      yum! I used mirin instead of sugar and sambal oelek instead of chili flakes and it came out really good. Also added some more peanuts for the taste. Thanks!

      Mmm, I loved this! Served it over whole wheat angel hair pasta, and enjoyed it hot and cold! Thanks so much Redsie!

      Thai basil is not a common ingredient here in the country, but when I saw some in the market I knew I had to try some. This is certainly not the pesto I'm used to, but I think I'm going to be making this a lot in the near future. I served this up with the Thai noodles mixed with slivered red peppers and scallions. Great flavor, thanks!
