Thai Hot and Sour Stew

When I first met Raj, he took me out for Thai food. It was the first time I ever had it. I loved it instantly. Unfortunately, we don’t eat out at Thai restaurants anymore because our favorite dishes contain coconut milk – and even light coconut milk has more fat than our diet allows. I made some modifications to one of my favorite soups, and it turned out very well. I’ll definitely be making more of this in the future.
