1. Peanut Curry — Place coconut milk, peanut butter, Tamari, cayenne powder, ginger, garlic and salt in a blender and blend until well combined. You shouldn’t have any ginger or garlic pieces left. Set aside. Place a large pot on medium heat. Once hot, drizzle sesame oil and spread it around evenly. Add cumin seeds and cook for 1 minute. Mix in onions and cook until onions are golden-brown. Add blended coconut mixture and mix well. Cook for 30 seconds to a minute and mix in veggies and black beans. Bring to boil and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook for 10 minutes while stirring every 3 minutes. When ready, remove from heat, stir and cover the pot again for 10 minutes. Serve with Blue Butterfly Pea noodles and crispy mushrooms. Garnish before serving.
2. Blue Butterfly Pea Noodles — Follow your preferred method to cook rice noodles. Add Suncore Foods® Blue Butterfly Pea Powder to the water before adding the noodles.
3. Crispy King Oyster Mushrooms — Prep mushrooms and set aside. Combine flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and salt. Mix in water to ready the batter. Place a pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, drizzle a generous amount of oil, to shallow fry the mushrooms. Dip the mushrooms in batter and place them on the pan. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 2 minutes on both sides, until the batter is brown and crispy. You should see any raw batter spots remaining. Serve with peanut curry and noodles.
