    These were amazing! LOVED this dish! Next time I’ll do 1 or less drops of Ginger though, as it was a little strong, but certainly still quite yummy! Thanks for sharing!

    I just love these recipes and how the vitality oils can be added them. Just a great way to use more oils.

    Red curry paste- I never would have thought of that! Thanks for sharing! I can’t wait to try it! Although, I will probably mix my vitality EO’s with the housin sauce just to be sure the flavors spread throughout! 🙂

    I recommend red leaf or romaine for more nutritional value.
