FEATURE: COOKING LOCAL JONAH'S VEGAN TOM KA GAI

March 19, 2009

Check back, we'll post the recipe soon. For now, listen to the episode above!

 

**UPDATE**

Still working on getting Jonah's exact recipe, so here's a link to

another good version, using chicken in the soup (which is traditional). Of course you can leave the meat out and

just add extra mushrooms. I recommend using the fish sauce, however, even in a veggie version. This tiny amount of

meat will add so much authentic flavor! Note that the version below doesn't use lime zest like Jonah does, but it

does add bright yellow turmeric. Feel free to customize your own version.
