Rice Noodles with Thai Pesto

(Pad Ka Pao)

The flavors in this dish pack a mouthwatering punch. Thais traditionally use a mortar and pestle to make this sauce, but a blender or processor works just as well.


1/2 cup fresh cilantro

1/2 cup fresh basil

1/4 cup vegetable oil

2 tbsps sugar

1 tbsp minced garlic

1 tbsp minced fresh galangal or Chinese ginger

1 tbsp Thai Kitchen® Spicy Thai Chili Sauce

1 tbsp fresh lime juice

1 tsp salt

4 ozs Thai Kitchen® Thin Rice Noodles


PLACE cilantro, basil, oil, sugar, garlic, ginger, chili sauce, lime juice and salt in blender or food processor; cover. Process until pureed, scraping sides occasionally.

BRING large pot of water to boil. Add rice noodles; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until noodles are tender but firm. Drain well. Immediately place warm noodles in large bowl. Add pesto; toss to coat well.
