You can get several size boxes of fresh, organic produce delivered. It takes out a lot of the friction of reducing health risks. It’s also really fun, we enjoyed the anticipation. You get this big box of stuff you can’t find at a lot of supermarkets and it’s fun not knowing exactly what you are going to get.
There are some subtle differences in what makes a stir-fry Thai. I used this recipe I found on the spruce, and my wife quickly responded that she has never seen that much sauce in Thai stir-fry. I can always count on her to give me an honest assessment. Last night I finished the ingredients by trying again and this time I used too much fish sauce for my second attempt. The recipe I am sharing got completely consumed by her but the second bout was left with only a few bites taken and a response, “too salty”. Gordon Ramsey and her would get along in assessing my cooking.
The main ingredients that tend to be more unique to Thai food are galangal, Thai chilis, and Thai basil and here, coconut milk to start with a few. I always go for light versions of ingredients, organic when possible, and low sodium as well. You can always substitute low sodium soy sauce for fish sauce to Westernize a bit more. I used the Spruce eats recipe as inspiration but changed several of the ingredients.
You don’t have to make so much sauce but it’s my favorite part so I go all in. Here are the ingredients. I have found that cooking is way more fun when you get everything cut and prepped before the time-intense part begins.
