dinner for two: thai summer veggie bowls

I whipped this up one night last week when I didn’t feel like cooking. I was this close to ordering in take out, but take out is unhealthy and my fridge had some very healthy items that needed to be used up. Cute, tiny summer squash from the farmer’s market, a few random leaves of kale, some baby bok choy, and a 1/2 a can of coconut milk. It seemed like my fridge was telling me: make a stir fry now! And so I listened.

After my vegetables were prepped and ready, I realized that I was out of soy sauce. Instead of panicking, I decided to go with fish sauce as an instant replacement. It was a good move. I also added in some Indian curry paste (though I’m sure a Thai curry would have been more authentic) and my good ol’ standby, chili garlic sauce. If you want something really hot, a squirt or two of sriracha is the way to go.

In no time, or so it seemed (really, this is a 30 minute meal), dinner was ready. I served this over Japanese sushi rice, which is probably the quickest rice to use when you’re in a hurry and you don’t want to heat up your kitchen any more than you need to. Lucky for us, it was really delicious and way better than greasy delivery pizza.
