Meat Free Monday #2
Another Meat Free Monday went by, I’m still sticking to this everybody :)My highlight is the holy basil stir fry that’s an all-time favorite here in Thailand. It’s a spicy dish but it’s absolutely delicious. If you are not in Thailand it might be hard to find fresh holy basil and I’m not sure if you’re allowed to plant them. But if you can get a hold of them you must try this dish! This is a vegetarian version (minus oyster sauce), but it is still lovely, I think the pumpkin played a big part in balancing the flavors with its sweetness.
holy basil (only the leaves)
chopped crushed garlic
Again I’m not specific on the measurements. That’s how I cook 🙂 You can taste as you cook to find out how you like this made. You don’t need a wok, I cook Thai food in flat bottom non-stick pans all the time and they still work. First you heat up the oil and add the chopped garlic and the pumpkin and mushroom Next add the soy sauce, add a little water and then chilis and holy basil. Stir them together until the holy basil has wilted a little and it’s ready to be served with white rice.. jasmine rice is even better!
