picture of lemongrass noodles

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 version right away with ginger, lime and maple syrup.

Now I love my simple recipe. It works as a quick meal or a nice side dish with satay and peanut sauce.
