One Pot Thai Pasta Bowl

If you like Thai - you will love this dish!  And, it couldn't be simpler.  It's a one pot meal - place all the ingredients together in one pot, cook for 10 minutes, and enjoy.  It's doesn't get much easier than that!  I made this on a Friday night after a long week at work, and it was perfect.

(Recipe adapted from this one at Your Cup of Cake)

One Pot Thai Pasta Bowl
- 12 oz. pasta (spaghetti or linguine; uncooked)
- 4 cups vegetable stock or broth
- 1/2 cup water
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2" section of ginger root; cut into 1/2" long pieces
- 1 large carrot, sliced into 2" long slices
- 1 red bell pepper; sliced into 2" long slices
- 6 green onions; sliced lengthwise and into 2" long pieces
- 1/2 cup roasted, salted peanuts, plus additional for garnish
- 2 tablespoons peanut butter (creamy)
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon red curry paste (I found this in a tiny jar in the Asian section of my grocery store)
- Juice of 1 lime
- Lime wedges, for garnish
- Fresh cilantro, for garnish

1.  Add all ingredients (except for lime juice, lime wedges, and cilantro) to a medium size stock pot.  Place on stove and bring to a boil over medium / high heat.  Reduce heat to medium / low, and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.  Remove from heat.  If all of liquid is not yet absorbed, cover and let sit, about 5 minutes.  Remove ginger pieces and discard.  Stir in lime juice.

2.  Dish out pasta and top with chopped peanuts, lime wedges, and chopped cilantro for garnish.  Enjoy!

I really loved this dish - I'm putting it on my regular meal rotation list.


  1. I love your photos! You really need to publish a lifestyle book. The recipe looks yummy, although at my house I'm going to have to add some chicken with it for it to be called dinner. lol

    1. Thank you, Tammy - you are so sweet! Chicken or shrimp would be delicious with this.

  2. This looks delish - it's makin' me HUNGRY! I love Thai - will have to try it. (printing it out now!)
