This soup's got it all: the daring, sophisticated scrumptiousness of Thai flavors and the texture, sweetness, and orange comfort of baby food.
Weeknights are busy and many parents find themselves preparing the same meals over and over again. While ground meats are wonderful time savers, even beloved tacos and turkey burgers get boring after awhile. Why not mix it up a bit with some quick and easy Thai food? This tangy, Asian-inspired meal is just as simple as tacos, but tastes so fresh and fun. I prefer to eat it as a lettuce wrap, but the kids like it over rice. Don't let the fish sauce scare you away, it isn't particularly fishy and it lends a great depth of flavor to the dish. But if you can't find it in your supermarket (or don't want to try it), substituting equal parts soy sauce is fine too.
The perfect dipping sauce for chicken sate.
