If you love Thai food but wish you could get some of the flavor without going out or buying tons of unfamiliar ingredients, this recipe is worth a taste. Powdered ginger can be substituted for fresh if you need to, and rice wine vinegar can be replaced with any light vinegar (white vinegar or sherry vinegar would work) in a pinch. Slightly sweet, slightly salty, and packed with veggies in a creamy sauce, this is a meal you’ll be glad to have leftovers of for lunch.
