Very colorful dish and full of vegetables, sweet chili sauce and mint! Mighty Minty Matey one might say in UK!
THAI TIP: You can either put this sauce over rice on its own without the Beyond Burger OR you can use crispy fried Tofu. You choose! The Beyond Burger picks up the flavor of the sauce in an instant. If you leave it longer it is absolutely divine darlings!
THAI TIP: Absolutely love fresh Kaffir Lime Leaves! But This Is Cool! You can also freeze them, either in their packaging OR you can put them in a freezer bag. When you want to use them just take them out about 30 mins before, put them on paper towels and they thaw out naturally and quickly.
