I was so blessed to be sent a product sampling box from Thai Kitchen!

Thai Basil Broccoli Beef Over Purple Corn Coconut Noodles  Gluten-Free
adapted from Martha Stewart
4 ounces Thai Kitchen purple corn and rice noodles
1 can (13.5 ounces) coconut milk
Coarse salt
2 tablespoons teaspoon fish sauce
2 tablespoons gluten free soy sauce -or- braggs amino acids
2 tablespoons sweet red chili sauce
1 tablespoon canola oil
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 jalapeno chiles, seeded and sliced into 2-inch matchsticks
1 1/4 pounds beef steak cut into strips
1 cup loosely packed torn fresh basil leaves
1 cup chopped broccoli
Lime wedges

In a medium saucepan, combine noodles, coconut milk, 1/2 cup water, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cover and bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook
until noodles are tender and liquid has been absorbed, about 7 minutes. Don't be afraid of the color, it is from purple corn!
While noodles are cooking combine oil, fish sauce, soy sauce or braggs, and sweet chili sauce into a large pan and bring to medium high heat. 
Add your beef, and garlic 
When beef is halfway done, add in your broccoli and peppers. Cook for 2 minutes. Toss in basil the last 30 seconds and stir. 
Serve over the purple coconut noodles with lime wedges. Squirt on the limes before eating.
