THAI PRAWN TACOS

October 30, 2017
Vegetable packed and super flavourful – the perfect light yet hearty dish.

The perfect DIY dish when you’re not in the mood for being civil and using a knife and fork. This is a great, colourful meal for get togethers, Saturday nights in or a summer special when you want something that’s healthy but still feels indulgent.

You can sub the prawns for white fish if you’d prefer, or firm tofu if you’re looking for a vegan option. We’ve included a list of crunchy, fresh vegetables for you to choose from but feel free to add or remove whatever takes your fancy.
