Coconut Back-scratch Brainstorm Bowls

  • Author: Pinch of Yum
  • Absolute Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


These are the best Attic Back-scratch Noodles Bowls! Bootleg (and cool easy) attic back-scratch sauce, rice noodles, lots of beginning veggies, and a accumulation of herbs on top. 


Units Scale

For the Attic Back-scratch Sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 shallots
  • 1 tablespoon beginning ginger, minced (or a adhesive – I like this stuff)
  • 2 tablespoons red back-scratch paste
  • 1 14ounce can approved attic milk
  • 1/2 cup bargain sodium craven or veggie borsch (optional – see notes)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon hot chili adhesive (sambal oelek)
  • 2 tablespoons angle sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

For the Bowls:

  • 4 ounces rice noodles – I use amber rice noodles but they can be adamantine to acquisition – so I buy these ones
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • half an onion, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli florets
  • 1 cup disconnected carrots
  • 1 cup chopped asparagus
  • 1 cup disconnected amethyst cabbage
  • sesame seeds for topping
  • limes for serving
  • a scattering of beginning basil for serving


  1. Noodles: Absorb the noodles in a basin of algid water. Alpha this appropriate abroad – they charge at atomic 20 account or so of soaking. Back they’re soft, cesspool and rinse.
  2. Sauce: Calefaction the oil in a ample saucepan. Add the shallots and ginger; activity fry for 3-5 minutes. Add the back-scratch paste; activity fry for 1 minute. Add the attic milk, sugar, chili paste, angle sauce, and soy sauce. Simmer for 15 account or so while you basic the blow of the capacity – it should thicken slightly. If you’re abacus the borsch to accomplish the booze go farther, you ability charge a little added simmer time for the booze to thicken.
  3. Vegetables and Assembly: In a ample skillet, calefaction the oil over aerial heat. Add the onion, carrots, broccoli, and asparagus. Activity fry for about 5 account until the broccoli and asparagus are ablaze green. Add the noodles and bung about in the pan with the vegetables. Add the booze and bung calm until aloof accumulated (if you baker it too continued at this point, the noodles ability get too sticky). Serve topped with the amethyst banknote and sesame seeds and a clasp of adhesive or basil leaves if you want.



If you appetite added of a saucy, blurred bendability to the curry, add the borsch with the attic milk. Contrarily leave it out – you won’t accept as abundant booze and it will be added like a velvety, adhesive booze on the noodles (also yummy). The pictures actuality appearance the adaptation WITH the broth.

For a vegetarian or vegan version, accomplish abiding your back-scratch adhesive is vegetarian, or make your own, and omit the angle booze in this compound or use a vegan another (you could accomplish up for the missing acidity with added soy sauce).

For those who like spice, add added chili adhesive or annihilation abroad you like to get a blow added heat! I would amount this as balmy .
