Thai Marinade Broccoli

One of the things I love about marinated vegetables is the endless variations that are possible. It is a wonderful way to include raw veggies in your meal no matter what your theme is.

This variety uses the amazing flavors used in Thai cooking. I used Thai green chilis which are pretty spicy. Feel free to use a milder chili if desired. I served this over cooked soba noodles for a partially raw meal. The flavors were as lively as the colors of the dish. Use as a main dish or a side dish.
