One pot linguine – Phat Thai style

One pot linguine phat thai style recipe

The one pot technique is a method i recently tried for the first time, and now absolutely adore! It’s so simple and quick and the pasta is full of flavors. And you only need to clean one pot afterwards! I love phat thai noodles, so I mixed typical ingredients of this dish in the pasta pot.

For 2 portions

250g linguine (the cooking time for rice noodles is too short for the veggies)
80g peanuts (roasted and salted; I used a sort with chili and salt)
1onion or 3 spring onions
1 red capsicum
2 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 piece of ginger
3 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon sweet soy sauce
1 teaspoon red chili flakes
4 limes (from 2 only the juice)
3 cups vegetable broth
2 tablespoon peanut butter
Peanuts, chili and lime for the decoration, optional fresh coriander

1. Clean carrot and capsicum and cut in thin stripes. Peel ginger and garlic and chop finely; peel onion, cut in half and slice finely. Clean 2 limes and cut in half.
2. Place all ingredients in a large pot (except sesame oil, juice of 2 lemons and peanuts).

Close the lit and bring to a boil, then let it simmer for 11 minutes until the pasta is aldente and the liquid reduced to a creamy sauce. Stir every 2 minutes to avoid that the pasta gets sticky, add peanuts after 5 minutes cooking time.
