The cuisine of Thailand is rapidly gaining world popularity. It typically has a sweet/sour/salty taste. Look for these rice noodles and other specialties exported by Thailand at an Asian market or the ethnic section of the grocery store.
Let children help when cooking the rice noodles. They will be fascinated to see the noodles become transparent during cooking.
A stir-fried vegetable, such as spinach, broccoli or green beans, would be a nice side dish with this entree.
