This coconut sauce is light, full of flavor and absolutely versatile. I prepared it with prawns.  However it goes well with chopped chicken, all sorts of vegetables or tofu for a more vegan alternative.

Can be prepared couple of days in advance and warmed up and poured over your favorite ingredients. To make it of a thicker consistency and the sauce absorbed, add rice, lentils, quinoa, barley or any grains of your liking.

As for the vegetables, use what is on hand. let your imagination go wild.

Deliciously good, but then do not take my word for it and give it a try.
