Thai Red Curry Black Bean Noodles

Welcome to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama + Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl to create awesome healthy recipes each week! This week’s theme is Food Blogger Love!

Hope everyone’s been doing well! I finished my first week of night shift today and have essentially turned nocturnal for the time being (because why not).

It’s been harder to find time to blog lately, what with working nights, pending presentations, graduation festivities, weekend hiking trips (:D..), notes to write, etc. Tis a good thing my best friend and I recently started doing online cooking dates! (You can check out all the other stuff we’ve made together here!) I bring to you…these Thai Red Curry Black Bean Noodles from the west coast!

(…and now I’m officially hungry again.)

The black bean noodles are from a brand my best friend/swolemate discovered called Explore Cuisine! (P.S. No, this isn’t a sponsored post, but if they’d like to sponsor me, I’d be all for it! 😛 )

They also have an edamame + mung bean fettucine, edamame spaghetti and soybean spaghetti that I’d like to try out sometime. Such a great way to change up pasta, and hooray for that extra protein! <3

This and next week = full of graduation festivities, so I’ve been giving up sleep because nowwww’s the time to celebrate the awesome-ness of our graduating third-years! We’re gonna miss them, but 2 of them are actually still going to be here and another 2 will still be in the area, so at least there’s that!

We have informal graduation this afternoon and a BBQ at one of their houses tomorrow! Next week, there’s graduation on Thursday evening and a pool party at one of our attending’s houses on Friday. (Who needs sleep?!)

    This so yummy, I’ve never heard of that type of squash . . . can you just get it at a regular market?

    1. Farrah

      Hmm, I think it’s a little harder to find at regular markets but sometimes it shows up there! (I usually get mine at Asian grocery stores if you have any around you–it tends to be cheaper there too)!

    I’ve had lentil pasta before! It can be hit or miss and kinda grainy, but I don’t mind it. And you know I love a veggie packed broth bowl!

    I tried black bean noodles once – I think curry is a perfect match for them.
