I first noticed lemongrass at vegan restaurant MyThai in Boston and I was blown away by the wonderful fragrance of the lovely lemongrass noodles I ate there.
Back home I started working on my own recipe right away.
Now I love my simple lemongrass noodles recipe. It works as a quick meal or a nice side dish with satay and peanut sauce.
- 2 stalks lemongrass
- 1 onion chopped
- 1 piece of ginger chopped
- 1-2 garlic cloves chopped
- 1 carrot sliced
- 250 g (9 oz.) noodles
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- fried shallots optional
- Cut lemongrass: cut off root, green part and hard outer leaves. Chop up white part.
- Cook noodles according to instructions.
- Sauté carrot slices in a little plant oil at high to medium heat, then add lemongrass, ginger, garlic and onion.
- Combine maple syrup and soy sauce, mix with drained noodles and add to the pan. Stir-fry for a few minutes.
- Serve with lime, cilantro and fried shallots.
