Sausage

Thai Beef Salad

This recipe is a great way to use leftover spicy tamarind steak. Serve with steamed white rice.

2 tablespoons fish sauce (sub soy sauce)
½ teaspoon sugar
2 shallots, sliced thin
1½ cups fresh mint leaves, chopped
1½ cups fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
1 birds eye chili, stemmed and finely chopped
1 seedless English cucumber, diced
1 tablespoon white rice (optional)

Thai Iced Tea

Thai Iced Tea

If you've ever been to Thailand (or really, ever eaten in a Thai restaurant), you've had Thai iced tea. And you know it is delicious. And you know it's great with spicy foods... or other foods... or as dessert... or just because.

Bon Appetit now tells us how to make it. I repeat the recipe twice in two different proportions because, frankly, it's dangerous to have 8 servings of Thai iced tea around the house.

For 8 servings:
10 star anise pods
2 tablespoons sugar
1 vanilla bean
15 tea bags

Black Rice Salad with Mango and Peanuts

Black Rice with Mango Salad

This Bon Appetit rice salad was easy and delicious. It also could easily be made vegetarian (and is already gluten free) by omitting the fish sauce or replacing it with soy sauce. The fish sauce smell can be a bit off-putting on the first day, so if you're not a fan, just skip it.

Serves 2-4

1 orange
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 tablespoon fish sauce (optional)
1 cup black rice (preferably Lotus Foods Forbidden Rice)
