This meal is a flavor bomb! It’s hard to photograph the divine smells of the fresh chopped herbs, the spicy sweet flavor combination of fresh mango and peanut sauce, or the fresh watery crunch of lettuce and raw veggies. So you’ll just have to make it for yourself.
This is basically a Thai spring roll inside out without the wrapper. I intended to use rice noodles as a grain, but I ended up leaving it out because it felt bountiful enough without it!
