Spicy Larb

Recipe by Topher

A larb is a spicy Thai appetizer. This is for tofu but can be easily substituted with my personal preference of ground chicken or even turkey.

This was so yummy!! I added chopped peanuts, red bell pepper and some chopped green onion --all of which worked marvelously! I'll definitely make this again!
