I'm in love with this dish! I made it without the lemongrass, tamarind paste, and Kafir leaves (where to find those?). It still was amazing. the prep really isn't that bad. But since I had most of the ingredients already (spices, ginger, lime, soy sauce, and AC vinegar stay in my pantry) it wasn't such a big deal for me. It does take some time if you do it alone so it's best for a weekend meal. But it's soo worth the effort. The cauliflower "rice" really set the whole thing off. Highly recommend it.

I love raw food, but a recipe with 25 ingredients DOES put me off! Even if you use a food processor to do the veggie prep that's a lot of items to take out, measure, put away. I'd rather make a simple Asian stir fry with less than half the ingredients. BTW, if I was going to all that effort to use fresh ingredients like Kaffir lime leaves and fresh Lemongrass I sure wouldn't use dehydrated onion or garlic powder either.

This sounds really interesting, a no-cook stir no-fry! I love raw cauliflower, and pine nuts, so might well give it a try. thanks:-)

Don't let the list of ingredients put you off. This was easy to make and was absolutely fabulous. It looked beautiful on the plate as well!

This is my favorite recipe ever. It's worth the prep and cleanup, which really isn't that much.
