One of our favorite things to do around here? Travel and bring the flavors of our travels back home. That's why we're launching a new series with our friends at KitchenAid called the Global Kitchen. With each story, we'll share a recipe inspired by one of our adventures.
The first post is all about Thailand since we've had a major crush on the country ever since we visited a few months ago. There's a lot of reasons to love it but, obviously, we always come back to the food. And when it come to the food we're partial to the classic meat salad known as larb. This Northern Thai dish was all over Isaan when we visited and each place we ate made their own version.
We took that to mean we could make it as spicy or fresh as we'd like. Just FYI that, to be totally traditional, you'd mix toasted ground rice into the final dish. If you're so inclined, go for it, but we have to say we like it just as is.
Oh, and this version is healthier than most and easy enough you could make it for a weeknight meal. But, if you're like us, you'll likely be making it for everything from a girls night in to your next dinner party because it's got tons of flavor and pretty healthy. For all the intel including the full recipe, head over to KitchenAid!
