Recipe by Dee Licious
Recipe from a cooking class my husband and I took in Thailand given by a wonderful chef who has owned restaurants both in the US and in Thailand. She was kind enough to give us her recipes to bring home the phenomenal tastes of Thailand with us. Feel free to add your own favorite vegetables (vary cooking times accordingly) to include straw mushrooms, bamboo shoots, etc. This is a relatively quick and super easy dish and if you like Thai food you are sure to love this recipe!
