Thai food is so popular, and little wonder...the combination of hot, spicy, sweet and aromatic is addictive! It's also perfect for vegetarians as Thai cuisine features lots of vegetables and frequently tofu instead of meat.
Thai dishes tend to be brightly colored and quick to prepare, making them a feast for the eyes and perfect for nights when you need something delicious, fast. One thing for vegetarians to note; many Thai recipes include fish sauce, so be sure to use a veggie-friendly alternative!
