Chicken & Vegetables with Creamy Coconut Noodles
Teach your kids about the power of aromatic compounds with this recipe: Adding coconut milk to the broth not only adds subtle coconut flavor, but the fat in the liquid also helps the ginger, lemongrass and basil "bloom," releasing even more tastiness.
Tip: Yes, No, Cilantro: Research shows that some people have a gene that can make them more sensitive to tasting aldehydes, a soapy-flavored fat compound found in cilantro. If this sounds like you, garnish with more basil in this recipe instead.
