Tips & Notes
Notes: Garnish with 1/4 cup (60 mL) finely chopped toasted peanuts if desired. For a nut-free option, substitute 2 tbsp (30 mL) toasted sesame seeds or 2 tbsp (30 mL) flax seeds, or stir in 1 tbsp (15 mL) nut-free soy butter. Garnish with 1 to 2 chopped fresh Thai chilies for a spicy finish. Recipe submitted by Half Your Plate Industry Partner BCFresh
