Recipe by sofie-a-toast
My boyfriend from south east asia said this is closer to traditional than most of the yellow curry versions we see in the US. No meat in this one but I'm sure you could add! Feel free to mix up the veggies too. The first time I made this, I used broccoli, snap peas, and baby corn instead. Although, the peppers are traditional. Adapted from Pinch of Yum

I selected this recipe for Culinary Quest 3. I'm so glad I did. It made a light but delicious lunch. The flavor of the sauce was great and I enjoyed all the stir-fried vegetables with the noodles. I plan to make this again.
