Make vibrant and tasty Thai dishes in a flash
This past weekend I re-discovered the beauty of some old recipes I had written years ago for Ger-Nis while re-purposing them for a mango cooking class I taught at the Sacramento Natural Foods Coop, which also happens to be one of my favorite grocery stores in the country.
The class, part of Crespo Organic Summer Mango Mania events, Fresh Summer Thai, featuring mangoes- reminded me of how lucky we are to have Mexican mangoes in peak season in the dead of our summer time. It also reminded me how Thai inspired recipes are some of the tastiest, healthiest and easiest recipes to whip up when it’s hot. I tend to forget how hot it gets throughout the USA and Canada, because I live in the one part of the country where cool foggy summers are the norm, where hot soup feels comforting to eat on the 4th of July.
These recipes were revamped from one of my most popular classes back in Brooklyn, where hot steamy summers were the norm and these refreshing, mango-centric dishes offered a cooling and joyful effect. By using them in the class myself, I was able to make some new alterations to the recipes and improve them. Making them even more tastier and even simpler than they were before!
