The Spicy Coconut Milk Dressing I Love on Everything Lately

We expended the earlier week on the west shore of Lake Tahoe not considerably from wherever my spouse and children would remain every single summertime when I was youthful. The cabins alongside the lake are much larger now, the water low. Teens fling on their own from piers into the obvious, icy, waist-deep h2o. When the sky is cloudless, it’s the bluest location imaginable. The initially thing I produced as soon as we had been settled into our camp was a spicy coconut dressing (sauce?) that would go on *everything* throughout the week. It is a variation on other spicy coconut milk dressings I’ve produced in the past, but this variation has a great deal going on with grilled peppers and minced onions. You can see how I used it here, tossed with rice flake noodles, grilled tofu and what ever desired to be utilized up in the cooler – roasted tomatoes, cilantro, and lemon.

Component: Vegan Fish Sauce

For the salty component in this dressing I get in touch with for vegan fish sauce. I have been earning a handmade model of it lately, working with a recipe from Andrea Nguyen’s forthcoming At any time-Green Vietnamese cookbook. I have created other versions in the past, but her recipe is the finest vegan fish sauce I have produced. Now 100% my go-to. When the guide is out you really should definitely give the recipe a try out. In the meantime, there are some great vegan and vegetarian fish sauces out there for buy, such as this Ocean’s Halo vegan fish sauce.

Just incorporate it as the past component in the dressing, and insert it to taste.
