Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. When the oil is shimmering, add the onion and sauté for about 5-7 minutes, or until the onions are clear and soft, adding a tablespoon or two of water to help prevent sticking if necessary. Add the garlic, ginger, curry paste, and tamari. Sauté for 2 minutes, or until the garlic is very fragrant.
  2. Add the stock, coconut milk, carrots, lemongrass, and red pepper to the pot. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Remove the lemongrass stalks from the pot. Transfer the soup to a blender in batches and blend till smooth, or use an immersion blender to blend the soup completely. Return the soup the pot, stir in the lime juice, and adjust seasonings to taste. You can also stir in some extra stock if the soup is too thick for your liking.
  4. Serve with chopped basil, finely chopped peppers, sprouts or microgreens, sliced avocado, or a swirl of coconut milk or cashew cream.

Instructions
  1. For the mango coriander dipping sauce, in a blender, add mango, lemon juice, water, salt and sriracha. Blend until smooth. Add the coriander and pulse 2-3 times till the coriander is chopped very fine, but green specks are still visible. Remove into a bowl and refrigerate till ready to use.
  2. To start making the rice paper rolls, create an assembly line of sorts. Take a cup of water in a shallow dish which is wide enough for the rice paper roll to sit comfortably without bending or breaking at the edges. In another plate, keep all your veggies together.
  3. Take one rice paper and dip it in the water for 5-10 seconds. Remove the paper and place it flat on the counter. It may still feel crisp, but don’t worry it’ll soften up pretty quickly. Don’t be tempted to dip it for longer than 10 seconds. Place all the veggies and the mint leaves towards one end of the paper, leaving some space to fold.
  4. If your veggies are placed horizontally across the rice paper, fold both the sides to the centre in such a way that they are a bit on the veggies. Now start rolling the sheet as tightly as possible without breaking it.
  5. Continue doing the same for the remaining rice paper till you have 7-8 rolls. Cover with aluminium foil to keep them from drying out. Serve cold with the mango coriander dipping sauce.

  5. Remove the wings from the oven.
  6. Pour the sauce into a large mixing bowl, then add in the wings and toss to coat.
  7. Pour the wings and sauce back on to the tray and return to the oven for 10 minutes.
  8. Take that same mixing bowl and toss in the shallots, coriander, and chopped peanuts.
  9. Once the wings are cooked, remove and add them back into the bowl, tossing with the green onions, cilantro, and peanuts.
