Carrot Som Tam

Shredded carrot most closely matches the texture, if not the colour or flavour, of green papaya. This recipe is similar to one that has proved successful at the restaurant chain in Thailand where I used to work, and also utilizes ingredients easily found outside of the country. You can of course substitute fresh string beans for the long beans.

Black Pepper Noodles

Just in case you were thinking that every meal at my place is a gourmet feast, I thought I would post a recipe that represents a more typical lunch or dinner for me. Instant noodles have become something of a staple in modern Thailand, since they're quick and easy to make. During the big Bangkok floods of late 2011, it was instant noodles that supermarkets couldn't keep on the shelves, not rice.

Corn and Black Bean Salad

This recipe is my own creation, although it's simple enough I wouldn't be surprised if something very similar already existed. My inspiration for this dish came from a small side salad I had a few years ago, I think on a flight. It was just corn and a little diced capsicum with a balsamic dressing. It was quite easy to reproduce, and while it was fine for a side dish, I wanted to create something a little more substantial I could use for a light meal or snack.
