  • 1  Large Lemongrass Stalk, Trimmed And Cut Into 2-inch Pieces
  • 6  Thin Slices Fresh Galangal Or Ginger
  • 2  Thai Red Chiles, Seeded And Cut Into Thin Strips (use Less If You Prefer Less Spicy)
  • 3 Tablespoons Fresh Lime Juice

Made this last night. It was awesome! Couldn’t find lemon grass or Thai red chilies, so I added 1/3 of a red bell pepper and a couple squirts of sriracha sauce (and I used coconut oil rather than veg). Super tasty!
