Notes

To increase the amount of protein in this dish, try adding a protein source like crispy baked tofu, edamame, cooked lentils or chickpeas.

To increase the amount of fat in this dish and add some delicious crunch, try serving it with chopped peanuts or cashews.

You can use regular coconut milk if you prefer, it will just increase the amount of fat in the recipe but be extra creamy and delicious that way, your call!
