This dish is surprisingly filling, I figured 2 sweet potatoes per person, but if you are serving a lot of other things then figure ½ to 1 sweet potato per person.
Fish sauce and palm sugar can be found at any Asian market, they have such mouthwatering flavors that you don’t have to worry about not using them again and again!
Mung beans are a legume in the same family as lentils and peas. It has many health benefits including a high source of fiber, protein and antioxidants and originated in India. You can often find it in the legume section of your supermarket, but if you can’t you can always use any kind of lentils instead!
This is one of my favorite pargiot (chicken) dishes. I love making garlic this way because I make a big batch of it and it lasts for weeks in the fridge. I use the garlic as needed in chicken, salads or on crackers and I use the olive oil for cooking or in salad dressings. It is just a win win!
Even if you don’t have a vegetarian coming to the meal, it is always nice to have a tofu dish. Feel free to add a chili pepper to this recipe to spice things up a bit!
