Nancie McDermott is the queen of Southern food, but she’s also an expert on Thai food. You have to check out her book, Simply Vegetarian Thai Cooking which has tons of vegan recipes. Nancie suggests that we serve this with rice and sliced cucumbers; or serve over pasta for vibrant and beautiful Asian-style curry-noodle soup.
