>But, if you can’t find Thai basil
A good substitution for Thai basil is 75% Italian basil and 25% mint. Sounds weird but works great in Asian dishes.
I realized I was pregnant eating this dish 😂. I had never before been able to eat an entire tray of basil noodles from my local Thai shop. One day I was just so, so, so ravenous I devoured the entire tray in five minutes flat. My husband was clearly so surprised (we usually share it) but didn’t say a word. I started to wonder where to is newfound appetite came from, later turns out I was one week pregnant!
Something I like to do when I make this (I eat this almost twice a week), is serve it over some rice and then also some chopped cabbage. If you make it spicy like me, the cabbage adds some good healthy volume to the dish but also is great to provide some freshness to the heat!!
Yay thank you for this! Making this next week! My partner and I like to do theme nights where we pair a meal with a board game or a movie/TV show that all have a similar theme. We’re going to make this for supper and then play Herbaceous (the card game). Get it??? Because basil???
