I Would Like To Experiment With...

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I need suggestions. I've started buying the boxed Thai food and powdered mixes, but I need help adding in variety to the stir fry.

I've used broccoli, carrots, bean sprouts, cashews, peanuts, celery, onion, bell pepper, eggs, and mushrooms in different combinations. Any other suggestions?

Also, I like my Thai food to have that "pop" to it...not salty or sweet, but kind of hot I guess...people who love Thai food will know what I'm talking about. What spice is that? :huh:

I made pad thai the other night; it was pretty good. And I made a stir fry that was WAY to salty.

I'm not a person who likes "out of the box" food very much...most of the time I like to add ingredients or make it from scratch. I just feel like there are other ingredients and spices that I could use to add variety to my asian meals. I'm having a mental block (anyone surprised?) :rolleyes:

Thanks for helping! -Julie

Endometriosis- DX'd 5/07

Gluten Antibodies- "negative"...don't know exact numbers, am highly suspicious...

DXed celiac 12-19-07 via genetics/elimination diet- DQ2 allele

Brother with Celiac, aspergers...his tests were all negative (he didn't have genetics done), including endoscopy, but he definitely is at the least gluten intolerant...highly suspect my mother has it as well- she has hyperthyroid, fibromyalgia, hemochromatosis, and now colon cancer, and she has been weak and exhausted and just generally sick. She's going to get tested.
