Recipe

If I am eating Thai food you can be assured that I have ordered some version of the Thai Basil dish on the menu. I just love the combination of the earthy Thai basil and the usually insane spiciness form the Thai red chili peppers. After a trip to Thailand last year when I ate my weight in Thai Basil, I was dedicated to figuring out how to make some at home versions that tasted as good. Since it is hard to find Thai red chili peppers, I used Asian garlic chili paste instead to create the heat and if you can't find Thai basil, regular basil will work just fine. Then everything is stir-fried with seitan, lots of veggies, garlic, ginger, and a combination of soy sauce and oyster sauce to bring everything together. Yum.
