2 large mushroom, sliced
1 TB peanut butter
1 tsp. Agave syrup
1 tsp. Patis (a/k/a Thai fish sauce)

=====

Directions ~

In a medium-sized dutch oven pot, melt the coconut oil over medium-high heat. Combine the next 3 dry ingredients and cook in the oil for a minute (takes the raw powder taste out). Next, saute’ in the onion, ginger, garlic and Kafir lime leaves and cook until onion just translucent. Stir in the Vegan chick’n. Turn the heat down slightly. Add in the coconut milk, Sriacha paste, bouillion, peanut butter and the water you used to cover the potatoes. Stir everything together. Add the mushrooms. Add Agave and Patis to taste. Add in potatoes and turn down heat to medium-low and cook for 20 minutes or until tender, lid on.

Serve with Jasmine rice.

Serves 4.

Add a salad or appetizer for a completely full meal. A light cold dessert (Haupia, maybe?), fresh sliced mango or chilled lichee fruit would really round out this feast. Enjoy!
