This colorful noodle bowl makes a light, healthy lunch or dinner that will satisfy your Thai takeout craving.

Unless you’ve been completely checked out for the past few years, you’ve noticed that the humble bowl has been elevated to more of a “large holy grail” when it comes to healthy cooking, fast-casual dining and all-in-one meals. Cookbook author and chef Robin Asbell is on it with a new collection of recipes that has everything you want (and more), all in one simple vessel. 

Coconut milk is the magic ingredient in this bowl; it makes a sauce in one quick step. Just heat the coconut milk with some curry paste and a few other ingredients, and suddenly you have a rich, complex feast of Thai essential tastes. Whole-wheat linguine, or any noodle, is fantastic when coated with this lush sauce and topped with crunchy vegetables.
