Lee’s Maplewood Thai-Ish Dinner
This is a tasty Thai-inspired meal that Lee made up.
1 bag of coleslaw mix
1 package noodles (whatever dry Asian style you prefer. These were cellophane rice noodles. Next time I will probably use a thicker rice noodle)
1tbs soy sauce
1tbs peanut butter
2tbs rice vinegar
1/2 tbs dark sesame oil
1/4 tsp sriracha
1/2 tsp ginger
1 tsp garlic
Dehydrate the coleslaw mix – it gets really small.
Pre-break the noodles into bite-sized pieces (shorter than the shortest dimension of your bag). The noodles are needle-sharp and will poke holes in the bag very easily.
Mix the sauce and put in a container of your choice. We used a squeeze tube, which worked nicely.
Containerize the toppings – we twisted them into a bit of plastic wrap.
Put everything into a freezer Ziplock-type bag, and write how much water you’ll need (based on the noodle packaging).
Remove the sauce and topping containers.
Add sauce to bag (with coleslaw and noodles)
Add water. Mix, mix, mix.
If you poked holes all over your bag, transfer everything to bowl before too much drips out.
Garnish with toppings.
This was very yummy. Pretty spicy, adjust the seasonings to your taste. Dehydrated cabbage stays crunchy when it's rehydrated, which is a nice change.
