Soba Noodle with Lemongrass and Thai Basil Chicken + Tofu
I rarely post our lunches, usually they are a mish-mash of leftovers...
But lunch today actually looks better than our dinner last night. I served the chicken on jasmin rice with greens and it was pretty plain. Chicken was tasty and ever so juicy, but I should have given a little kick to the rice... Note to self.
Lemongrass and Thai Basil Chicken
2 lemongrass stalks, tender part chopped
5 cloves garlic
1 Tbsp ginger
2 bunches thai basil
Juice of one lime
Canola oil, about 2 Tbsp
Mix all ingredients in a food processor, add just enough oil to form a paste, and coat the chicken or tofu. Bake at 375 for about 30 minutes. This was enough for 3 pieces of chicken + 4 cubes of tofu.
In our salad: orange pepper, mint, thai basil, sambal, lime juice, sugar snap peas, sprouts, green onion.
