This is my favorite recipe so far. Loved this one and I am sharing it with all my friends. I wasn't able to get lemon grass but used lemon zest instead. I will make this one again and again!

Very good. I really enjoyed the process of simmering the sauce and all the flavor from it! The bok choy was nicely substantial and the dish was filling, tasty, and unexpected.

This recipe was delicious and just the thing I needed after a rough first week of detox. I added a bit more salt to the finished dish. It's wonderful squeezed with lime.

Delicious! I added a little honey (about a tsp), salt, and lime juice to the veggies. I tossed the wedge of lime into the coconut broth while it simmered. I will absolutely make this again. Lemongrass is the best....
