You guys know that Iâ€™m all about simple, easy, and healthy recipes. Generally, anything with more than ten ingredients makes my eyes cross and my fingers dial for takeout.
This Tom Kha Phak Quinoa Bowl is a perfect example of my kind of dinner. Minimal prep, seven ingredients, and on the table in 15 minutes.
Tom Kha Phak is coconut vegetable soup infused with Thai spices, coconut milk, shitake mushrooms, and sweet potatoes. You could make it from scratchâ€¦ or you could just buy the Amyâ€™s version. Itâ€™s delicious!
The secret to this quinoa bowl is Amyâ€™s Tom Kha Phak soup. It does all the work for you â€“ instant and authentic Thai flavor.
Consider this dish your reward for a hard day of work.

Random side note, butâ€¦ We have these mushrooms growing in the backyard, and Iâ€™m totally obsessed. They go from the size of a quarterâ€¦
To a 4-inch tall mushroom with a big cap in a matter of HOURS.
And they keep growing. How cool is that?
Apparently I missed my calling as a botanist because I canâ€™t stop walking outside to check on my â€˜shrooms!
