This is a fun recipe that has been tweaked and played with for over 9 years. When I first started a low-carb lifestyle, I was really looking for meals that would satisfy the different cravings that come along. I love Thai food; my family loves Thai food, and this recipe was born to sate those cravings. As with most of my recipes, I tend to make it in phases. I go from making this once a week, to phasing it out, to falling in love with it again.
