You could use regular coconut milk instead of lite for a richer flavor, but using the light saves a lot of fat and calories. You can use any vegetables in this that you like, and some lemongrass would be good in here too.

This was amazing!!! I love Thai food and I'm a vegetarian so I was afraid the lack of tofu would make the dish less than great but I loved the veggies on their own. More people should really try this. I didn't have all the veggies on hand, I basically used frozen mixed vegetables and thought it still tasted great.

- 1 onion
- 1 large carrots or 2 small carrots, sliced

- 1 cup button mushroom, sliced
